Throughout the week, the whole school have been engaging in fully cross-curricular learning, focused on our theme of Polar Explorers and have produced amazing outcomes. They have loved the practical, enquiry based approach to their learning and being fully immersed within the theme.
Along with visits from STEM ambassador, Jo Fox, who introduced the project and led workshops in Lego robotics; and Amy, an animal expert from Wild Science, who introduced the younger children to a range of animals and developed their understanding of food chains and habitats, the children have also taken part in numerous practical investigations, which have been central to their learning.
On Friday we celebrated the end of Science Week with a showcase of the children's learning through the week. In addition to Trust executives, we were also joined by Maria Elsam and Caroline Thomas, both senior lecturers in Primary Science at Canterbury Christ Church University. Both Maria and Caroline were extremely impressed with the children. Maria stated:
“The children were keen to share their learning and very proud of their own achievements. This was really positive on two counts, in that it illustrated their engagement with the teaching and learning whilst also showing a real depth of understanding.”
This is an amazing achievement and a reflection of the children's hard work and enthusiasm throughout the week. Thank you to all the parents who also came to celebrate with their children after school.
