What is project work?

At Woodlands we take inspiration from colleagues working in pre-school settings in Reggio Emilia in Italy. We aim to bring this inspiration to our curriculum and everyday practice. The city of Reggio Emilia is recognised worldwide for its innovative approach to education which many pre-school programmes around the world have tried to emulate.

Our daily project work provides a rich context for children working within mixed learning groups to communicate and share what they discover and know. Working in this way allows children to work collaboratively and develop the idea that together, they can achieve more than if we work on our own.

This year our project work is based around children’s ideas and theories about ‘creatures that move’.

We do hope that you enjoy reading about the project your child is involved in. Please take some time to look at the Project Journals within the unit.
