At Gonville Academy, we believe that all children have the right to a broad and balanced curriculum that enables them to develop both as a collaborative team member as well as an independent thinker. Discovery promotes an approach to the wider curriculum where children are immersed within a selection of different subjects in a creative, hands-on and engaging style. This allows them to integrate knowledge into larger concepts. Subjects are taught in a way that allows children to delve deep into the knowledge and understanding suitable for their age range. Additionally, it allows our proactive learners to critically think and reflect on their learning whilst developing the skills necessary to grow into enthusiastic, aspiring and proud citizens of our community. Through Discovery, we also promote an understanding of historical and current global issues in a critical way, enabling our pupils to develop a voice to be heard
Children demonstrate their build-up of knowledge through a Creative Learning Journal, pre and post topic quizzes and through a piece of applied writing during each half term which showcases their learning.
