Case Study - Park View School | Award Nomination 2016

Kim Brown, LSA/ITT
Park View School
 
Practice:
Kim has shown an ability to innovatively design learning experiences for a group of young people who might otherwise have been disengaged. At the heart of her plans was to make literacy and numeracy more engaging. The children have engaged with mindfulness and projects of their own choosing, for example creating a charity event that benefits the local community and creating resources about endangered animals. On Thursday mornings the group usually goes down to the local park and read Roald Dahl short stories, with the aim of making reading more interesting and fun for the students.
 
Impact:
Essentially, project lessons encourage learners to share their options, thoughts and feelings and take responsibilities for the work that they create. This has allowed some students who would be quite disengaged to take ownership over their work and freely express their creativity. The lessons have therefore made a remarkable difference in how students at Park View School approach project work. For example, changing the setting in which children normally read has helped to break down students’ barriers to learning and has made it even more enjoyable.
