We achieve this through well chosen curriculum visits, workshops and topic related days. Examples of these trips include visits to the Ashmolean Museum, Science and Imperial War Museums as well as British Museum. Where possible, and practical, we use public transport to travel to London. We also personally invite visitors to the school – for example, authors, artists, parents, sports people and even mayors!
Every summer we hold curriculum enrichment week. This provides an opportunity for our children to participate in enterprise, cultural, sport and art activities. Special themes for the day include Environment Day and Diversity day. These enable students to learn thoroughly and actively through a theme.
Our Year 3 pupils take part in Forest School and Mini Enterprise activities. Forest School, run by Mr Jack Gocher, offers our learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in the school's woodland and natural environment. Our yearly Enterprise activities, helps our Year 6 pupils to develop their business and entrepreneurial skills and prepare them for life as adults.
Our musicians take part in regular events. Each summer we hold a music soiree, where our pupils showcase their talents. These range from solo clarinets and guitarists, pianist, singers and keyboard players. This event is very popular and warmly received by all parents and carers.
Thanks to our Sports Partnership with Dr Challoner's School, our pupils take part in many competitive sporting events. These range from tennis, football, basketball competitions as well as swimming galas and cheer-leading. Additionally, our pupils are encouraged to run daily, doing " The Daily Mile."
The school provides many extra-curricular clubs, some run buy the class teachers and some by outside providers. Our clubs range from cross country, gardening, mindfulness, football and drawing to name just a few.
Our pupils support many charities and hold regular (always initiated by children) charity events, where children usually make, bake and sell cakes and crafts. Money raised is distributed between charities of children' choice.
