The Primary Knowledge Curriculum
At St Peter and St Paul, we are now using the Primary Knowledge Curriculum in Reception to teach Understanding the World and through Key Stage One and Two to teach geography, history, science, art and soon DT.
The curriculum is carefully sequenced and knowledge rich which aims to inspire pupils and promote excellent outcomes for all.
The curriculum content has been carefully chosen by subject experts and is organised in a coherent way, ensuring children can build on their knowledge from year to year. The knowledge in the curriculum is cumulative, constructing firm foundations from which children can progress and develop deeper conceptual understanding and disciplinary skills over time.
Curriculum coherence ensures that teaching does not jump from topic to topic, but enables children to develop knowledge over time, as well as a love of subjects. Subject content is crucial to this approach- the rich content of the curriculum inspires children and plants the seeds for a lifetime of learning.
