What Happens When Second Graders Own Their Timetable

Everyday the Year 3 (2nd Grade) pupils at Rosendale Primary School in London negotiate their day.

Since September 2011 NoTosh has been working with the teachers at Rosendale Primary School. One of the key elements that emerged was how their innovative child centred curriculum was restricted by the traditional notion of the timetable. So we helped them re-design it, handing over the control to the 8 and 9 year olds.

Attendees will:
- See an overview of the project and how it fits into ongoing Design Thinking work
- Explore the curriculum model that puts the pupil at the centre of learning
- Review their own timetable to reveal questions and challenges - and surface the traditional blocks in the way
- Take away a new perspective on what teachers or school has control over
- Hear the views of pupils and staff who are innovating in this way in their classes
- Have time to reflect on their own practice and what it would take to change
