Project Based Learning gives our students the opportunity to explore, research and create independent projects over an extended period of time. Each term, when the new theme for the connected curriculum is announced, we begin with our Spectacular Start. This brings the stimulus to life for the students, and whether it be through a visit to the Natural History Museum, or a trip to Bletchley Park, they can begin to bring their own personal exploration of the topic to life.
Students are not limited to the extent to which they can research, nor are they limited to the ‘theme’ of the term. We encourage students to use the theme simply as a stimulus, and from this they have created some phenomenal pieces.
