Transcript of WSI 13/09
BGE review: Period allocation for some subjects was changed together with the content of some S1 courses.
There is no timetable provision made for IDL in the new S1 curriculum as it is felt that it should be embedded within the curriculum so anything that is brought in has to be merged within the existing timetable structure.
The WG looked at natural links occurring and we were able to draw one main theme: Survival.
We have been working on a proposal. The proposal is for a whole school event which would be held in the beginning of May, spread over 1 week. Pupils would be taught skills throughout the year and they would then complete an end project based on the theme of Survival (of a natural disaster). The current suggestion is "Hurricanes"
The idea is that pupils will use the skills they have developed over the year in a new context, so it should not be contrived.
Skills learnt throughout the year should be challenged and developed using an unfamiliar context; it should not be a copy of previous work. Some Faculties may choose to assess pupils on the activities completed over the week.
Now that the theme has been established, the group feels that the whole staff should be involved and working together in the planning of this for it to be a success to our pupils.
“Students will explore and examine different aspects of survival and the interrelation among all facets of the Survival theme.
Adolescents growing up in the 21st century likely take their survival for granted.
Therefore, the overarching goal is for students to gain a basic understanding of the factors that contribute to human survival, such as teamwork, adaptation and physical fitness; but also for students to be able to apply these concepts to their own lives in 2016.”
