This thematic unit looks at movement and journeys from a cross-curricular perspective. It is mainly based in the subject area of The World Around Us exploring all the strands of history, geography and Science and Technology. There are also opportunities to explore aspects of Personal Development and Mutual Understanding.
In The World Around Us pupils are encouraged to explore the concepts of Interdependence, Place, Movement and Energy and Change Over Time. This thematic unit most obviously addresses Movement and Energy but the other aspects also feature as well.
This thematic unit draws on a huge amount of material as the subject of movement touches on almost every aspect of the World Around Us. Schools may choose to organise a visit either to introduce this topic or as the culmination of pupil work. Suggestions include Castle Espie, The Transport museum at Cultra, W5. Alternatively, a visiting facilitator could organise activities at school. This can be arranged with Action Renewables, Sentinus or the Road Safety section of DOE. Other big activities include setting up a wildlife garden to feed birds and insects including migrating birds; carrying out a traffic survey and becoming an eco-school. Links and further information about these are found within the relevant sections of this ICL.
