Discover a cross-curricular unit of work that places a holiday topic in a fun, real-life context

Children in classroom

Jan Randall, with Mel Lever, teaches one of the parallel Year 5/ 6 classes at Nursling Primary School in Hampshire. Here, Jan explains some of the learning tasks that the two classes did as part of a thematic, cross-curricular unit of work called The Holiday Show from the International Primary Curriculum (IPC)

Travel exhibition

‘As typical of IPC units, the Entry Point into The Holiday Show topic provided an exciting introduction to the work ahead. In this case, the children were asked to plan and prepare a stall for a travel agency exhibition. This involved working in pairs, selecting a country, researching its best features for potential holiday-makers, and collecting pictures and relevant props to display at the exhibition.
