Chapel Break Infant School

Real Projects

Our Chapel Break Curiosity Curriculum is based on the principles of 'Real Projects'

REAL stands for Rigorous, Engaging, Authentic Learning.  The principles are:

  • Significant academic content taken from the primary domain (e.g. science) with natural and relevant links made to other curriculum areas exploited to enrich and deepen learning
  • Fully integrated English (reading, writing, speaking and listening)
  • Planned opportunities to explore the philosophical themes emerging from the content
  • A commitment to multiple drafting and critique
  • Student-crafted final outcomes that reflect authentic ‘thinking and doing’ (e.g. working as scientists)
  • Rich first hand experiences to deepen engagement, understanding and enjoyment
  • Innovative planning and authentic assessment developed with expert partners
  • A termly public exhibition, showcase or performance where every child is represented
  • Authentic audiences
