Product reviews for Reclaiming the Curriculum

Julie Kent, B.Med.Sci (Speech),PGCHE,MA (Education), FHEA, MRCSLT Course Leader/ Senior Lecturer Childhood Studies
This text is valuable in going beyond Foundation and making students aware of possibilities across the primary age range. The way that it has a curriculum focus as well as an "approach" focus in different chapters is especially useful, with its emphasis on creative teaching across all subject areas. 

The introduction provides a very useful context to the current situation and helps to make links to the many early years pioneers and approaches which sadly seem to be consigned to nursery in many schools . The challenge to maintain a curiosity approach and provide provocations at all stages in Primary is refreshing! 

I will certainly be adding it to the core reading list for my Y2 students on the BA (Hons) Childhood Studies for their Enriching Learning module. This module seeks to support students to recognise aspects of practice which enrich children's learning experiences within and outside the classroom and this text is particularly accessible. I have also shared it with colleague who teach on our primary ITT degrees in the School too.
