Curriculum 2014 SUMMARY OF CHANGES AT KS1 AND KS2 Primary History п‚§ п‚§ п‚§ п‚§ Summary of Key Changes for 2014. Following the publication of the final programmes of study and through talking to primary teachers at regional events, it has come to our attention that there is still a great deal of confusion surrounding the final programmes of study for history about what is statutory, what is not, what can be retained from current units and what cannot. The following guide provides a summary of the key changes alongside some suggested alternatives and supportive resources. These are not an exhaustive list. Also in development are a new series of schemes of work aimed at new curriculum topics. Of course if you are an academy, you can choose to take on as much or as little of curriculum 2014 as you wish. The next 6 issues of our Primary History journal, adding up to a complete handbook, will provide you with detailed advice, resources and support for the changes that lie ahead. If you do not already subscribe to the Historical Association, now is the time to do so, ensuring that through our website and journals, you and your colleagues are getting the support that you need, all for just ВЈ60 per year per school.

Other elements of the old world study appear to fall more into the new early civilisations unit. However, there is nothing in the document to state that these 2 elements should be completely distinct. Therefore, if a school had in the past taught Egypt, Indus Valley etc, it could technically be possible to count this as both an ancient civilisation and a non-European society.
