Project Based Learning
What is Project Based Learning?
‘Let all that you do be done in Love’ 1 Corinthians 16:14
The example of Jesus Christ and the Good news that he brings inspire St George’s school to be a place of hope and a caring and inclusive community in which we all love to learn and learn to love
Work that matters – Project-based learning
‘Teachers are the designers of learning who create the conditions for the students to conduct their own enquiries and advisers to whom learners can come as they create their product.’
(Work that matters - The teacher’s guide to project-based learning)
Project Based Learning is a dynamic approach to teaching in which children explore real-life problems and challenges, developing 21st Century skills, whilst working in small collaborative groups. At St George’s we feel that this is an exciting and challenging approach and supports the curriculum that we aim to provide for our children providing them with real and purposeful experiences and opportunities as part of their learning journeys. It allows the children to use their imagination and creativity and to use their skills of enquiry to solve real life problems. The following information gives a brief overview of the key factors involved in the planning and delivery of project based learning.
