As part of our commitment to our core values of ‘creativity’, ‘friendship’ and ‘teamwork’ we are proud of this innovative way of delivering part of our curriculum. Every two weeks, pupils will experience activities in each year group from Years 1 through to 6 in this exciting way – Ex- days!
These fortnightly activity days are a creative way of enabling our children to experience their studies in a really active and dynamic way; they experience extra special activities to enrich and enhance their curriculum.
We have named these ‘ex days’ as their focus can be on any of the following ….. expeditions, exercise, exciting adventures, expressive arts, experiential learning, exploring the wider world, becoming an expert, carrying out experiments, or extending existing studies, skills and interests.
Our ex team, who carefully plan and prepare these days have really enjoyed delivering these activities across the school and have loved the feedback from our pupils.
Mrs Venton and Mrs Nancarrow will use this area of our website to share some of the outcomes from these days… keep coming back to see what we’ve been up to!
