Theme based Learning

  • EYFS 06

Theme based Learning

We teach using termly themes that supports the focus of the curriculum. Key benefits include:

Theme based learning means that each skill area of the curriculum is connected to a topic. This could be a week-long theme, a month-long theme, or a theme for a term or even longer. Research shows that learning is an integrated process, and that theme-based education is beneficial in several ways as children benefit from the connections made across the curriculum. Rather than teaching each skill or topic in isolation students are encouraged to see that at different times of the day or through different subjects they can learn about different aspects of a larger topic. In turn this helps students see connections and start to make their own connections from one experience to another. It also helps students become creative in their thinking.

This approach to learning also gives our teachers the flexibility to follow student interests and extend or shorten the time spent on a theme based on the level of student interest. Our teachers have the experience and flexibility to build themes based on the interests of the particular group of students, while teaching age appropriate skills. Another benefit of theme based learning is that different age groups can have a shared theme and then work across age groups, which helps to build community.

 

Assessment

Each of the seven areas of learning and development are further broken down into Early Learning Goals – (seventeen in total). Throughout the course of the year, teachers assess the achievement of each student in relation to these goals. Judgements are made from observation of consistent and independent behaviour. Using Tapestry, an online learning journal, these goals are recorded and evidenced. Parents will have access to these learning journals termly.
