Active Learning Week

Active learning is a form of learning in which teaching strives to involve students in the learning process more directly than in other methods. 

This is a process that has student learning at its centre. Active learning focuses on how students learn, not just on what they learn. Students are encouraged to ‘think hard’, rather than passively receive information from the teacher.

At St Michael's we are currently looking to transform our curriculum to ensure that our children flourish and become independent learners - this has always been our aim, but using strategies such as active learning we hope our children will develop life long skills, become critical thinkers and simply enjoy a love of learning.

Our children are the heart-beat of our school family and have right to an exciting, dynamic and inspirational education so as a school we are working hard to find a curriculum that not only enables our children to achieve academic excellence, but also allows them to thrive and flourish as individuals, in order to prepare them for the next stage of their educational career. 

Over the coming weeks and months we will be working hard behind the scenes to develop and organise a new curriculum to be proud of and look forward to sharing our vision with the school community and all stakeholders - WATCH THIS SPACE.
