About the Course
Children love doing projects, that’s a fact. Invigorating projects generate enthusiasm, they energise the children and unleash creativity, cooperation, communication and critical thinking skills as they engage the chosen themes, delve deeper into learning, generate, create and showcase their finished projects.
Through cross-curricular projects, teachers are championing a hands-on, active, research driven, designing and making approach to curriculum. Some of our scoped-out projects include:
- The hedgerow project
- Poetry slam
- Puppet theatre week
…… and 96 more!
