In KS2 Fridays are different! Outdoor games, French and music are taught each week, but the rest of the timetable is flexible: an exciting and stimulating range of activities provide enjoyable and enriching experiences for our children. The following examples give a small snapshot of the sorts of activities undertaken on a Friday: building and launching chemical rockets, drama workshops related to curriculum topics ( Macbeth, Life on the home front during World War 2 etc.) cooking, dance (e.g. ballroom, street)art activities including creating a whole school mosaic, cross stitch, knitting, team building exercises, philosophy, debating, touch typing, film making
We are a “singing school” and children sing in class every day.
Whole School assembly takes place weekly on Wednesday at 2.45pm.
