Life-Based Learning channels all subject learning through its nine life themes for children between the ages of 5 to 11. One of the life themes is the introduction to the concept and practise of pupils growing up to be participating members of the community in proactive ways.
It is a concept given, as yet, only token practice by schools. The question is, ‘What constitutes genuine practice?’
Well, there is an example I came across on the internet – a superb example.
“The ‘Standing Ovation Project’ works with schools to raise self-esteem and confidence of children through the creative arts. In 2017, it won Outstanding Contribution to Local Community at the Education Awards in association with Birmingham City University.”
I am not sure how active the project is in the current circumstances, but that does not detract from its description of how it has worked and can work.
