Deep Learning

What and Why

Deep learning is our new and innovative approach to learning in KS3.

Our aim is to create a learning identity which is unlike anywhere else. We want to challenge our KS3 students to ‘think hard’ in every lesson, become independent and feel better prepared for the challenges of the new educational landscape.

How

As a school we are working to amend and adapt lessons so that all students in KS3 become fully immersed in deep learning. We are consistently using higher order thinking skills to encourage students to become confident, inquisitive and resilient. Some examples of the types of skills and questions students have been using in KS3 lessons are shown below:

Skills - These form the basis of all KS3 lessons

APPLY ANALYSE EVALUATE CREATE
Solve Determine Compare Subdivide Conclude Measure Design Produce
Modify Demonstrate Categorise Question Grade Convince Plan Imagine
Relate Teach Select Test Select Decide Invent Solve
Predict Group Rank Devise Justify Recommend Construct Arrange
Develop   Criticise   Debate   Modify  

 

Questions - Students are regularly prompted to ask and answer these questions

APPLY ANALYSE EVALUATE CREATE
How would you change or modify? What conclusions can you draw? Is there a better solution or alternative? Can you create a solution?
What other way could you plan to… What’s the main idea? What changes would you recommend? What would happen if?
What do you think would happen next? Which is the most or least important? What do you think about… How many ways can you…
Can you group by characteristics? What are other possible outcomes? How would you grade this? How would you improve this?
Use examples to explain… Discuss the pros and cons… What is more important? Propose an alternative…

 

Deep Learning Tasks

We would like parents and carers to get involved in deep learning by completing out of school tasks with our students. These are tasks are not homework and do not need to be handed in to anyone. Deep learning tasks can be downloaded via the links below; they are not extensive and quite often require a discussion based around the topic, questions or activity provided. Deep learning tasks will be posted online on a regular basis and parents will receive a text message to inform them of when a new task is available to download.

We hope you can appreciate the potential benefit and positive impact deep learning will have on your child’s progress. If you have any questions or you would like to visit the school and see deep learning in action please contact Mr P Grills
