Digesting the KS1 Curriculum

Digesting the KS1 Curriculum

A detailed breakdown of the KS1 curriculum, examining the various elements of it and what might be expected from each statement. Learn about how to meet the objectives of the National Curriculum through carefully selected topics and insert meaningful links that make the learning resonate with younger children more.

An exemplar KS1 curriculum is given as guidance and to see how threads can be made to tie the entire KS1 curriculum together. A series of steps are then included to help build an effective topic that isn't simply a 'potted history of events and individuals.' An overview of historical skills is also included so that the younger children can start to tackle some of the more complex disciplinary skills of history that will develop throughout KS2.
