Independent Learning/Projects

As a school we are taking a blended approach to students learning, supporting those in school and those isolating at home. Supporting students at home can be particularly challenging and should they finish any work early they can start on some independent work to improve their understanding of a subject.

Here is a guide for students to create their own project, we appreciate that students may have seen something on TV or through their home learning that has piqued their interest; encouraging your children to explore this further is the perfect independent task, this guide helps to structure their research "Universal Project Guide".
