The children enjoy a wide range of experiences within our themed curriculum which enhances their learning and develops their skills.
Making the most of the gorgeous Spring weather this week several classes have been taking their learning outside. Reception have been exploring in the Copse, Year 1 have been inventing and planting potatoes, Year 2 had a PE coach to develop their ball skills, Year 3 painted their volcanos, Year 4 enjoyed developing their calculation skills using the playground number square, Year 6 created personification poems and finally Year 5 and 6 worked together to improve their French through reading books and playing language games. It's been wonderful to see so many different subjects taught outside throughout the week.
Last week each class in KS2 represented a country and focused on song/dance and music from that country and in the afternoon they put on a ‘Grand Opening Ceremony’ which they presented to the rest of the school. Chloe in Year 6 said “I really enjoyed the music day because I liked learning about different types of music from other countries and playing new instruments. I especially liked the song waltzing Matilda which comes from Australia. All of the classes were really good but my favourite was the Chinese dragon dance.”
