Delivering subject content through nine life themes
The LBL approach — with its nine life-learning themes — repurposes the traditional subject-based curriculum to provide children with the knowledge, knowhow and practices in the three areas to life and living. The LBL system benefits children of all ages from early childhood through to university education and beyond.
LBL provides a way for adults to assess just how much children are engaged in all areas of life.
All learning is organised into the three areas that make up a person’s life.
The three areas of life are:
The person as an individual in their own right
Other people in the individual’s life
The physicality of the space occupied by the individual
Each area is divided into three themes
The ‘self’ area of life: the themes of The Body, The Emotions and The Mind
The ‘other people’ area of life: the themes of Communication, Relationships and Community
The environment: the themes of Plant Life, Animal Life and Physical World
1 – For themselves:
grow up fitter and healthier
develop greater emotional strength and resilience
learn how to think clearly and learn effectively
2 – In their dealings with other people:
learn how to communicate clearly with others and in a variety of creative ways
learn how to form strong, stable and lasting relationships with family, friends and colleagues
be better prepared for the world of work and active community participation
3 – In response to the environment:
learn to value nature and the Earth’s plant life
learn to value and nurture animal life
learn about the importance of managing the Earth’s resources and living sustainably
Be reassured: all traditional subjects are taught through LBL’s nine learning themes to the improvement of children’s thinking, knowledge, skills, attitudes, values and perceptions of what their lives, their society and their environment are about.
