Asking the Big Questions
At Rolls Crescent we are preparing today's children for tomorrow's world, we want to make learning irresistible and ensure that all children achieve their very best. To help us realise this goal we organise the children’s learning into purposeful and exciting “Big Questions”. This approach allows children to acquire and embed a range of skills across the curriculum areas but through one motivating topic.
Examples of our “Big Questions” are:
‘What is beyond our world?’
‘Is Magic Real?’
‘Does the punishment always fit the crime?’
‘Would you like to be a Pharoah?’
‘Who were the Mayans and why do we know so little about them?’
Our team of talented staff carefully plan each “Big Question” to target the skills that are required to be covered under the new national curriculum. There is good communication between Year groups to ensure that themes remain diverse, and balanced. This means that the foundation subjects (Art, Design, Computing, History and Geography) are all taught in a relevant way which appeals to young minds.
