Hi Shona,

Welcome to the course! In terms of educating children about development education, I am drawn to the term ‘the most appropriate way possible’. I feel this is really important. Development education can be taught at all stages of the primary school, but must be tailored to the age of the pupils in question. In the senior classes, we can delve into the themes in greater depth, but they can be introduced and discussed from infants. The integrated approach is so effective, and you have outlined 4/5 subjects that closely align with development education, making it easy to ‘map’ to the curriculum for planning.
