Teaching and Learning

Our lesson design model represents our approach to teaching and learning at Hollingwood Primary School. Informed by Sweller's Cognitive Load Theory and Rosenshine's Principles of Instruction, we reactivate our children's existing knowledge before teaching new granular knowledge. This is a standardised approach that is evident in all lessons, in all classrooms, from EYFS to Year 6. The journey of the canal boat reflects local significance in history.
