At various points in the school year, we have a curriculum focus week when the spotlight falls on a particular subject, or area of the curriculum. We explore one aspect of the subject in depth, for example for our PSHE Week we explored Fair Trade as a theme: visiting local supermarkets, inviting speakers into school,designing tee-shirts with a fair trade message and selling fair trade items in the school tuck shop.
In the Spring Term we held a Science Week and most recently, in the week of Shakespeare's birthday, we explored his life and work for English Curriculum week.
Nursery pupils drew fairies, while Year 2 recited witches incantations from "The Scottish Play" Insults were hurled in Shakespearean fashion and boys donned dresses to perform "Pyramus and Thisbe" from A Midsummer Night's Dream.
In the second half of the Summer Term we have enjoyed an Art Focus week with a theme of The Environment. A mermaid, surely an integral part of the Cornish environment, has appeared outside the ICT suite and various surf and sea related design projects are underway.
