Project Curiosity: a home-learning project at BVIS

Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning. William Arthur Ward (American writer 1921-1994)

Explorers, inventors and change-makers all need a good dose of curiosity to inspire them and launch them on their learning journey. And curiosity, which begins with an awareness that there are things we don’t know, is what we aim to nurture in our students through “Project Curiosity”.

So, what is Project Curiosity?


Project Curiosity was launched at BVIS in 2018 and this year we have been delighted to see an even wider range of topics; greater parent engagement and a significant increase in the quality of the children’s outcomes.

The two key goals of Project Curiosity are:

  1. For home and school to work together to encourage children to become intellectually curious learners
  2. Children to learn whilst having fun in pursuing an interest of their own choice.

As well as providing a meaningful context for parents to spend time with their children, Project Curiosity can also help children develop the following skills:

  • Decision making
  • Problem-solving
  • Research
  • Critical thinking
  • Creativity
  • Time management
  • Responsibility

Project Curiosity requires a step-by-step approach for a successful home-learning project. The 5 ‘D’s below help explain this process:


What is the role of parents in Project Curiosity?


Imagine a car and think of the child having control of the steering wheel whilst the parent accompanies their child on their journey in the passenger seat. So, during the initial stages of Project Curiosity, parents play a key role by being co-interested and co-curious, asking key questions and encouraging their child in their learning. Keep in mind what the famous film maker, Walt Disney said:

Curiosity…It keeps us moving forward, exploring, experimenting, opening new doors.

At the final stages of Project Curiosity, parents help by supporting their child during their presentation. In Years 1 – 3, this takes the form of a “Show and Tell” session either at the beginning or end of the school day. Projects this year have ranged from pandas, oceans, and dinosaurs to a clock invention, model kite and products made from recycled materials.

In Years 4 – 6, the children present their projects during our special “Showcase” event. Project Curiosity Showcase 2019 was held on Tuesday 15th October with a buzz of excitement on the second floor as the children delivered their learning to parents, staff and other students. Projects included: animals, countries, sports, food, technology, art and books.

Thank you to all our parents for their support and active involvement in Project Curiosity 2019. We hope you enjoyed learning alongside your child and can see the benefits for your child through this approach to home-learning.
