Every four weeks our children begin a new 'learning journey'. Every 'learning journey' begins with a wonderful book. These books are carefully chosen to engage and motivate, to inspire an challenge; to widen horizons and bring experiences to our children that they would not otherwise have and to introduce them to the music of wonderful language.
The books cover a wide range of authors, genres, periods in which they are written and set and social contexts.
Once the daily maths lesson is finished, 'learning journey' time begins and flows through much of the day. Carefully and thoughtfully planned learning sequences ensure continuity and progression so that all subjects are very well taught. This is important; we hope that some of our children will go on to become historians, geographers, artists, designers, engineers......The themes and subjects are covered in blocks of time; our children may spend whole days engaged in art work, whole days writing..... everything gets finished and is well presented in a 'learning journey' log - a new one for each journey.
Visits 'out' and visitors 'in' support and enrich the learning.
