I couldn't believe it when I read the proposed national curriculum- It was as bad as I imagined! I find the history curriculum positively dangerous: completely chronological rather than thematic or skills based and overly 'nationalistic/monocultural. Dry as anything! How an earth am I going to equip my KS2 pupils for life? Reminds me of the rote history learning my Mum had to do, when she was taught all about the wonderful crusades. What's all this business also of reference to 'our' history. Why don't they say British?
