The role of being a subject lead in primary schools has recently taken on much more significance as the demands and expectations have been raised in foundation subjects like history and geography.
Jon Hutchinson, director of training and development at the Reach Foundation, explores what is needed for pupils to excel in these subjects, and the importance of delivering a curriculum which is ambitious, broad, well sequenced and rich in knowledge that builds year on year.
In this webinar, Jon Hutchinson will focus on the importance of curriculum thinking and will share seven key curriculum questions that every subject lead, at primary, should be able to answer. He’ll share the sharpest insights from curriculum theory, such as how to balance substantive and disciplinary knowledge.
All this theoretical knowledge will be illustrated through real examples of materials developed at Reach Academy Feltham such as knowledge-based work booklets and essay structure strips. Delegates will leave the webinar with a new lens through which to review and develop their own curriculum.
