ITE - Planning a Cross-Curricular Theme



Rachel Jenkinson, a third-year trainee teacher with a chosen specialism in art, wants to deliver a cross-curricular theme on farming to a Year 2 class.

Her tutor at Edge Hill University Cait Simpson, and Lucy Price, the class teacher at Garswood Primary, support her through the process of formulating a scheme of work and putting it into action.

The results of Rachel's preparations are displayed as the class spends a day at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, where she has planned activities based around a detailed look at a painting of a farm in the nineteenth century.

The class also visit a working farm to encounter live farm animals and learn about where food comes from.
