There are three areas which I am passionate about promoting in Primary Schools: outdoor learning for all years, physical activity as an integral part of life and learning, and interdisciplinary learning. I believe that when learning is linked across the curriculum in a real-world context, it makes sense to learners.

This is the full set of resources which make up the Starter For Ten project. Starter For Ten is a whole term, cross-curricular project for upper primary classes.

Groups are loaned £10 to start their business with the businesses running for four weeks after around six weeks learning and preparation.

The full project covers a number of curriculum areas: literacy, numeracy, health and wellbeing, religious and moral education, social studies and technologies. All lessons are fully linked to the Scottish Curriculum For Excellence. Each of the fourteen lessons includes a lesson plan, a PowerPoint presentation and any worksheets or other resources required.
