Hamilton has thousands of session planning resources for teaching cross-curricular topics in primary schools. But did you know that we make over 500 of these documents available for free?
Hamilton's cross-curricular topics offer myriad opportunities to explore a the rich and varied curriculum that teachers, children, parents and inspectors want to see in your classroom. Our new topics format allows you to filter by subject, so that you can find teaching materials for English, maths, science, computing, geography, history, music, PE, PSHE, RE, DT, art and design, dance SMSC, drama and global citizenship easily. (Filters are currently available for reception and key stage one; key stage two will be coming soon.)
Topics are oragnised in blocks, each of which covers a particular area of a topic and culminates in a meaningful outcome for the children. You choose how many blocks to teach and in what order. Blocks are made up of a variable number of sessions, which you can teach once a week or in a more concentrated period of time, according to your planning.
There are free topics across the age ranges. To start teaching now, choose your age range.
All six blocks from our reception topic 'Celebrations' are free to all users. Explore the children themselves in 'Celebrating Me', religious leaders in 'Special Birthdays', and religious and secular festivals in 'Carnivals and Parades', 'Festivals of Light', 'Saying Thank You' and 'New Beginnings'.
Hamilton's substantial topic on 'The Romans' in Britain' will give you as much material as you could desire to teach this well-loved subject. Of course, you will find history here, but also lots of art and design as well as geography, design and technology and English.
'Early Islamic Civilisation' showcases many of the cultural and scientific achievements of the Muslim world. Science and history also come together in our free 'Dinosaurs and Fossils' topic. Our free 'E-safety' mini topic will help your children continue to develop safe practices in their digital lives. Hamilton also provide a block all about 'Human Reproduction and Relationships' to help you teach these fundamental, but sometimes difficult, subjects.
