In the Resource Base we operate a special interest curriculum because we acknowledge that everyone learns best in the context of their own interests. So, when we are choosing texts for learning about writing or Science we consider an individuals interest. For example, if a pupil is interested in dinosaurs and fossils then we can tailor the activities to include researching, writing and math solving around dinosaurs.
Each Friday one pupil chooses the weeks interest based on their chosen topic. This gives one pupil the attention of all their peers for one special day and all learning activities are based on this particular interest. It's our favourite time of the week!
Thus far this term we have learnt about football, animals, ants and France/Japan.
We gets lots of compliments about our great work which you can see when you enter our school.
