making connections with prior learning
Making connections with prior learning
  • Ask staff to think about:
    • Things that they used to do in the classroom but no longer have time to do - “The children always enjoyed…”
    • Best lessons - “The best learning happens when…”
    • Personal memorable learning experiences.
  • From this compile a list of
    • Contexts / themes for learning that children enjoy.
    • Approaches that work / engage children in lessons.
    • Things we should do more of...
identifying priorities
Identifying priorities

Use the QCDA activity “Identifying Priorities” (hand / head / heart) to personalise your vision for the curriculum.

This activity has been conducted with wide ranging audiences – we agree what is important!

clarifying the vision
Clarifying the vision

Use the idea “If…then…” to clarify the outcomes that stakeholders want to see.

For example:

If…we want better problem solvers then… we need to create a curriculum that challenges pupils’ thinking with real / realistic problems.

If…we want more confident individuals then… we need to help children understand that getting things wrong helps us to learn how to get things right.

signs of success
Signs of success

Look at the “If…then…” statements that you have created – are there signs of success?

If…we want better problem solvers then… we need to create a curriculum that challenges pupils’ thinking by them with real / realistic problems.

What evidence is there that we have carried out our intended actions?

What evidence is there that these actions have impacted on children’s learning? – The right impact?

Signs of success (cont’d)

In a similar way, return to the activity “Considering our resources”

The same questions…

What evidence is there that we have carried out our intended actions?

What evidence is there that these actions have impacted on children’s learning? – The right impact?

involving the right people
Involving the right people

Remember to share developments and evaluations with those who care about learning and the learners.

How can all these individuals and groups be involved in the collection of evidence?

assessing what we value collecting the right evidence
Assessing what we value – Collecting the right evidence

Dissertation title?

Many education professionals believe that there is an over-emphasis on a narrow range of performance measures. To what extent can primary educationalists demonstrate that their work has a value beyond the teaching of basic skills?

celebrating success
Celebrating success

We will know we have succeeded when we have identified some things to celebrate.

Plan your celebrations – allow time from the outset.

Special events provide opportunities for reviewing progress and sharing success.

Records of your ‘curriculum journey’ provide an historical record to help with review and future planning.
