We were involved in helping the Inspire team to produce planning for mixed age classes.
The Inspire Curriculum is made up of 54 themed units, 9 for each year group. Each unit will be taught over about 4 weeks and will cross subjects so that children can transfer their learning from one subject to another.
The Inspire curriculum is committed to:
On a Wednesday afternoons the Junior children are fortunate to be able to take part in some super music lessons. They are divided into 3 different groups and receive samba drumming, violin and cello, and singing tuition. Each term the children have the opportunity to perform the pieces they have learnt at our music assembly.
The school also takes part in all of the local sporting festivals and runs some events here at the school for other local schools.
Each year all our children from Year 1 upwards enjoy taking part in a residential. This is a very valuable part of the children’s learning. The younger children take part in activities and sleep in the Community Hall; the KS2 children are offered the opportunity to go further afield to places such as Dartmoor and this year the Year 5/6 children will be taking part in a residential trip to Bristol.
