Hi all, I am in the process of completely revising how we teach,plan and assess. As a school we agreed that topic/thematic based teaching was the way forward for us. We are a small mixed year primary school with higher than average levels of SEN. I am now looking for a functional and efficient planning format to replace what in truth were over detailed and time consuming weekly individual subject plans. My teachers are very creative and have come up with a format that is not dissimilar to 'Cornerstones'; it includes a central theme with the subjects being delivered surrounding it with key skills identified for English and Maths. My staff would like to run each topic/theme for 4 weeks producing a learning map for each 4 week block rather than weekly plans for English and Maths. My question is: has anyone else moved to a similar curriculum model and what expectations have you set for planning documents? The 4 week example they have proposed includes spaces for weekly additional info and reviewing. Any help would be great.
