The Department for Education’s current review of the National Curriculum is intended to identify the essential knowledge that pupils need, to make the curriculum more focused than it currently is, and to hand control back to teachers.
But how children learn is as important, if not more so, than what they learn. Michael Gove has spoken of his concerns about ‘the drift of educational thinking … away from subject disciplines and towards cross-cutting, thematic, multi-disciplinary learning’. He believes that ‘one thing stands out in all the most successful schools … – they rest on traditional subject disciplines’.
Is this right? This report poses three questions:
Do all the most successful primary schools structure learning around traditional subject disciplines?Should primary schools set aside their natural enthusiasm for thematic approaches, and focus instead on strong, subject-based teaching?Should we be exerting top-down pressure on primary schools to deliver learning in this way?
