REAL Projects Term1
WHAT ARE THE REAL PROJECT
RIGOROUS * ENGAGING * AUTHENTIC * LEARNING
REAL Projects is a design for learning that connects deep subject content, from a variety of subjects, with real world problem solving. Each REAL Project aims to make learning authentic, whilst enabling the students to create extraordinary work that matters.
So far, our over-arching themes have been, ‘GET PHYSICAL’ and ’GRAND DESIGNS!’
This year, we have studied the human body and created a training booklet for the KS3 teachers, so they could take part in the lunacy run. The KS3 teachers appealed for help from the students - we had become very unfit over the 6 weeks holidays!
(See the Gallery at bottom of page for more examples of work.)
REAL Projects Term2
In term 2, we stuck with the ‘GET PHYSICAL’ theme and researched into the 2016, RIO Olympics. The KS3 department converted in ‘Athena News Room’, which acted as a base for our reporting upon the controversial issues that arose during the Olympics. We ended the project by creating a news report using green screen technology.
