Our Learning

Team Raysfield believe that all learning should be purposeful and include authentic experiences to enable children to deepen their understanding through the exploration of BIG questions and the development of curiosity!

We are most proud of the new way we are teaching our foundation subjects, with the introduction of the Project-Based Learning approach.  We divide our year into three: Discover (history based themes) EXPLORE (Science based themes) CREATE (Art based themes). These themes provide the main drives for projects, and although all subjects are taught throughout year, giving a specific focus allows our teachers to explore subjects at a greater depth.

We passionately believe in using high quality books for all our English lessons, starting new units of work with highly engaging events to stimulate interest and motivation for our young people. Our maths curriculum is equally stimulating with specific time built in to exploring concepts, not just learn written methods.

In addition to this, we use the JIGSAW resource to help us teach pupils about the development of themselves as people. This personal and social education programme is new to our school (September 2019) and an incredibly important element to supporting our young people to make positive life choices.
