Our Curriculum…
ENGAGE
The aim is to get children excited by the project and give them lots of
memorable and exciting learning experiences to build upon. This may
involve special days, trips, visitors, lots of practical work and exploration.
DEVELOP
Children learn the skills that they need using ICT, Art, DT, Music. This may
be by researching, investigating, collecting information and recording
ideas in a variety of different ways.
INNOVATE
Children work independently to create something after being set a
challenge. For example, they plan and organise events, produce
outcomes to share their learning, etc.
EXPRESS
This is the presenting and evaluating stage. This could involve an art
gallery, website, debate, etc. (usually involving an audience, so be
prepared for lots of invitations into school).
