Teaching and Learning

Our subjects deserve to be passed on to all students, and our students deserve to learn this wonderful knowledge. Through curriculum and effective teaching and learning, we build and treasure.

At JFS, the teaching and learning principles for embedding the curriculum can be conceived through effectively incorporating five main strands:

  • Setting a high level of challenge
  • Sequencing concepts and modelling
  • Questioning and feedback
  • Stages of deliberate practice
  • Enabling time for reviewing the material and embedding ideas for Retrieval Practice

These strands have brilliant clarity and simplicity and the potential to support our students as they work to achieve outstanding outcomes and engage with the world around them.
