Thought is was interesting today. Haven’t seen anything as direct before.
So the recommendations are:
English 5 hours a week
Maths. 4 hours a week
Health and PE 2 hours a week
Science 1.75hours per week – This seems different to the 300 minutes recommendation??
History. 1 hour a week
Geography 1 hour a week
Economics/business 30 minutes
Civics and Citizenship 30 minutes
The Arts 1.25 hours a week
Tonight’s staff meeting which focussed on spelling was well received and people participated actively in discussion. It seemed to run smoothly, although much more time could have been spent on the Scope and Sequence at the start. Aspects that could have been improved are: accountability of groups to report back/ make a commitment, making Professional Learning Communities more of a focus with a leadership person in each team.
I felt comfortable and confident presenting information. I hope that some queries were clarified, as prior to this there seemed to be some people who were uncomfortable about some of Stephen Graham’s suggestions.
