Your Partner in the Classroom

Working in partnership with Smart Kids and Scholastic

The National Curriculum remains a huge influence in the way lessons are planned and taught across the country. It's been three years since the launch of the National Curriculum in English schools and within that time teachers across the country have expressed their views on what's working - and what's taking a little longer to implement. Our expert partners, Scholastic Education, surveyed the 10,000 teacher subscribers to their online Resource Bank to ask them about the challenges they continue to face in fully implementing the curriculum.

The survey identified some common themes across different subjects:

  • The need for appropriate teaching resources to deliver the curriculum
  • The lack of appropriate frameworks to track the progress of skills across Key Stages 1 and 2
  • The lack of support for linking subjects across the curriculum

In addition, there was some valuable feedback about specific issues with particular subjects:

Maths:

the new focus on teaching to mastery – and what precisely this means.

Science:

how to teach the ‘working scientifically’ strand of the curriculum appropriately

English:

lack of availability of resources that match the difficulty level of the new curriculum


Filtered by subjects below, you will find feedback taken from the survey for each subject, with expert advice on how to tackle these concerns by Scholastic’s curriculum specialists. You’ll also find suggested resources to help you fully implement the curriculum in your classroom.
