Ideas change over time and teachers implement approaches to learning in different ways for their pupils. Sometimes certain approaches (such as a mastery or topic-based approach) are seen in schools, or a specific theme is used that takes its lead from National Curriculum subjects (such as Space, or The Victorian Era). There are many differing approaches; such as a cross-curricular approach, immersive learning, enquiry-based learning or the Forest Schools approach. In schools, you may see other methods such as the International Primary Curriculum (topic), Mantle of the Expert (pupils in role working on a commission for a client), Take One Picture and Montessori philosophy (play based), to name a few. Not all of these can be covered in this chapter but below are links to finding out more about some approaches not discussed.
