Our approach encourages our pupils to build the skills and learning habits to become independent thinkers – preparing them for life way beyond school.
We emphasise the benefits of working together with a partner, who changes regularly. This means that no child is put on the spot and we all benefit from sharing different perspectives and thought processes.
Real life learning
Say we’re looking at water. We might visit a local river to measure its speed, flow, width and depth in maths, study watery creatures in science, take a trip to the Thames to see how it has affected London’s history, make a model of the Thames Barrier in design technology and study Hokusai waves in art.
It couldn’t be further from chalk and talk – it’s learning as an adventure and it’s always fresh and relevant.
