A Broad and Balanced Curriculum in Primary Schools
Educating the whole child
- Susan Ogier - University of Roehampton, UK
Exploring the Primary Curriculum
Primary schools and teachers in England are tasked with providing a Broad and Balanced curriculum. As pressures of standardised testing and the focus on English and maths impact on teaching time, how can teachers ensure that they remain focused on this as an objective?
How do we ensure that the curriculum truly is Broad and Balanced? How do ensure that we are educating the whole child?
This book provides both discussion of the current challenges and practical guidance and support on how to tackle them. It informs and inspires new teachers to teach across the curriculum, and to empower the next generation of children to explore what is possible for them within their own future lives.
This second edition includes new chapters on curriculum design; alternative environments and learning spaces.
This book is useful to support our PGCE students in their academic module about curriculum design. Chapters on learning to enquire and transforming learning spaces are particularly helpful in making links to curriculum and learning spaces in other cultural contexts.
