New Primary School Curriculum

The Primary School Curriculum has once again come under review, this time by Sir Jim Rose. He suggests a more flexible curriculum organised into ‘areas of learning’ rather than individual lessons. He suggests six areas:
English, communication and languages
Science and technology
Human, social and environmental
Physical health and well being
Art and design
Of course the arguments for and against have already started, but for once this seems like a pretty good compromise between the over structured subject based timetable currently taught as a result of the National Curriculum and the 1960’s topic based approach to learning.
Good luck to them.
