Creative Learning Spaces
Teachers at GEMS Jumeirah Primary School know that all children learn differently and different learning experiences suit different learning spaces. The aim is to provide children with a range of Creative Learning Spaces across school to suit all learning styles and needs.
Creative Learning Spaces give students a choice in what kind of learning space works best for them, helps them to work collaboratively, communicate and engage in critical thinking

Children are empowered to make their own choices about how they best learn
Learning spaces at Jumeirah Primary School are carefully designed and closely monitored to maximise effectiveness of learning. Teachers think deeply about the way their learners learn and they empower children to make their own choices. This leads to students being more engaged and involved.
