Making cross curricular links

One of the main purposes of Sir Jim Rose’s proposals for a new primary curriculum in England was to encourage schools to make more cross-curricular links. Of course, these proposals will now not become statutory, with the current subject-based National Curriculum remaining in force until the end of July 2012. Thereafter, we expect a new, slimmed-down National Curriculum, most-likely based on a similar framework of subjects. So where does this leave the role of cross-curricular links, which many consider to be central to good primary practice?

Firstly, it’s important to be clear about the difference between the ‘what’ and the ‘how’ of the primary curriculum. The best primary practice includes a blend of rigorous, discrete subject teaching and equally effective cross-curricular links – both approaches are needed for effective learning.

Schools - Teachers - KS2 Science - How we see things lesson plan. Science ks1 & ks2 teaching resources. The current national curriculum programmes of study for science at key stages 1 and 2 have been disapplied with effect from 1 September 2013 for pupils in years 3 and 4 and are no longer statutory in relation to those year groups.

Science ks1 & ks2 teaching resources

This means that schools are free to develop their own curriculums for science that best meet the needs of their pupils, in preparation for the introduction of the new national curriculum from September 2014 Science remains a compulsory national curriculum subject at all 4 key stages, and the existing programmes of study and attainment targets remain statutory for pupils in years 1, 2, 5 and 6 in 2013 to 2014, because they will underpin the statutory key stage 1 and 2 tests in 2014 and 2015.

New statutory programmes of study and attainment targets will be introduced from September 2014 for all year groups except years 2 and 6: for those year groups, the new curriculum will take effect from September 2015. For more information visit the DfE website: Word 2003.
