Personalized Learning, Everywhere at BISC Lincoln Park

Written by Nicola Sargeant, Year 1 Leader

Personalized learning for me is something that is evident here at BISC Lincoln Park in every interaction we have with our students, whether that's teaching whole classes, working independently on a differentiated task, or even in the simplest interactions with the children in the hallways or on the playground.

For me, as a Year 1 teacher, it is especially important to provide children with a safe, comfortable transition from their setting in the Foundation Stage where children learn through hands on, child-initiated activities to the more formal expectations of Key Stage 1.  The Year 1 classrooms at BISC Lincoln Park are set up with each child's need in mind with role play and small-world areas to inspire imaginative stories and language, construction and play dough to perfectly hone those fine motor skills as well as a wide range of other play activities to support the children with the move into structured, independent learning. 

As a Foundation Stage practitioner, this is something that I am very passionate about. Here at BISC Lincoln Park we have the support from the Senior Leadership Team to do what we know is the right thing for our children with the freedom to take risks to develop all of our students into confident, independent learners.
