Project Journeys

Each project is divided into clear learning focuses. The children know the journey they are going to make during the project and they can see it build up as the project progresses.

The children are fully involved in this process and it helps them to understand the learning journey and the progress they are making.

It also provides a support for remembering previous learning to be able to apply in the final project as well as make links across the curriculum. 


This is an example of how a learning journey may be structured





Children's project books are the real showcase of how learning journeys are built up.

Here is an example
