At Bluebell Meadow we are passionate about learning in meaningful contexts. We aim to give our pupils the most rigorous, ambitious and fast paced teaching in literacy and numeracy so that they can draw on core skills and apply them with confidence and accuracy across the curriculum.
We strive to challenge our pupils in every curriculum area so that their experience is broad and balanced. Equally important is the development of more profound learning behaviours. We want our pupils to ask their own questions about the world and pursue independent research, to challenge preconceptions and develop empathy, to create and respond to creativity. We aim to grow resilient learners, full of self-belief and with respect for others.
In the Early Years Foundation Stage there is a balance of child-initiated and adult-led learning. Short themes give pupils the opportunity to learn more about the world around them through enhanced supported play provision and a rich programme of adult-led, practical and creative activities.
Key Stage One
In Key Stage One half termly challenges provide the framework for cross-curricular learning. Pupils are supported to achieve real and meaningful goals with a learning scaffold. For example they cook meals for the whole school, organise and run a museum and design and build go-karts for a race.
Key Stage Two
In Key Stage Two pupils apply core skills and develop their understanding of more challenging concepts through projects based on The Mantle of the Expert model. This approach gives pupils the chance to marshal and apply their skills to solve complex problems in hypothetical situations. For example they plan how to run a medical centre to meet the needs of a community, organise a wildlife park, investigate an archaeological dig and examine the impact of the Olympics on the Brazilian favelas.
