Project Based Learning

Project Based Learning has been introduced this year to widen and extend the curriculum; to inspire curious learners, foster a collaborative based approach to interdisciplinary learning, to develop independent learning and to expand and develop pupil experience.

In week 2 of our timetable, all pupils will be engaged in PBL activities around school. Each year group has a different focus and within each year a carousel of 3 termly activities operates, so pupils participate in all 3 projects throughout the year.

Pupils will be taught the necessary content and given information needed, but will also have
opportunities to work autonomously, developing their projects within their groups and utilising their skills, whilst developing and learning new ones such as problem solving, decision making, communication skills, research skills, ICT and time resource and time management.

The outcome will be different in each project, some producing a written piece, whilst others produce a documentary or a piece of drama. These will be showcased throughout the year on Twitter, in the Newsletter, on the Website and in live performances.
