Curriculum Design Is Overwhelming

Curriculum design is overwhelming, especially against the backdrop of increasing workload and an ever-changing educational landscape. The result is that primary leaders and teachers are often left with a fragmented, disjointed curriculum that lacks coherence and clarity.

With ongoing pressures, both internal and external, it feels impossible to design a curriculum that is sequential and that builds cumulative fluency across all subjects and all phases.

Why Just Teach Subjects When You Can Grow Experts?

All too often in the primary sector, foundation subjects end up being diluted through a thematic or topic-based approach. Children can find it hard to articulate which area of the curriculum they are focusing on.

Sonar Curriculum ensures that children are equipped with the skills, knowledge and understanding to become experts in all areas, with cumulative fluency built into each and every subject.

Our Map Maker tool and Curriculum Toolkit enable school leaders and teachers to build and have ownership of their own bespoke, context-specific curriculum maps, and medium and short term planning, based on the needs of their children and community.

Alongside the Map Maker function, there are also two fully-resourced and planned implementation opportunities. The Subject-Specific Curriculum targets a smaller number of curriculum areas with units of learning lasting between 2-4 weeks while the Thematic Curriculum encompasses a larger number of curriculum areas with units of learning lasting approximately 6 weeks. For both of these implementation opportunities, medium and short term planning is provided, along with a vast bank of resources and materials to save teachers hours and hours of time.
