Pedagogical Principles

Pedagogy/Curriculum axis

In teaching our Curious Curriculum, teachers will need to draw upon a wide teaching repertoire of styles. It will be essential that teachers understand the best way for learners to acquire certain aspects of the curriculum. Whilst teaching our thematic enquiry-led curriculum, we expect teachers to use an appropriate range and combination of:

  • Direct Instruction
  • Teacher Exposition
  • Problem Solving
  • Purposeful Practice
  • Discovery

This is where the curriculum and pedagogy meet and appropriate teaching styles are crucial for learners to truly acquire new learning and embed this into their long-term memory.
