Hands-On Education: Making Learning Fun and Interactive
Hands-On Education's approach to the National Curriculum is centered around the idea that children learn best when they are having fun. This is why they have designed their framework to cover as many parts of the curriculum as possible through interactive and enjoyable activities, lessons, and worksheets. They have fully mapped out the curriculum for each year group to ensure that their online educational activities align with the national curriculum of England. This makes it easier for parents and teachers to use it as a separate reference guide to ensure that children are on track with their learning.
Below is a list of year groups and their corresponding curriculum guides:
- Year 1: Covers the basics of English, Mathematics, Science, Design and Technology, History, Geography, Art and Design, Music, and Physical Education
- Year 2: Builds on the foundation of Year 1, with an increased focus on developing reading, writing, and mathematics skills
- Year 3: Introduces new subjects like Computing, Languages, and Religious Education, in addition to continuing to build on the foundations of English, Mathematics, Science, History, and Geography
- Year 4: Further develops skills in English, Mathematics, Science, Computing, History, and Geography, and introduces new subjects like Design and Technology, Art and Design, and Music
- Year 5: Focuses on developing problem-solving skills, critical thinking, and independent learning, with a continued emphasis on English, Mathematics, Science, History, and Geography, as well as Languages, Religious Education, Art and Design, and Music
- Year 6: Prepares children for secondary school, with a focus on increasing independence, responsibility, and self-awareness, while continuing to develop skills in English, Mathematics, Science, Computing, History, and Geography, and introducing new subjects like Citizenship and Physical Education.
Overall, Hands-On Education's approach to the National Curriculum is designed to ensure that children are engaged and motivated while learning, with a focus on developing key skills and knowledge across all subject areas.
