Our Wider Curriculum

Curriculum Events

History Experience Days

At the end of our history learning journeys, children take part in a History Experience Day, where they are provided with a chance to apply the historical knowledge they have learnt in a fun and exciting way.

Exploration Days

Each term, we provide children with the opportunity to explore a range of activities that are additional to their curriculum learning. Children choose which activities they would like to experience and spend a full day exploring and building skills. Activities range from making bug hotels to learning basic ukulele skills to candle making.
