Current Practice
• How does your curriculum map support
  cross curricular learning?
• How have you used cross curricular
  links in your teaching?
• Share any examples of projects you
  have tried or would like to try?
Comparing Curricula Activity
  First look through Science, then
  compare to either English or
  Mathematics.
• What are the similarities/differences?
• How could the 2 subjects support each
  other?
Fruits by Valerie Bloom
• I will read a poem, listen to it.
   – How many fruits can you recall?
• Read the poem yourself.
   – Underline any words that are unfamiliar to you
• Watch Mike read the poem...
   – How is the learning experience different?
• Listen again whilst looking at the images of fruit.
   – Does the use of images change the experience? If so,
     how/why?
Task: Developing a Project
• In groups, discuss how using these
  resources can support the teaching of
  the English NC Programmes of Study.

• Note ideas for using these resources on
  your curriculum map.
Describing Fruit




How many adjectives can you list to describe this fruit?
Describing Fruit




 How many adjectives can you add to your list?
Describing Fruit
• Explore the fruit.

• How many adjectives can you add to
  your list?

• How did having the real fruit enhance
  the learning experience?
Comparing Fruit
• We have practiced describing fruit, now
  we are going to use the skills we have
  developed in a whole class setting in
  individual and partner work...
Sorting and Classifying Fruit
How many ways can you group the fruit
 on your table.

Use your comparison grid to help you to
 come up with ways to sort your fruit.
Task: Developing a Project
• In groups, discuss how using these
  activities can support the teaching of the
  Science NC Programmes of Study.

• Note ideas for using these resources on
  your curriculum map.
Fruits by Valerie Bloom
• Listen to the poem again with a different
  set of images.
  – How does this influence the way you think
    of the poem?
Printing with fruit
• Make a repeating pattern by printing
  with your fruit.
• Move tables, try to make an identical
  copy of someone else’s pattern.
Task: Developing a Project
• In groups, discuss how using this
  activity can support the teaching of the
  National Curriculum.

• Note ideas for using these resources on
  your curriculum map.
Fruit Observation
• Feely feet/ hands...
  – How is the experience different when feet
    are used rather than hands?


• How can we encourage children to use
  all their senses when observing?
Task: Developing a Project
• In groups, discuss how using this
  activity can support the teaching of the
  Science NC Programmes of Study.

• Note ideas for using these resources on
  your curriculum map.
Fruit Survey
• Taste the fruits and put them in order of
  preference using the images.
• Imagine we are going to make a fruit
  salad. How will we decide which fruits to
  include and how many of each?
• Create a recipe for the ideal fruit salad
  based on your survey.
Task: Developing a Project
• In groups, discuss how using this

Science Enquiry
•   Classification
•   Observation
•   Survey
•   Fair test
•   Problem solving
•   Research
Planning Time
• Work in pairs to develop the fruit project
  further or plan your own cross curricular
  project.
• Be prepared to give a brief presentation
  about your project to the rest of the
  group.
