Developing a Curriculum for Long Term Learning


Developing a Curriculum for Long Term Learning

In recent years there has been a growing interest in curriculum design with Ofsted acknowledging that there has not always been a sufficicent focus on this during inspection. As Amanda Spielman HMCI says in her initial commentary on curriculum -

'A striking conclusion that we have that despite the fact that the curriculum is what is taught, there is little debate or reflection about it.'

In light of current findings from the field of cognitive science, Clare Sealy and Andew Percival have been working to develop a rich curriculum that promotes long term learning in their respective schools. Join them to find out more about the intent, implementation and impact of such a curriculum.

The day's training will focus on:

Current national perspectives on curriculum

An overview of how memory works and how this can influence our thinking about the curriculum

Developing a curriculum that promotes long term learning through applying research from cognitive science

Developing a curriculum that puts rich knowledge and vocabulary at the heart of learning
