This page provides links to an eclectic mix of thought-provoking and information-rich websites relevant to Life-Based Learning.

Many of them are websites with teaching and learning resources for immediate use with children, whether in the classroom or in a home-schooling environment. Others have been particularly helpful when developing LBL.

All of them demonstrate an interest in children being involved in life-focused learning..

Please note that a link here is not an endorsement of the concept of LBL as such.

Key government websites

As the concept of a life-based curriculum originated in Britain, a key website for information and reference is the national curriculum in England. This sets out the subjects children between the ages of 5 to 11 have to study. It is an important reference, given that the purpose of this website is to propose an alternative to subject-based learning.

Similarly, the PSHE Association website is an important point of reference for what has to be learned as part of the national curriculum in England. PSHE covers statutory and non-statutory themes and dimensions that are central to life-based learning, such as health, emotional development, relationships, community (living in the wider world) and citizenship.
