Design and Technology Association - Sir Jim Rose on ill-defined topic work

In an update on http://www.dcsf.gov.uk/primarycurriculumreview/ Sir Jim Rose re-asserts the importance of ‘high quality subject teaching’ in primary schools. He rejects claims that the Primary Curriculum Review is about abolishing subjects. On making links between subjects, he says ‘this is certainly not a throwback to the past where ill-defined ‘topic work’ ruled the primary roost and sold many children short of a good education’.

 

The Design and Technology Association welcomes this clarification. Later this month Richard Green and Gareth Pimley will be meeting Sir Jim for a second time to discuss the place of design and technology in his proposals for a revised primary curriculum.
