Interdisciplinary lessons allow students to learn by making connections between ideas and concepts across different disciplines. Students learning in this way are able to apply the knowledge gained in one discipline to another, different discipline and thus deepen the learning experience. The very first interdisciplinary lesson in this school year was held for the students attending the Lower Secondary programme who came across this way of learning for the first time. 

Serbian, Spanish, and Art and Design teachers held an interdisciplinary lesson for Year 8 and Year 9 students. The students had the task to write words in Spanish and Serbian, compare their roots, and discover their Latin origin, and they also observed some morphosyntactic similarities. They also needed to draw portraits and describe them in Serbian in order to practice speaking. 

This was a great opportunity for the students to improve the skill of connecting different subjects. These kinds of lessons will definitely prepare them to take knowledge from one subject area and apply or compare it with the knowledge from another.
