To support our formal curriculum and the delivery of the national curriculum through the PYP framework, we also enjoy themed events to promote areas that maybe not covered fully in your child’s formal education.
Our themes to enjoy this year are:
Roald Dahl Day – enjoying literacy and the love of reading.
Academy Council – promoting democracy and the voting process. Building confidence in public speaking
Black History Month – creating an awareness of how Carribean and African communities have impacted our past and future generations. Promoting cultural diversity and celebration of black culture
World Mental Health Day – helping to raise awareness for children and their families the importance of well being and mental health support.
Anti Bullying Week – Promoting positive attitudes and kindness to others. Ensuring children know there is no place for bullying
Road Safety – Ensuring your child has the awareness and skills to keep safe on increasingly busy roads
Promoting Parliament week – ensuring your every child has an understanding of British democracy and their role within it.
Celebrating cultural celebrations – Christian celebrations such as Easter and Christmas, Diwali – Festival of Light, Chinese New Year and other key cultural celebrations will be covered to promote tolerance and cultural diversity.
Recycling Week – Exploring our planet and how we can have a real impact on saving the planet.
Fairtrade Fortnight – Children will understand the importance of fair trade and consumer choices. Being able to make informed decisions as they move into adulthood.
