6 Summary of Session 7
In this session you learned about creative support for children’s learning and basic elements of cross-curricular thematic work in primary schools.
Observing and listening are a big part of creative support for children’s learning. In Session 1 of this course, you heard Professor Alderson talk about ‘co-construction’, and cross-curricular, creative approaches can open possibilities for children to take an active part in their learning with adults.
You should now 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.
In the final session of this course, you will look at how adults who work or volunteer in primary schools are learners themselves.
You can now go to Session 8.
