The perfect combination of system and curriculum guides students

demonstration of the curriculum design in UKidSchool

  • History

    cover

    The topic will start with the subject History and will continue to be the first subject studied in this topic every week because Roald Dahl’s life is so interesting, and his life story also crosses over with some key moments in modern History on the British national curriculum.

  • Geography

    cover

    Roald Dahl’s life lends itself perfectly to studying Geography, because his life is neatly broken up into five distinct parts – where he was living in a different country for each part. In geography we will study the five countries that each played a key role in Roald Dahl’s life.

  • English

    cover

    We obviously have to study some of his wonderful stories . The only problem is deciding which ones to study, because of so many classics! We will study his most popular stories. Reading and enjoying stories is a crucial part of the national curriculum and no difference with my teaching approach in Ukid. Children can learn more through stories and also be inspired by the mind from where they came from; the creative genius of Roald Dahl.

  • Science

    cover

    Roald Dahl had many things in life, and he was even an inventor! The final subject each week is Science. To be honest, we could study Science all year through links to Roald Dahl books, but I have chosen to focus on Science lessons stemming from only one of Roald Dahl’s books, ‘James and the Giant Peach’.

Why do I choose this topic?
The unit I have chosen to start year 7 with is ‘Roald Dahl’. Roald Dahl is a famous British children's author who wrote the kids' classics Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach, among other famous works. Roald Dahl is a national treasure in England and a hugely important creator of stories for children. Although Roald Dahl died nearly thirty years ago, he continues to inspire children all over the world today with his wonderful books.
How do I design a subject in this topic?
The Roald Dahl topic is structured in four parts that mirror his amazing life story and his children’s books perfectly. Roald Dahl’s life is so interesting he had to write two autobiographies – both became best-sellers!
Why is this topic worth learning for children?
I honestly believe that Roald Dahl is a topic that should be studied in any curriculum across the world. His stories are brilliant and have such great messages. Children learn to use their imagination and create their own stories each time they read a Roald Dahl book. They learn how important it is to dream big, be kind and never give up. Roald Dahl represents everything that is great about British literature for children and the wonderful values that go with it.
How do I embody PSHE and SMSC in this topic?
No matter what Roald Dahl book you study, you will be covering an area of PHSE. There are wonderful morals in each of the twenty books he wrote for children. In the English and History lessons, in particular, the Chinese students will encounter the following lessons in life:Never give up. Dream big. Use your imagination. Treat others as you would like to be treated. The importance of family and home life. Be kind to animals and the natural world around us. The importance of studying and reading. Happiness is found in always wanting to learn, even for adults. Other,students will slowly learn that there are lots of wonderful British values in Roald Dahl's books. For example, making the right decision in a difficult situation is an important value judgment.You'll find that in Roald Dahl's story, there's always a hero with a powerful moral guide worth learning.Students will recognize the true representative of Britain from Roald Dahl's world.For any student, this simple idea has great promise and inspiration.Roald Dahl fought in a war, nearly died and saw terrible things, but he still achieved more in later life than he had imagined. Perhaps the nine-week course is not enough for students to get a full picture of such a fascinating character and his popular work, but I believe that it at least opens a window for children to learn that there is such a children's writer in the Western world, he has so many interesting books worth reading. Perhaps, one day, the child will be because of my introduction into the world of Roald Dahl.
