His Tory curriculum or history curriculum?

Hard to tell the difference , frankly.Opposition to Gove’s woefully misguided changes is gathering pace.Admittedly there are some primary colleagues who are looking forward to cherry=picking from the new KS2 changes. I have yet to find a single defender of the expectation that KS1 pupils will be learning about the meaning of nation and civilization. At KS3 it does seem odd, perhaps even to Gove that all that secondary expertise is invested in just 200 years of teaching mainly British history.
One further thought, if only 75& of KS2 pupils are ready to access the KS3 curriculum at age 11 how is it now that it is being foisted on them aged 7 or 8. Or am I missing something?
