This section aims to provide you with ideas for both in and outside the classroom under a range of themes to include colour and light, materials, history and the world around us.

Working in a broad and integrated way through projects that explore themes enables children to develop a deeper understanding of concepts, and this provides opportunities for practical application in other subjects. Children are required to develop research skills through carefully planned and implemented activities where the teacher becomes a learning partner with the child. Children’s own questions, ideas and outcomes are valued to enable personalised learning to take place. See learning for the 21st century. .
