Episode 10 of The Curriculum is the first of three episodes we’ve recorded with special guest, Hywel Roberts. He talks about his journey in education, including some of the people who have inspired him along the way and his own philosophy on teaching. It’s absolutely fascinating to hear Hywel talk us through his career so far, so a big thank you to him for joining us on the show.
Episode 9 of The Curriculum podcast follows up on last week’s introduction to SMSC and fundamental British values. This time we focus specifically on the ‘cultural’ part of SMSC. We look at how Ofsted refers to it, what it means for schools and how school leaders and teachers can build the cultural aspects of SMSC into their curriculum.
Episode 8 of The Curriculum podcast provides an introduction to teaching children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development (SMSC), and fundamental British values (FBV). We cover what those things mean, their impact on children’s learning, and how schools can make sure they cover the requirements set out by Ofsted.
Episode 7 of The Curriculum podcast is here and it features a fantastic interview with Lyn McNamara, who has more than 25 years of experience working in education. Topics include defining what a curriculum should be and do, the importance of literacy running through a curriculum, and the impact a broad and balanced curriculum can have on a school.
Episode 6 of our new podcast – The Curriculum – is available now and features an interview with Anthony Robinson, an RQT at Farmilo Primary School. Anthony talks about his experience of curriculum design and how Farmilo’s approach has given him the autonomy to be creative and inspire children through imagination.
We had two special guests join us for episode five of our podcast for school leaders and teachers, The Curriculum. Adam Newman is Curriculum Lead and Anthony Robinson a Year 3 RQT at Farmilo Primary School in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. They talk about curriculum design and how the decisions they’ve made are having a positive impact on their school.
Episode 4 of The Curriculum is available for you to listen to now. This time, I’m joined by Catherine Scutt, Amy McCaw and Laura Bell, all Curriculum Consultants here at Cornerstones. We’re talking about the idea of a broad and balanced curriculum again, this time in the context of covering everything you need to in the national curriculum.
Episode 3 of The Curriculum, our brand new podcast, is available now. Once again, we have Melanie Moore, Curriculum Director at Cornerstones, and Catherine Scutt, one of our Senior Curriculum Consultants, on board to continue the discussion about broad and balanced curriculums. And this time the focus is on planning.
