As an Independent School, we have increased flexibility with our curriculum content and are able to extend this in ways that we feel will inspire and motivate learning. Within our Prep School, this term we have therefore introduced our new “Our World” project based and child led immersive humanities curriculum. Each year group has chosen a new “Our world” topic and have blended History, Geography, Art and English learning objectives to create a presentation that they shared with their parents, grandparents and each other at a Global Perspectives Exhibition on Friday 9 2022.

The children thoroughly enjoyed sharing their learning about Greece, Kenya, Victorian England, Italy and the Romans, Scandinavia and the Vikings and the British Empire and it was clear that they had all spent a lot of time researching their topics. Much of the learning has been driven by the children themselves, strengthening their collaborative and communication skills as well as their knowledge.
