Colour My World
"Colouring my world" works on Each colour representing a single aspect of learning. Viz a viz Red for passion, orange for food (because orange is a homonym for fruit) , yellow represented sunlight and so we used this colour to illustrate climate. Green for the environment, Blue of course is music (the blues) Indigo symbolised the arts and violet (purple) the roman colour of nobility is for historical heroes. This allows us to link sport, heritage, science, music, the arts, the environment and cuisine into a single common project. Crucially the colours combine to create white light and this is symbolic of the full spectrum of disciplines needed to create a rounded education.

The project content encourages teachers to help students find appropriate paths of instruction and to guiding them into becoming independent learners and to be able to develop their ability to evaluate their own progress. It demands active learning by providing activities which require students to ask questions and to find answers through teamwork. It requires students to take ownership of their education inside and outside the classroom. It focuses on key competences as outlined by the DLL and generating confidences with these. The international collaboration within the partnership aims to provide a lifelong model for learning.
