05: Curriculum design and ‘learning not lessons’ with Farmilo Primary School
We had two special guests join us for episode five of our podcast for school leaders and teachers, The Curriculum. Adam Newman is Curriculum Lead and Anthony Robinson a Year 3 RQT at Farmilo Primary School in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. They talk about curriculum design and how the decisions they’ve made are having a positive impact on their school.
As Curriculum Lead, Adam touches on the people and philosophies that have inspired Farmilo’s curriculum design. He also talks about focusing on ‘learning not lessons’ and the importance of working together as a team of teachers to share expertise and plan. Anthony then looks at how these ideas translate to his everyday teaching in the classroom.
