Developing Cultural Capital through Pathways

Cultural capital is about equipping all pupils with an understanding of life and all that it has to offer. In the national curriculum, it states, ‘It is the essential knowledge that pupils need to be educated citizens, introducing them to the best that has been thought and said and helping to engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.

In Pathways to Write and Read, we have aimed to inspire pupils through the texts that are shared with them. The texts chosen cover a wide range of curriculum themes as well as creating windows (for pupils to see the wider world) and mirrors (for pupils to see themselves). Texts and units are updated regularly with themes to reflect what is happening in the world, such as looking at the effect plastic has on our natural world or celebrating the opening of Shakespeare North Playhouse.

Some example texts which develop cultural capital:

  • The Mysterious Case of the Missing Mammoth (P2W) – giving pupils a window into museums, what they look like, what they have inside and how exciting they can be
  • Seal Surfer (P2W) – observing the beauty of a British coastline alongside watching a young boy overcome his disability and learning to surf
  • Grandad’s Secret Giant (P2W) – seeing how kindness and friendship can bring a community together despite their differences
  • Radiant Child (P2W)– the story of the artist Jean Michel Basquiat who is regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century
  • Environment units (P2W) – inspire pupils to be the next David Attenborough, Greta Thunberg or Ken Nedimyer; to help save the planet
  • Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls (P2R) – celebrating women who have experienced the greatest achievements (Sylvia Earle, Rosa Parks, Michelle Obama, Evita Peron, Miriam Makeba, Amna Al Haddad, Jane Goodall, Malala Yousafzai)
