We are currently reviewing our Curriculum and look forward to sharing with you as soon as possible. In the meantime if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school office on 01643 841 462.
In all areas of the curriculum, we aim to engage, motivate and stretch each child. We do this by providing stimulating lessons that are purposeful, enjoyable and responsive to each child. Whenever possible, the children are active in their learning and we aim to give a wide range of real experiences to broaden the children’s thinking.
Sharing ideas is a core part of the learning process for all ages and the children are involved in questioning, explaining their observations and discussions with their peers and teachers. We encourage our pupils to use their imaginations and to ‘have a go’. We believe that being self-reliant and flexible in their thinking will be a lifelong asset.
Topics for the Summer term include:
Judaism, including making comparisons with Christianity
Thursday 13th June - Class 2 enjoyed a wonderful day with local poet, Mr Jelley. Below are some of the poems written today.
I wouldn't kiss a stinging nettles' petal
I wouldn't drink from the bubbling muddy stream
I wouldn't eat the prancing dancing foxglove
I wouldn't sleep upon a prickly bed of brambles
Nor lick the foot of the spiral hypnotising snail
But I would stick goose grass to your tail
And shake the damp rain soaked branches
So the drips will fall down your smooth neck
The Foxgloves Brutal Beauty
The deadly but beautiful foxglove
Swirling in a whirlwind
I wouldn't kiss a foxgloves purple glove
I wouldn't savage a nettles' poisonous petal
But the hoarding beetle chomps heartily on through the sting
The bonker-conker coloured snail with pre-licked chocolate shell
And bright slimy foot, on doc top sits
With shell like a twisted up walking stick
Rain making the leaves dance
Water angry flushes
Pigeons cabbage cough
The downward heart wrenching flow of the slipping sliding traversing bedrock river steps
Skitting through the muddy water
Down the tunnel of trees, we flow
