A child’s curriculum is going to be a defining factor in your child’s development, which will help them work on their personal development at all key stages in their life. Parents should also be clued in on what their child is studying and how they are getting through their curriculum. Here is a quick rundown of what’s going to come up in your child’s curriculum over the years.
Your child’s age
From toddler age, your child will be following the EYFS curriculum, which will lead into Key Stage 1 – 4. Your child will be studying each of the Key Stages until they reach age 16, where they can choose to head on to further studies at A Level (Key Stage 5) or a different qualification.
Your child’s age simply dictates where they are in their development of the main UK school curriculum, though the specifics of each lesson and subject may vary between schools.
The subjects your child will study
There will be a set of compulsory subjects your child has to learn, with particular attention on their numeracy, literacy skills and science skills. These then all help your child with other subjects, such as Chemistry, Biology and Physics, as well as History, Geography and loads more. The compulsory subjects are designed to help children get the most out of their extended curriculum as they go through the years.
What this all goes towards
At the end of your child’s studies, they will go through a series of exams – GCSEs. These will define where your child goes next with their studies. Based on what they’ve been studying in their curriculum so far, you’ll find that your child should have a general understanding of all the key subjects from school. But your child should also be revising on a regular basis, getting up to speed and ensuring they’re ready for these crucial tests.
