What needs to change in the curriculum?
Who should develop the curriculum?
What should be the aims of the curriculum?
Prompt - ‘The purpose of the every school’s curriculum will be to support our children and young people to be:  • ambitious, capable learners, ready to learn throughout their lives  • enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work  • ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world  • healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.’ (Welsh Government)     ‘The national curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge they need to be educated citizens. It introduces pupils to the best that has been thought and said, and helps engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.’ (National Curriculum in England: framework for Key Stages 1-4)     Curriculum for Excellence places learners at the heart of education. At its centre are four fundamental capacities. These capacities reflect and recognise the lifelong nature of education and learning. The four capacities are aimed at helping children and young people to become:  • Successful learners  • Confident individuals  • Responsible citizens  • Effective contributors (Education Scotland)
How, if at all have events of the last few months (Covid19, Black Lives Matter) affected your thinking about the curriculum?
What should be the main features of the EY curriculum?
Prompt - Three characteristics of effective teaching and learning identified by the EYFS are:  • playing and exploring - children investigate and experience things, and ‘have a go’;  • active learning - children concentrate and keep on trying if they encounter difficulties, and enjoy achievements; and  • creating and thinking critically - children have and develop their own ideas, make links between ideas, and develop strategies for doing things.
What should the ‘basic features’ of a 21st century primary curriculum?
Prompt - 'Literacy and numeracy are fundamental to primary education. But we must be able to extend their scope beyond reading, writing and arithmetic and to ask what, in the 21st century, is truly ‘basic’ to young children’s education.' Cambridge Primary Review
What knowledge do young people need in order to engage critically and meaningfully with the world? What sort of skills do we need to develop?  (Mark Priestley TES, Jan 29)
How should what students learn in school relate to their communities?
