    Basically, look at how your subject can link with other subjects (involves support from other departments). I teach French mostly, so I've liaised with the Art dept to see if they could cover, Monet; Geog dept to cover parts of France when the kids study Rivers, that kind of thing. Not always easy. An assembly is always a way to show a bit of cross-curricular stuff (French songs, stories during Book Week, etc).I find the cross curricular idea quite exciting but I guess it's easier with languages than with some.

    Hi there. Am just going to sit down with all teachers concerned and look at SOWs. Everyone reluctant to change, as we will be having a big inspection next year :-(
    Will just try to cooperate with things like punctuation, for example, with Y3, adjectives with Y4, and so on, through to Y8 (we are a Prep school). Will keep things easy to begin with and hopefully it will all 'evolve' over the next couple of years!!
