Planning the Curriculum for The World Around Us
The Statutory Curriculum is the starting point for planning a school curriculum that meets the needs of individual pupils. You can use the following resources to help plan the learning, teaching and assessment for The World Around Us in your school.
At all stages, you should encourage your pupils to become active participants in the learning process. Involve your pupils in choosing topics that interest them. Where possible, you should connect learning to current events using the key elements that underpin the curriculum objectives as a guide. You should ensure that, where appropriate, you integrate aspects of the other Areas of Learning.
