    Very helpful doc, thank you. Cold you direct me to the mention of work on electricity at KS1, in the draft curriculum (or anywhere?) please? You mention it under ‘further skills’ for KS1 in your Scientific Understanding KS1 doc. Thank you

      The main ‘further skills’ would be found in the 2010 curriculum document (I’m not sure if it’s still online – I have an e-copy if you would like me to email to you.

    Dear Alex,

    Thank you so much for this document – I was delighted to come across it, because I was desperately hacking away trying to produce something similar.

    I was wondering whether or not you had any plans to update it now that the final version has been released? Sorry if that’s a cheeky request, but it’s such a useful tool that I’d love to be able to use it!

    Best regards,

    Rob Campbell

      … it’s on the ‘to do’ list!

        Hi Alex,

        Just a quick question to find out whether or not you have had any chance to update those brilliant grids for the September curriculum? I really want to use these in school, but want to ensure that any changes from July draft have been covered!

        Thanks so much for sharing this really helpful resource!

        Many thanks,

        R. Campbell

          Hi Rob
          I have updated it to the finalised curriculum and put it on TES resources here:

          Best wishes

            Alex, these are great, thank you.

            Another quick one – where did you draw the ‘skills that children need to learn to make progress’ and ‘Which skills are the children learning?’ bits from in the text of the curriculum? Obviously, the attainment targets are directly copied, but I can’t find verbatim the skills bits. Just curious – wherever they came from, they’re very helpful…

            Many thanks again,

            Rob Campbell

              Hi Rob

              All the skills come from the proposed 2010 curriculum document

              Hope this helps

                Ah! Good stuff, many thanks Alex.

    Dear Alex,

    Your document on history and geography look great – thank you for sharing these!

    Are you aware of any publications that have or may be released by the DfE to support particular topics, similar to those that were produced by the QCA in the past?

    I am currently in the process of trying to decide how topics will fit into our whole-school history planning and something to use as a foundation for lesson planning would be very helpful.

    Thank you,

      Hi Luke

      I know Tim has some very good ideas for topics elsewhere on this website (especially a progression of themes in history). I have just started “Storytelling Schools” training with the idea that my school will become a ‘storytelling school’ with stories and storytelling underpinning the themes covered in the different terms, for example next term is ‘Fantasy’ so fantasy stories will be the basis for learning with knowledge and skills coming from activities exploring the stories. There is more information on this approach here (*THIS IS NOT AN ADVERT!*)

      Best wishes

    Thank you for these I know colleagues have found them very useful. Do you intend to add ICT to this list as I am struggling to find much?
