Curriculum enhancement workshops


At Someries Infant School and Early Childhood Education Centre, we pride ourselves on offering a world-class curriculum. Our Immersive Learning Centre enables us to ‘take’ your child to previously impossible places in their learning; from an enchanted forest to a tiger-dwelling jungle to being chased by Vikings or swimming with dolphins!

However, to further enhance our engaging and dynamic curriculum, we utilise enhancements which often take the form of visits from high-quality educational providers who enable our pupils to learn new skills and experience new things.

These workshops also enable us to provide a range of contexts for pupils to apply taught vocabulary which corresponds to our Prime Learning Challenge curriculum.

Previous curriculum enhancements have included visits from an avian expert who provided high-quality and engaging workshops about birds of prey. This aided our Year Two pupils’ study of nocturnal animals as part of their Prime Learning Challenge ‘Why was the owl afraid of the dark?’

Our Reception pupils also engage with British Woodland Animal workshops to support their learning as part of their Prime Learning Challenge ‘What is in the woods?’. During a hands-on experience with some woodland animals which are unique to Britain, pupils are able to apply previously taught vocabulary in a new and engaging way. This included words such as claws, talons, spines and scales in context!

These memorable experiences enable learning across Someries Infant School and Early Childhood Education Centre to be immersive and experience-driven.

As part of our World Book Day celebrations, we received a visit from a well-known storyteller and drama practitioner who led story-telling workshops across the school to promote a love of reading and demonstrate how stories can transport us to far-away places.

Our pupils were immersed in the stories and engaged with his enigmatic brand of story telling. Through discussions, our pupils explored the various texts to discover the morals of stories and how they affect us.
