REAL is rigorous, engaging, authentic learning and is our exciting, unique, innovative and ‘award winning’ project based learning curriculum for KS3. REAL is an amalgamation of our humanities subjects, History, Geography and EPRE along with increasingly important literacy and digital literacy skills. The aim of our REAL curriculum is to immerse our students in our 6 character traits through their participation in at least 3 key projects throughout they year, each of which contains significant content based around a driving question and will incorporate the humanities’ subjects skills and the reading of a novel, an anthology of stories or biographical text. All of our projects will have an end product which will require our students to present in some form to an authentic audience. Through this linked, enquiry based learning approach and the process of critique and re-draft, our students develop their skills in communication, creativity, critical thinking and communication, digital literacy and quality writing.
