Although we will hopefully see some substantial change to some aspects of the new National Curriculum proposals, it also seems quite feasible that much of it will remain the same. With that in mind, I thought it useful to map out some of the key elements by year for ease of reference. Accordingly, here is a single-page overview for each of the primary year groups, showing the main content to be covered in each subject. Core subjects and History are covered year-by-year, with other subjects set out on two-yearly cycles.
The year-a-page document for KS1 & 2 can be downloaded here: Curriculum Overview for Years 1-6.
It should be noted that drastic changes are expected to at least the History proposals. See this article at the Guardian website: http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2013/jun/21/michael-gove-history-curriculum
