At Bligh, we take a practical approach to learning. We believe that children learn best when they are actively involved. Activities such as problem solving and investigations follow this principle. This kind of learning helps our children to think clearer, to raise questions, try out new ideas and to remember their findings. It helps build independence and also make learning engaging (and FUN!).
Our thematic curriculum enriches the learning experience through excellent resources, displays and quality text. Relevant cross-curriculum links are encouraged. Quality first teaching and differentiation ensure all children are challenged at their correct level, by catering for different learning styles we are fully inclusive in our classroom practice. Manipulatives are used frequently to support learning.
Our teachers follow the principles set out on ‘Understanding how we learn’ as part of the school's improvement cycle.
