The COMPLETE Curriculum Pack, as well as the above, contains a daily timetable for the following subjects (except Art).

  • History: We recommend two History components for Year 5. If you follow our recommendations throughout Key Stage 2 (that is, from Year 3 to Year 6) your child will have covered all the History required by the National Curriculum in England. You may make different choices for these two components by clicking on the drop-down boxes on the order form. Whatever you choose for these two components, they are both included in the price for the Pack. You may wish to add a third History component to your Pack by choosing from the third drop-down box. If you do choose a third component this will be charged extra as indicated.
