Project Based Learning

What is PBL?

PBL stands for Project Based Learning! Every term, the teachers plan an exciting project which is based on a question. For example, "How can we explore Mars?"

These projects are:

  • Based on authentic, real world enquiry
  • We make links with the community and ‘professional’ experts
  • Work is in depth, based around an essential question
  • Outcomes are expected to be the highest standard
  • Progression of skills is tracked and monitored via a rubric, which children stuck in their books
  • All final outcomes are exhibited and friends and family are invited to see the amazing work children have done!
