Learning and teaching

At Aspen Heights British School, we believe learning is maximised when children understand why they are learning a skill or concept, and how this can be applied in the real world.

The National Curriculum for England supports this. Within this, students direct their own learning through collaborative group problem solving. This enables them to apply their skills and knowledge in a meaningful context, facilitating the development of essential critical thinking and communication skills. Such powerful learning empowers the children to take greater responsibility for the outcomes of a task and facilitates positive group dynamics. In addition, it is fun- which makes all learning more effective!
