The Big Idea

The Curriculum, who is it for?

Ask these four questions to a child in your class and it may reveal the true answer:

  • What are you learning and why?
  • How does this lesson link with what you learnt last time? What might you learn next?
  • How do you know how to get better in this subject?
  • Does this work challenge you and make you think more about the subject?

If the answers are fairly convincing, it’s likely that the curriculum is for the child you spoke to. If not, then it’s likely the curriculum is simply a planning checklist.

Of course other factors (great teaching, practise opportunities and accurate assessment) are vital to sequencing a curriculum well.
