The main aim is to raise standards and address the perception that
children in England are falling behind some of their international
counterparts. It is designed to produce productive, creative and well
educated students.
Although the new curriculum is intended to be more challenging, the
content is actually slimmer than the current curriculum, focusing on
essential core subject knowledge and skills.
The focus is very much on core skills and a body of core knowledge.

The goal posts have changed but
the DFE has this to say:
‘We make no apologies for having high
expectations for our children,’ DfE
spokesperson.
‘We believe they can achieve more, and we will
not stand by and allow pupils to lose ground with
their peers in countries across the world.’

For most children, the changes
have taken place from this
September, but children in Years
2 and 6 will follow the existing
programmes of study until
September 2015 in English,
Maths and Science.

• English is set out in year by year
expectations for Year 1 and Year 2.
• They have merged Year 3 and Year 4
expectations and done the same
with Year 5 and Year 6.
• There are separate appendices for
specific content to be covered in
the areas of spelling and vocabulary,
grammar and punctuation.

• The learning objectives have been organised
under new headings.
• Spoken language
• Reading – word reading and comprehension
• Writing – transcription (Spelling, Grammar and
Punctuation)
- composition (plan, draft, edit, proof
read)
- handwriting

• Reading is to be taught mainly using phonic
strategies but:
• ‘ at the same time ‘hear, share and discuss a wide
range of high quality books to develop a love of
reading and broaden their vocabulary’
- ‘Spoken language’ has been slimmed down and is
not age differentiated
- SPaG is much more specific and the content is
more advanced
- There are more objectives to cover within the
writing process

• There is a huge emphasis on reading for
pleasure
• Re-reading books because you have
enjoyed them is encouraged
• There is an emphasis on enjoying and
learning poetry
• There is more emphasis on writing
dictated sentences and summarising texts.

Y1 Reading
Pupils should be taught to:
 apply phonic knowledge and skills as the route to decode words
 respond speedily with the correct sound to graphemes (letters or groups of letters)
for all 40+ phonemes, including, where applicable, alternative sounds for
graphemes
 read accurately by blending sounds in unfamiliar words containing GPCs that have
been taught
 read common exception words, noting unusual correspondences between spelling
and sound and where these occur in the word
 read words containing taught GPCs and –s, –es, –ing, –ed, –er and –est endings
 read other words of more than one syllable that contain taught GPCs
 read words with contractions [for example, I’m, I’ll, we’ll], and understand that the
apostrophe represents the omitted letter(s)
 read aloud accurately books that are consistent with their developing phonic
knowledge and that do not require them to use other strategies to work out words
 re-read these books to build up their fluency and confidence in word reading.

Years 5 & 6
Pupils should be taught to:
 develop their understanding of the concepts set out in English Appendix 2 by:
 recognising vocabulary and structures that are appropriate for formal speech and writing,
including subjunctive forms
 using passive verbs to affect the presentation of information in a sentence
 using the perfect form of verbs to mark relationships of time and cause
 using expanded noun phrases to convey complicated information concisely
 using modal verbs or adverbs to indicate degrees of possibility
 using relative clauses beginning with who, which, where, when, whose, that or with an implied
(i.e. omitted) relative pronoun
 learning the grammar for years 5 and 6 in English Appendix 2
 indicate grammatical and other features by:
 using commas to clarify meaning or avoid ambiguity in writing
 using hyphens to avoid ambiguity
 using brackets, dashes or commas to indicate parenthesis
 using semi-colons, colons or dashes to mark boundaries between independent clauses
 using a colon to introduce a list
 punctuating bullet points consistently
 use and understand the grammatical terminology in English Appendix 2 accurately and appropriately
in discussing their writing and reading.

MATHS
The most significant impact comes from
increased expectation . More demands have
been put on pupils of all ages and many
objectives have been brought forward in the
curriculum – in some cases by multiple years –
with a number also receiving tweaks or
additions in order to make them more rigorous.
BUT there is an emphasis on BREADTH rather
than rushing on to the next stage.

Aims to ensure all children:
•Become fluent in the fundamentals of
mathematics
•Be able to reason mathematically by
following a line of enquiry
•Solve problems by applying their
mathematics to a variety of routine
and non-routine problems with
increasing sophistication

www.primarycurriculum.me.uk
The programme of study is set out on a year
by year basis, with objectives set for specific
year groups; the way the curriculum is
organised varies across the primary age range
– every year group has a unique combination of
areas to cover.
But,there is some flexibility in when schools
teach content within each Key Stage.

- There is no longer a separate strand for
using and applying mathematics- it’s
across all areas
- Calculators (greater importance placed
on mental fluency and efficient written
methods)
- Informal written methods of calculationmore traditional methods for written
‘sums’

Why change from ICT? Apparently ‘ICT’ has a
bad reputation linked to a dated and unchallenging
curriculum.
Along with the new name a more ambitious and
rigorous set of Programmes of Study have
been created that will develop computational
and logical thinking. Stronger links to real
world systems are at its core.

Algorithms?
Algorithms are quite simply instructions.
The language we write these instructions in are
programs.
As a school we are using a variety of software
programs such as ‘Scratch’ , ‘Logo’ and ‘Purple Mash’
to support the children in programming.

Other areas are woven through the rest of the
curriculum so that children may be studying a
History unit on Romans ( Y4)but are also using map
skills to identify where the Romans
originated from and which countries they
settled in and how the land was used etc:

How will the new curriculum be
assessed?
Levels are out as a national comparative
measure but not for current Y2 and Y6 and
we need to have them ‘in the background’
for a little while yet.
After summer 2015 the government will be
introducing a new national comparative
measure for attainment and progress
( as yet this has not been specified).
© Michael Tidd, 2013
www.primarycurriculum.me.uk
How will teachers assess my
child in the other year groups
and after 2015, for all?
Teachers will continue to use their
professional expertise to judge
whether a child has grasped a taught
concept fully, partially or not at all.
The difference is that this knowledge
won’t be made to ‘best fit’ a level.
( it will in the background for this year to
ensure accurate progress benchmarks).

We have introduced a new system called
Classroom Monitor, which we hope to be able
to share with you in more detail by February
half term.
This plots exactly which taught concepts your
child has achieved and we hope will provide
much more meaningful information for you
in the long run.
BUT: Like all schools, grappling with this new
system will take time, which is why we need
levels running alongside for much of this
year so there is no danger of losing track of
how well your child is progressing.

There are cautions however but a
useful part of our wider reading
assessment nonetheless!
