We have been developing our curriculum here at Throckley. Learning for us is about so much more than what is covered in our exciting lessons; we want children to be tuned into the world around them and to have a sound understanding of how they are connected to the wider world. For that reason, we have implemented a 'Daily Dashboard' in all classes each day. The dashboard includes dates, seasons, weather as well as interesting local, national and international events which help to develop the children's cultural understanding. It would be fantastic if you could ask children what they have learned from their dashboards and discuss topical events which are age appropriate. The Newsround website is a good place to find news which is appropriate for children. Perhaps they could even add topical pieces of news to their class's dashboard!
