The aim of the Independent Learning Project (ILP) is to give our children opportunities to acquire knowledge for themselves; have a choice in what they learn; and develop their oracy skills. These aims underpin the Learning Powers we use in school and, as a Rights Respecting school, ensure our children are able to build their confidence in order to make informed decisions. The ILP helps our children to become resourceful, resilient, reflective learners by giving them opportunities to develop and hone the skills and attitudes they need in order to be successful, independent learners. The ILP requires the children to ask questions and identify useful sources of information (these may be provided in KS1); to read to ‘find out’; to plan and manage their time; and to develop their oracy skills thinking about how they will present their learning to an audience and how they can make their presentation engaging. The children will complete one ILP per term in KS2, one per year in Year 1 summer term and two per year for Year 2, with a different subject focus each time. The children will be encouraged to vary how they present their learning each time. The culmination of the children’s learning will be shared at the end of the project with children presenting their work to the rest of the class.
