PBL

It’s been wonderful to see many of our parents at school this week.

PBL always has a BIG celebration at the conclusion, when students share their learning with you!!

We are very proud of our students and their learning in PBL.

 

PBL is implemented across the whole school.  It is an integrated approach to learning.

It involves students :

·        Learning about their World

·        Learning to work with others

·        Having some choice in the learning

·        Learning how to be a good learner

·        Researching to find answers to any questions they have

·        Answering some driving PBL questions

·        Asking their own questions and searching for the answers

·        Using technology to help them learn

If you have any questions about PBL please ask your child’s class teacher or better still, ask your child. Also, take a look in the gallery of photos of the day.

Project Base Learning Celebrations

Our children have been working very hard in PBL (Project Based Learning).They answered some essential teacher questions and then they searched for the answers to their own questions.

For many weeks they worked hard and learnt a great deal.

They’ve also been talking about how to be a good learner, how to work with others and how manage their own learning.

 

Next week the children would like to present their learning to you.

Please come and celebrate lots and lots of learning.
