Essential Questions

Each termly project is based around an essential question that is broad in scope and timeless in nature for example, "What is Justice?"

Children are supported to think beyond their immediate surroundings, form their own opinions and change their mind in light of research and reflection.  Children will gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to these complex questions.


A question is essential when it:

  • Causes genuine and relevant enquiry into big ideas
  • Provokes deep thought through lively discussion and sustained enquiry
  • Requires children to consider alternatives, weigh evidence and support their ideas
  • Sparks meaningful connections with prior learning and personal experiences
