Primary Cross Curriculum - Two Successful Projects

Description

Two primary schools demonstrate their cross-curricular approach to teaching with contrasting projects, highlighting creative opportunities within the National Curriculum.

Year 3 and 4 pupils at Ombersley Endowed First School in Worcestershire have spent the term studying maths, literacy, geography, art, ICT and science as part of a project on rainforests.

Heath Mount Primary is an inner-city school in Birmingham which has gone from special measures to receiving an outstanding recommendation from Ofsted. Their first themed week about Africa was influenced by parents who were new to Birmingham and who wanted to share their Somalian culture with the school community.

Both schools highlight the importance of engaging emotionally with children and show how the National Curriculum is open to interpretation in creative and inspirational ways.
