jigsawOverview of the Primary Curriculum

Based on National Curriculum published in September 2013

Core subjects (English, Maths & Science) are presented in a year-by-year format, based on the outlines given in the National Curriculum.  History is also presented in this format, based on a suggested programme.

All other subjects are presented in two-year sections, dividing KS2 into Lower and Upper Key Stages.

It should be noted that it is only statutorily required to cover each Key Stage’s content by the end of the key stage.  It is for schools to decide on the most appropriate ordering for their situation.

Information for Parents

Below you will find samples of the target sheets that children in Key Stage 2 use to assess their own work in maths and in writing.

It is a good idea to talk to your child about the target sheets, what they are doing in their work and to help them to think about how they can improve their work.
