Relating and reinforcing learning through themes

Be it math, meats and vegetables, or how food looks like before and after, you may notice that I’ve been describing lessons around a central theme – food!

Teaching with a theme allows children the opportunity to build up their understanding of the world around them, whether “vertically” (think of the process chain of growing plants and rearing animals to supermarkets to cooking) or “horizontally” (the concept of money and paying for your food). To top it off, we recap the vocabulary we teach in earlier lessons, thereby increasing recall.
