The International Primary Years Curriculum is based on thematic units of learning , which are designed to appeal to children’s interests and help them to learn more about the world around them.
Similarly, the International Middle Years Curriculum has themes and involves six weeks of learning based around a ‘Big Idea’, which aims to help students in every year group to achieve coherence and connection within their subjects.
Futuraskolan International Rådan’s library now has a bookcase dedicated to displaying books based on the themes that the classes are studying.
This bookcase is a new addition. At the moment the signs on the bookcase are handwritten, but bigger signs are on the way!
Already, two topics are on display: Courage for the upper grades and the human body on for the lower grades.
This will be a great way to expose students to books from a variety of genres and help them make connections across their subjects.
