Learning in Depth
At Bluecoat Primary School, our pupils follow a broad programme of study designed to maximise creativity, critical and collaborative thinking, global awareness, and depth of learning. One feature of our rich and diverse educational experience is the Learning in Depth (LiD) programme which has been rolled out across Chapter Three. (Find out more about LiD here)
Where it started for Bluecoat
LiD started in January of 2015 at Bluecoat with a group of twenty pupils in Year 5. It was a big success. At the end of that year we reflected on student learning—especially what we learned of student knowledge and progress through their “video diaries” and online portfolios. We decided to offer LiD to all pupils in Year 5 and 6 starting in the Autumn of 2016. Now there are more than 160 children participating in LiD.
