Increasingly, pupils are working on a set of lessons that take the form of Interdisciplinary Learning. This is when some of the experiences and outcomes for two or more curricular areas are explored in depth through a theme, e.g. World War 2 – Language and Literacy, Social Studies and Expressive Arts. Pupils will learn about the theme through cross-curricular activities thus providing more depth and understanding as a result.
Often parents and carers are invited in to school to be involved in the delivery of Interdisciplinary Learning and to see the final outcome of Interdisciplinary Learning tasks – this may be, for example, a performance or presentation.
