Dear Core Knowledge UK Supporter,

We are proud to release the complete Core Knowledge Sequence UK for Years 1 to 6. Core Knowledge UK provides pupils with a sound, well-rounded education in the arts, humanities and sciences. The Sequence UK is the backbone of the Core Knowledge UK curriculum. This year-by-year outline provides teachers and home educators with the specific content and skills that pupils should learn during Key Stages 1 and 2.

Helping children to develop robust reading and writing skills is essential to help them understand not only literature but also history, geography, visual arts, music, maths and science. See the Language Activities featured below to learn more.

A recent article from the New York Times describes how children learning the Core Knowledge curriculum have outperformed their peers. Read more and follow the link below!

Featured Activity: Language

The resource book What Your Year 1 Child Needs to Know provides parents, teachers and home educators with extensive guidance on how to teach children to read and write. This is summarised on our Year 1 Language Activities page and shows how learning to read and write is fundamental to support children's education in other subjects.

Core Knowledge UK in the News

A study conducted by the New York City Department of Education found that students at ten schools using a Core Knowledge curriculum outperformed those at ten comparison schools. Students reading nonfiction works from the Core Knowledge Sequence scored significantly higher than others. The Core Knowledge curriculum also enabled students to outperform their peers in history and science.
