A seeming reverse of last week’s announcement.
The Guardian reports:
After months of angst and debate over the omission of the term “climate change” from the draft version of the new geography curriculum for key stages 1-3, the Department for Education has today released the new wording.
The two versions remain virtually word-for-word the same, except for this section of the key stage 3 “subject content”. Under the head “human and physical geography”, the draft wording (pdf), first published in March, said that pupils should be taught to:
… understand how human and physical processes interact to have an impact on and form distinctive landscapes.
The new version (pdf) has now been amended to say:
… understand how human and physical processes interact to influence, and change landscapes, environments and the climate; and how human activity relies on effective functioning of natural systems.
