Teachers plan six different ‘Integrated Learning Themes’ per year. These are cross-curricular ‘topics’; there is no fragmentation of separate subjects which in turn provides a more meaningful context for learning.
Themes are based on key concepts and central ideas which draw on the children’s experiences making internationalism and cultural inclusivity implicit. Students are taught to use critical and creative thinking skills across the curriculum.
The aim of organising the curriculum through themes is for BSB students to be articulate, engaged and enthusiastic about their learning and see the ‘big picture’, approaching topics from multiple perspectives and making connections between subjects.
