Love this article! This also seems to me a great example of how learning by topic, rather than separating by lesson type, enables classes to practice multiple skills in a cohesive way. During my time in Primary Schools I found that learning by topic engaged children more, created discussion & helped them retain information better. In my view, it’s a really valuable developmental skill; helping children apply what they learn to the world around them. Thus reducing the risk of teaching disjointed knowledge that gets forgotten once no longer required to pass a test.
