Hi Guys,

I'm currently doing the projected budget for Humanities next year and I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good set of text books for Citizenship or Personal Social Development in Years 7 and 8?

Kind Regards

I don't suppose anyone has got a SOW for teaching RE, PSE or Citizenship?

I've recently taken over the humanities faculty and I'm desparate for some resources and ideas.

We are advertising for a PSE teacher in the TES this week!

My school adopted the following...

1) PSE done through enhanced curriculum days and the linked via schemes of work
2) RE at KS4 short course stopped because two halves will no longer make a whole
3) To get the RE at KS4 route we plumped for full course Hums (WJEC) and used the PSHE time for it

What do you think to the new AQA GCSE Working Life?

Well you need to show some RE at KS4 legally, therefore doing enhanced curriculum days that can also support other issues such as CA catch up is better than doing owrking life. Also Hums utilises the humanities faculty who because of ebacc are a key group according to Raise.

What key stage are you looking for Roy?

I used to co-ordinate PSHE and so ahve a pretty good KS3 curriculum. I got the curriculum changed so that KS3 have PSHE every week.

Regarding RE - I have made tonnes of stuff myself based on teh GCSE short course for WJEC.

Same for Citizenship short course.


Let me know what you want.

I'm starting from scratch and to some extent I'm flying blind at this moment in time. I've found a copy of the citizenship order on the national curriculum website and I've managed to get a copy of the locally agreed syllabus for RE, but is there a nationally agreed curriculum for PSE?

In terms of curriculum time, I've got one period a week to teach PSE, Citizenship and RE. Its not enough, but its all I have so what I'm planning to do in our two year KS3 is to have rotating programme of a term each for each topic. In terms of specialist, I have one citizenship teacher, no RE teachers, but I am interviewing from a PSE teacher next week.

Previously, PSE, Citizenship and RE were taught in a multi - discipline subject called Spectrum by non specialist teachers along with Maths, English, ICT and Science. That didn't work out too well and was heavily criticised by Ofsted. I managed to keep both Geography and History out of, but it cost me a considerable amount of political credibility at the time and made me very unpopular with the previous powers that be.

Anyway, thats all water under the bridge now and the political lanscape has changed. Meanwhile, I've done some basic research, but this is all new to me and itís unfortunately fallen on my shoulders in my new role as HOF Humanities to design a new curriculum. :no:
