Every school is seeking to address the challenge of delivering an increasingly personalised learning experience to its students, but despite intensive national debate on the subject, there is still a lot of confusion about what Personalised Learning really means in practice, what its implications are for school organisation and operation, and what its impact on standards might be. The Creative Learning journey is playing a leading role in developing approaches that help school leaders and designers to turn high-level aspirations and visions into practical and sustainable solutions.
The Creative Learning Journey is an innovative purposeful curriculum for all Primary Schools, designed to enable schools to develop an original exciting and creative curriculum to re-ignite children's learning.
We focus on a combination of personal learning skills and knowledge for children combined with innovative and exciting ways to learn with on-line resources, Thematic Wheels, School Planning, Pupil Assessment that will help schools to map out their own imaginative curriculum, identify individual skills, create cross curricular links, plan and assess in detail to deliver a valuable personalised curriculum to meet individual, school and community needs.
The integrated topic wheels bring the progression skills and National Curriculum into the weekly, monthly and half term plans allowing ownership and cohesion of your school’s curriculum. The ability to share and view topic wheels with CLJ schools throughout the UK and Worldwide, a complete library of activities and resources for all CLJ schools.
The weekly and half termly plans help you follow through pupil progression to the Assessment Manager all levelled to national curriculum levels and sub levelled with red amber and green. Giving you a target setting matrix and record keeping print outs for each child.
These resources have not only been designed with children in mind. Teachers need help too; it directly supports teachers by providing comprehensive and rigorous teaching frameworks with cross referencing of CLJ learning skills to the National Curriculum. These allow teachers to deliver an exciting, imaginative curriculum allowing them to develop the children’s enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge, with more time to focus on developing creative learning experiences for children as less time has to be spent on lesson planning.
The Creative Learning Journey gives schools the confidence to take a more thematic approach to their curriculum with the rigour focused on the development of learning skills. With the added value of developing personal and social skills, allowing for collaborative work; allowing children to help each other to learn and to work together to refine and develop their ideas.
The curriculum is a suggested framework of half termly topic wheels to support teachers, which covers each primary school year group fully mapped to the national curriculum requirements leaving you with peace of mind over statutory coverage. It provides a solution that is ready made but flexible and adaptable to meet the needs and contexts of your school and learners.
By not being prescriptive, and the ideas not having to be slavishly followed, the topic wheels provide comprehensive medium term plans from which teachers can draw their short term plans. Schools are encouraged to take ownership of the curriculum over time by developing it further to suit their particular pupils' needs and school context.
"The CLJ fits so well, that we know we are still providing the National Curriculum. But the CLJ is so much more than just a curriculum; it gets children motivated and excited in learning, it provides a very strong focus, it relates to the learning needs of every child."
All updates to the CLJ and any changes resulting from the National Curriculum review will be free for subscribers.
All of the above resulting in the provision of a 21st century curriculum for 21st century learners with the capacity to enable the issues around personalised learning to be met at all levels.
