Abstract

What does an integrated primary curriculum look like? How can cross-curricular work help children to learn more effectively? With practical ideas on how to join-up the primary curriculum, Cross-Curricular approaches to the primary curriculum uses history and geography to explore different contexts and strategies for making links between subjects, so that learning is more integrated and relevant to learners. It also demonstrates how these subjects can serve as the basis upon which values can be developed in the curriculum. There are powerful case studies, including examples of pupils' work and talk, and teachers' reflections. A companion website contains further examples. Chris Rowley and Hilary Cooper bring together a group of practising teachers and university tutors who offer suggestions on cross-curricular approaches to teaching, keeping values education at the heart. This book will be invaluable to practising primary teachers, student teachers and all those involved in curriculum design.
