Hi I have started a new school who use a"creative" curriculum.But all of the reception classes and Nursery follow identical lesson plans that are regurgitated without alterations every two years and have done from the beginning of time it seems. Children's interests are not taken in to account, no one is allowed to deviate from the plans, even down to the stories we read and the songs we sing! This is the same throughout the school.Every class in the same year group has identical displays and identical books and lessons. How common is this? I am gobsmacked. I realise now having worked a creative curriculum in two other schools-different athourities.How lucky I was.I could teach what ever took my fancy or the childrens as long as it covered the learning objectives. I feel gutted,let down and really depressed. I love nursery and have always had such fun.I have always been graded well. Is what I describe above as normal?
