Wider Curriculum

At Dane Bank Primary School, we teach our Geography, History and Science lessons around a learning question for either each half term or term. Through this question we also link other areas of the curriculum e.g. music, art/design.

  • Our Science learning question for the Summer term is: ‘What plants would Little Red Riding Hood find in our local park?’. 
  • Our Geography learning question for the Summer term is: ‘Where is Greater Manchester and what is there here?’.
  • Our History learning question for the Summer term is: ‘Why should we be proud of Greater Manchester?’. 
  • As part of our Art and Design & Technology lessons, we will be making a Manchester Bee mosaic and creating Lowry inspired artwork.
