Do you ever question the relevance of what your child is learning in the classroom? Do you feel as though they are side-lining your child’s interests and maximum learning potential?
Several years ago when a proficiency in mathematics led favorably and surely to a job in finance, this may not have been true. However, while mathematics and other subjects traditionally taught on the curriculum, – such as English, Science and Geography – still open certain doors, it is important to recognise that, in light of social advances and astronomical advances in technology, there are now many doors that the traditional curriculum does not open. While we are not proposing these subjects are in any means redundant, modern thought is now geared towards exploring these subjects through purpose based learning so that every lesson has a goal.
In this way, you can hope to never hear your child ask the age old question “When will we ever use this in real life?” With summer coming up, many parents are keen for their children to spend their time productively. However, the holidays are intended to function as a break from school and classroom based learning, and so they should be. Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean that they can’t and shouldn’t also be educational. Summer provides a priceless opportunity to engage with new learnings, inspire new possibilities and enthuse your child’s interests. Therefore, instead of enlisting in the everyday sports camps and coding and creative writing workshops, why not utilize summer as a means for your child to self-discover? Stimulating your child’s curiosities and loves facilitates self-driven learning and allows them to envision their own place in the future and then pursue it. That your child will prove more likely to excel in areas in which they are passionate and enthusiastic goes without mentioning but in an ever-expanding job market
