Pre-Prep Theme Week and Prep School Enrichment Week October 2015

20 Oct 2015

I owe a huge thanks to both the children and staff for their commitment to, and engagement with both our Theme and Enrichment Week.  It has been filled with learning well and truly beyond the classroom and the normal curriculum.  Throughout the week, every pupil from Reception to Year 8 had the opportunity to be a part of an investigation to ‘enrich’ and ‘deepen’ their learning, whether this was in the classroom or out on a trip. 

There was a marvellous ‘buzz’ about the children.  They were very keen to share with me what they had learnt while out on a school trip or following an interesting investigation undertaken in the classroom. 

The week culminated in a visit from the Happy Puzzle Company who is well known for their brain teaser problems which encourage logical thinking and often require plenty of teamwork to reach a solution. 

I hope the images accompanying this article offer a flavour of the week and how much the children enjoyed engaging in the various investigations or trips.

I am sure the children are already looking forward to the Lent term Theme / Enrichment Week.
