Event: Learning without Lessons
Course Leader: Chris Quigley
Audience: KS1 & 2 Teachers and Leaders
Course outline: ‘Pupils should study fewer things in greater depth’
That’s the aim of the new curriculum. But count the bullet points in maths alone and what seems like a good idea becomes a major challenge.
SAVE UP TO ONE THIRD OF CURRICULUM TIME with this brand new, exciting course by Chris Quigley:
Learning without lessons.
The new national Curriculum has a core principle: children should study fewer things in greater depth.
However, it doesn’t feel that way, especially when looking at the maths and English curricula. The programmes of study run into thousands of aspects, leaving many asking, ‘How do we even get through the content, never mind going deep?’
There is a solution: Learning without Lessons.
This new and exciting course by Chris Quigley has been described as ‘A learning revolution’, and ‘a chance to make the curriculum both manageable and magnificent.’
A vast amount of the National Curriculum can be more effectively learned without lessons.
- Continuous Provision in primary classrooms can be curated to provide ongoing opportunities for children to learn
- Conscious Connections can be crafted so that several aspects of the curriculum can be learned at the same time
- Longitudinal learning can be designed to allow children to ‘take their time’ to learn the things that matter.
Chris will show you how learning can thrive and teachers can survive the demands of the curriculum without having to deliver every aspect as a lesson.
Chris will share his ideas for learning without lessons throughout the curriculum. He will show you examples of how:
- To cut your maths lessons by 1/3
- That composition objectives can be learned through other areas of learning
- Geographical knowledge can be best gained over time
- The computing curriculum can become intertwined with the maths curriculum
- Science challenges can be ongoing and evolving
- DT products can be developed and enhanced over time
- History can be revisited throughout a key sage to gain a developmental understanding of key events
- Art and Design projects can be the basis for research and writing
- Languages can be learned through ongoing emersion
- Music can be part of every day learning
- PSHE and Learning Behaviours can be embedded explicitly into every single day.
