We endeavour to widen the experience of the children we teach. Whenever possible, subject to the availability of staff expertise, we try to provide the opportunity to acquire new skills and interests.
Special events are often held within school. The theme of the events vary – sometimes it can be to support a particular project or learning priority or to mark a special occasion or national celebration.
Visits from and visitors to school are frequently arranged for the children, in the course of class work. These vary from class to class and from year to year.
Year 6 children are given opportunities to go on a residential visit and also to take part in a variety of activities and experiences. This gives the children firsthand experience of other people and places. We spend a few days away at the Diocesan Retreat Centre at Myddelton Grange and also have a day of adventurous activities.
The aim of the day was to offer Year 5 a sample of the opportunities available at St Thomas á Becket School. They were taken on a tour by pupil guides and they experienced actual lessons, which included:
Design and Technology
Everyone agreed that it was a brilliant day.
A big thank you to Mr Rooney and all his staff who made us all feel welcome.
