Inspired by nature | Please note that the Natural Curriculum is a beta site: we are currently piloting the site with Year 4 and Year 5 teachers, whose feedback we will use to ensure our site’s content is of the highest possible standard for classroom learning. However, given the COVID-19 crisis, we have opened the site to the public to support home learning during this unprecedented time. In addition to this, we have produced a bank of literacy resources for Years 1-6 to help support parents with their children's home learning. For hour-long Year 4 and Year 5 grammar lessons, click on the 'Year 4 Grammar Lessons' circle, or the 'Year 5 Grammar Lessons' circle. For literacy resources to assist parents with home learning, click on the Home Learning Resources (Year 1-6) circle.
