In order to add greater depth to a creative curriculum, elements of our curriculum design encourage children to participate in inquiry based projects that work towards the larger goal of answering a central question, solving a problem or meeting a challenge.
The purpose of such activities is for pupils to:
Engage in a rigorous, extended process of inquiry focused on complex authentic questions and problems
Work as independently from the teacher as possible, and have some degree of “voice and choice”
Demonstrate in-depth understanding of academic knowledge and skills
Build 21st century skills such as collaboration, critical thinking and communication
