Primary Cross Curricular - Ancient Greece: Planning a Scheme of Work

Description

Paul Clifford, the British Museum's e-learning resources officer, demonstrates how teaching about Ancient Greece can be strengthened with ICT activities and mathematics.

Paul discusses the teaching with Bernadette Solomon, a Year 4 teacher at St Lawrence Primary School, Feltham. She reflects on her own scheme of work which includes a visit to the museum, which generates opportunities in English, art and citizenship.

Richard Woff, head of schools and young audiences education at the British Museum, suggests that good planning and following natural links will get the best out of a cross- curricular topic like ancient Greece.

Greek myths offer opportunities for literacy, strong citizenship and PSHE issues. Bernadette continues to be inspired by the wealth of curriculum links on offer and the interactive resources available.
