We have embraced the principles of Immersive project-based learning at Ladock School providing a creative, inclusive and challenging curriculum which inspires and motivates children and supports high quality learning.
Starting from the child
We start planning projects from the interests of our children and then design learning opportunities that are relevant and engaging and have real world outcomes. Teachers then plan the outcomes ensuring they always start with the children at the heart of the planning and then what will excite and motivate children in class.
Our classrooms are created each term to enable children to be fully immersed in their project. You will see tables and chairs but also a rich and exciting learning environment.
With REAL projects children develop skills and knowledge through work focused on answering an essential question. The projects must be ‘Rigorous’, be shared with ‘Authentic’ audiences, ‘Engaging’ and the children must ‘Learn’ throughout.
Challenge based learningChildren are given challenges and they then apply their skills and make choices to solve the problems. Children work together to solve real world problems which are relevant and engaging. These challenges develop knowledge, understanding, problem solving and collaborative skills
