Head’s Blog – 8th October 2021
We have been celebrating this week as it was National Poetry Day. All of our children have been learning poems to recite and perform. This is in keeping with our curriculum driver of “Communicating Confidently” . Some even went home and wrote their own poem, which I find incredible as another one of our drivers is to be life long learners – I have no doubt that some of our children will have their writing published in the future.
Willow class have had a mini adventure and visited St. Peter’s church, with Chris Young, to learn about Baptism and what it means within Christianity. We find that experiencing adventures really helps children to learn as they are able to build on these when trying to accommodate new learning.
There has been lots of creativity in school this week, whether it has been in class writing and performing poetry, at art club becoming a super hero or at home being inspired by our Roman topic. Yet more evidence of how our Curriculum is designed to meet our vision.
