    Does anybody use? Just wondering what it's like - looked at their website but was wondering if anyone had anything?

    Sounds fab...I could absolutely see me (us cos my partner teacher would as well) using it for a week project once each half term or similar and then yes maybe, if it worked well, the last half term of the year.

    What do I need besides what is on the website? (Other than a way to persuade my HT that I need to go from Oxfordshire to Suffolk for a weekend!)
     
  3. Don't try and tackle the whole lot at once!
    *** is comprised of three elements:
    Dramatic Inquiry (children IMAGINE they are in various situations, they do not PRETEND)
    Inquiry Based Learning and
    *** as a system
    Its definitely worth beginning by looking at dramatic inquiry or inquiry (task based learning) first.
    If you have that pretty well sorted then begin with introducing *** noting that whilst the children will be behaving "as if" in a company (with a client and commission) they can also imagine they are a wide range of other people and situations that they may be exploring. The company is there to drive the work forward in a purposeful manner.
    I hope that helps!
    The more planning you read the clearer it will become but small steps at first as it is a pedagogy so there are lots of stages to it.
    Hope that helps a bit!
    Good luck!!
