*This blog is about the July draft of the National Curriculum. For the latest version visit this page instead*
Following today’s announcement of changes to the draft National Curriculum (which is now presumably rather less of a draft and more of a last-chance saloon for any urgent amendments), I have updated the overview maps for the primary curriculum.
The documents show each primary year group on one A3 page, with an outline of the content to be covered in each of the National Curriculum subjects. Two versions are available: one shows the current content in straightforward form; the second is coloured showing the main changes since the previous draft that was issued in February.
Two things should be stressed: firstly, that this is just an outline and will not be sufficient for planning the whole curriculum, and that secondly the year-by-year approach is just a combination of suggestions from the DfE and from me. The only statutory requirement is that schools cover the whole key stage’s content by the end of each key stage; how you arrange it over the two years of KS1 or four years of KS2 is entirely up to your school.
