We have designed a Discovery Curriculum that is exciting and fun and promotes children’s interest for it is only then that deeper learning takes place. Our curriculum engages children’s imaginative and curiosity, so they are naturally wanting to investigate and discover more. We provide opportunities for all the children to build resilience and perseverance with the learning challenges we give them, which all have a focus of active learning.
Through our curriculum, all children experience an exciting launch of each topic, during the topic they are taught and develop the skills and knowledge they need then towards the end the children apply their new and skills in a project which builds their entrepreneurial skills. The final stage of each topic involves an opportunity for children to reflect on and evaluate their learning in a presentation to parents, their peers or the local community. We ensure that all children have access to this challenging and exciting curriculum regardless of ability or need.
