During 21-22, We enjoyed a variety of Enriching Experiences that included, STEM, Mental Health and Wellbeing, Aspirations, Enterprise and Sports. 

Enterprise Week

In June we held our first Enterprise Week. Children from Y1 to Y6 worked in mixed aged teams  to complete the following challenge…

Teams completed market research, created product designs and prototypes, a logo and an advert. The week culminated in a showcase of stalls in the school hall. Family/friends joined our Enterprise Market and bought the products that most appealed to them.

Our teams raised over £450 for school and the winning team are now deciding how to spend this money to further enhance our MHWB offer in school.

Stem Week

In the Autumn term, Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths was the focus as we held our STEM week. Childrne were engaged in experiments, maths hunts, design challenges and projects, developing their enquiry skills across the curriculum.

Aspiration Week

In the spring term, we welcomed a range of professionals into school to help our children understand the world of work and the opportunities that are available to them. We were delighted to have sessions with the Police, the Fire Service, a solicitor, an outdoor education specialist, a nurse a make up artist and a professional footballer. 

In addition, all our childrne from YU2-Y6 were taught emergency first aid by Flat Stan, giving them an invaluable life skill.  

 

Platinum Jubilee

In the summer of 2022, we joined the rest of the UK in celebrating Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee. Children across school were immersed in activities to develop their understanding of The Royal Family and the role of a Monarch. We also came together to create a whole school piece of artwork to commemorate the occasion.
