Our teaching staff get to know their students and figure out the unique ways in which they learn best. Perhaps one child learns through practical engagement and activities, whilst another learns in a predominantly auditory or visual way. At a school with larger class sizes, they may be swept along with the masses, struggling with a syllabus that prioritises those that learn exclusively through reading textbooks, and wondering why things seem more difficult for them.
At Burton Hathow, we do things differently. There’s no blanket syllabus; no repetitive, basic teaching framework.
Our children don’t sit in a classroom and copy the same phrases out of the same text books that have been used as standard for all the children that came before them. Our children don’t sit and struggle, wishing their teacher would provide something more engaging as they learn best through interaction. Our children don’t sit quietly by the side-lines as the louder ones in a huge class of 30+ dominate the conversation. We do things differently.
