INSPIRE sessions - 2016-2017 STEM (Science technology, Engineering and Mathematics) focussed

We plan in at least 1 INSPIRE session per class each academic year. During INSPIRE sessions it is our aim that each child has a designated adult with them. This can be Mum , Dad, Nan, Granddad, Auntie, Uncle or a designated friend of the family to work with their child. Each year group sets a task and they have the designated session to complete it. During the year 2016-2017 INSPIRE sessions are STEM ( Science technology, Engineering and Mathematics) focussed.

Workshops for forest school happen throughout the school year. Mrs Cole and Mrs Godfrey, our Forest School Leaders, Talk to parents about the benefits of learning outside the classroom and how forest school develops new skills that perhaps inside the classroom we would find difficult to teach i.e. den building!
