Cross-Curricular Topics

Cross-curricular learning: topic planning packs for a creative approach to teaching in primary schools.

These primary topics for KS1 and KS2 cover a range of exciting learning themes. They're completely ready to teach and include detailed lesson planning and resources for engaging cross-curricular learning.

If you're looking for inspiring KS1 and KS2 topic ideas and activities, you've come to the right place! In each of our creative curriculum topics, you'll find up to 24 cross-curricular plans (with slides, worksheets, and a range of fun activities, too). They're designed to save teachers time and provide fantastic learning experiences for your class, too.

Whether you plan to teach in phases or to individual year groups, all of these primary school topics include a huge range of highly-differentiated learning activities, so you can be sure the learning is appropriate AND sufficiently challenging for all your pupils.

Our Cross-curricular Topics and Topic Bundles are slightly different. Cross-curricular Topics are perfect if you are looking to teach a ‘mini’ topic over a series of afternoons. A Cross-curricular Topic consists of 5-7 lessons in a lead subject, plus several discrete lessons across a range of other subjects. Topic Bundles cover a topic in more detail, and last half a term or longer. They consist of 4 complete series of lessons all centered around the same theme. 

You can see the National Curriculum objectives covered in each pack by clicking on the product and scrolling down the product page to the grey tabbed section.
