Students leading the teaching…
For the uninitiated, Ingenium is our innovative GCSE option where students take the opportunity to work in small groups to study a subject outside of our usual GCSE curriculum. In year 10 we have students studying Ancient History, Photography, Psychology and Sociology as a part of their Ingenium option. As well as following the GCSE syllabus, we have a particular focus on a wide range of skills and character traits.
This week, each Year 10 Ingenium student has taken a theme from their GCSE syllabus to teach their fellow students. This has helped them to deepen their knowledge of a particular topic, reflect on the characteristics of best lessons and effective learners and develop their oracy, presentation and communication skills.
In addition, they have reported that this activity has helped them reflect on and develop character traits that include empathy, organisation, self discipline, creativity, confidence, curiosity, self control and charisma.
