We have divided the KS1/2 curriculum into four units, repeated on a two-year cycle so that pupils return to and deepen their knowledge three times in their primary career. Progress within topics has been mapped to ensure the previous year’s learning remains learnt and new learning builds upon strong foundations.
Each of the three primary ‘spirals’ is written at the same time with progress across KS1/LKS2/UKS2 a key goal. Retrieval practice is designed into the curriculum to ensure learning from all o the geography cycles is revisited throughout the year.
The following cycle covers the KS1/2 National Curriculum.
