Session 7: Creative support for children’s learning

Introduction

You’re into the final two sessions of this course.

You’ve learned about ways to observe and listen to children in primary schools, and about IT and computing in the primary school curriculum. In this session, you will explore creative and cross-curricular learning.

By the end of this session, you should be able to:

  • understand cross-curricular thematic planning in primary schools
  • recognise cross-curricular links across academic subjects
  • identify some creative ways to support children’s learning.
