20 New National Curriculum Programmes Of Study For each curriculum area there are different programmes or areas of study and for each year group there are age related standards within the programmes of study Each subject has had changes made to it and the core subjects quite significantly. Expectations are higher so for example, concepts which were taught in Y2 are now being taught earlier in Y1. Lets look at English- PoS

21 New National Curriculum Programmes Of Study English Spoken Language Reading- word reading, comprehension Writing- transcription (spelling), handwriting, composition, vocab, punctuation & grammar

22 English Curriculum: Main changes Continued emphasis on systematic phonics, including a progression in teaching, which is already well established in our school. At all levels, there is emphasis on spelling, punctuation and grammar, as well as vocabulary development. There is a focus on reading for pleasure with all children encouraged to ‘read widely across both fiction and non-fiction …, to establish an appreciation and love of reading, and to gain knowledge across the curriculum’. This includes the school, setting ‘ambitious expectations for reading at home’. Spoken language is a huge focus in the English curriculum, with the inclusion of ‘talk for writing’, reciting poetry, debates etc.

23 New National Curriculum Programmes Of Study Maths Number- Place value, addition & subtraction, multiplication & division Fractions Measurement Geometry Statistics Ratio & Proportion (Y6) Algebra (Y6)
