‘Every student can learn, just not on the same day, or the same way.’ –George Evans
Some of our leavers and those who would be in traditional year 6, have been testing themselves with, marking themselves against and then setting up timetables for revision against entrance exam, 11 plus and SATS papers. We tap into EDPLACE to help the children check themselves against the standards expected of children in the mainstream and the children have access to Word, Excel and Powerpoint to type up or present what they are working on, where appropriate
Otherwise, the children use the Montessori materials and hands on learning to support understanding, working individually or in small, mixed aged groups.
‘Expecting all children the same age to learn from the same materials is like expecting all children the same age to wear the same size clothing.’ –Madeline Hunter
