The Accelerated Learning Cycle, based on the work of Alastair Smith, is applied in all lessons. It stems from the idea of a supportive and challenging learning environment. The cycle has active engagement through multi-sensory learning, encourages the demonstrating understanding of learning in a variety of ways and the consolidation of knowing.
Within a lesson a new skill is introduced, our pupils have the time to practise this skill and then apply the skill to a game situation. This builds on the gather, skills, apply approach and delivery of lessons is taken across school to ensure our pupils develop a deep understanding of specific skills and are able to apply these in a range of situations.
