Top Learning Project
Teaching Open Places
Interlevel learning in the British School is an important step forward in the development of new educational trends.
Learning with peers of different ages improves disruptive and logical thinking, boosts self-esteem and communication, and promotes socio-affective development and attention to diversity.
At the British School of Aragon we are at the forefront of education and our vision is to be a European reference in the educational sector in the application of advanced methodologies, learning spaces and in the transfer of knowledge to society.
1ST AND 2ND YEAR OF PRIMARY SCHOOL
The 1st and 2nd Primary classrooms, 300 square metres in size, are the basis of our TOP LEARNING project.
We understand that formal learning environments have to be updated and transformed, being a faithful reflection of the needs that companies ask of us, where the human factor is the engine of great ideas, friendly and motivating environments where projects can be drawn on walls and glass, anywhere and at any time.
At the British School of Aragon, we support our methodology with these open, glazed and versatile spaces, endorsed by the thesis of neuroarchitecture which indicates the importance of learning spaces and furniture to facilitate creativity.
TOP LEARNING involves an inter-level work with pupils of 6 and 7 years old sharing spaces and contents that takes place in the 1st and 2nd year of primary school, where the pupils generate the working hypotheses to face the challenge of the project, sharing ideas, evaluating and contrasting information and ending with the presentation of the project to their classmates and teachers. In short, learning with classmates of different ages improves disruptive and logical thinking, boosts self-esteem and communication, promotes socio-affective development and attention to diversity by not establishing a standard level for everyone, but rather a learning framework with different levels in which some help others.
