At John Ball we want children to explore their creativity in all aspects of learning; home learn-ing should be no different. With this in mind, we are delighted to introduce ‘Creative Learning Projects’. Creative learning projects will support the curriculum being taught in class and offer children the opportunity to deepen and extend their learning. These projects sit within our homelearning policy and remain optional for all children.Each half term, children will be set a question to explore. They can provide an answer to the question in ANY way they wish. There is no wrong answer!

There are some ideas here of ways children might respond.



As always, John Ball will provide support and help for children and families who wish to access this. In the first instance, please speak to your child’s class teacher.

Example creative learning projects can be found below.
