Planning the Primary National Curriculum
A complete guide for trainees and teachers

Third Edition
Edited by:


March 2021 | 320 pages | Learning Matters
A complete guide for trainees and teachers

To prepare to teach the new Primary National Curriculum, trainees need more than just the Programmes of Study. Trainee teachers need a resource to help them understand, plan for, teach and assess the curriculum. This is the guide to planning the Primary National Curriculum.

This book explores how to plan in primary schools. It covers curriculum design and structure, challenges to learning, and how children learn. New in this edition is a piece on Decolonising the Curriculum.

For each curriculum subject the programme of study is included, with notes to help students interpret it for in practice. The text covers how the teaching of each subject can be organised, assessment opportunities, key and essential resources in each subject, and how ICT can best be used in each subject to enhance teaching. Sequenced lesson examples in all subject chapters link theory to practice and highlight progression.

The final section of the book explores the many ways in which the curriculum can be delivered. It includes the creative curriculum, dialogic teaching, cross-curricular learning and more current thinking about interpreting the curriculum.
