Our Enrichment Curriculum 

Spring  Term 2022

Global Citizenship 

Throughout the Spring Term, our topic based learning ha been driven by Geography and to further develop on this, our whole school project has been around Global Citizenship and what it means to be a Global Citizen.  At the start of the term, in our assembly we discussed what this is and each class was given a special project, linked to their topic work to explore and find out about, for example; Year 2 were learning about conservation of endangered species linked to their work on Mexico and found out about a special project at Chester Zoo to conserve an endangered species of Salamander, Year 4 were learning more about Global Warming linked to their work on the America's and how activists such as Greta Thunberg are making a difference and Year 5 thought about the work Malala Yousafzai, who campaigned for human rights in Earthquake ravaged Pakistan at just 13 years old, linked to their work on Natural Disasters.  Everybody worked hard to learn more how THEY can make a positive and what they might do to become a better Global Citizen now and in the future. #WillowparkWonderful 

 

Autumn Term  - 2021

Black History

Throughout the Month of October, we have been learning about Black History Month across our school.  We have held assemblies, both whole school and in our classes to learn about significant black figures both from the past and in the present day.

Each class across school was then asked to focus on one of these individuals, to learn lots about them and then present what they had learned  to the rest of school in a series of special assemblies.  Each class was creative, showed intrigue and interest in their learning and was celebratory in their presentations.  Fantastic effort Willowpark! #WillowparkWonderful

        

  

 

Autumn Term 2 -2021

Disability Awareness

 

Throughout Autumn term 2, we have been learning about Disabilities within our enrichment curriculum. We have thought about the types of disabilities that a person can have - some can be seen as they are a physical disability but some are also unseen and you may not know someone has a disability just by looking at them.

We have shared examples of disability in our assemblies and some children (and staff) who have a disability were really brave and spoke to us all about how they are affected by their disabilities. 

We have looked at a variety of famous people, including TV presenters, sports people and Scientists who have a range of disabilities.

Year 2 thought about Alex Scott, a female professional footballer and TV presenter who has recently shared her struggles with her Mental Health. 

Year 4  have been finding out about the Scientist Stephen Hawking and his medical condition that caused him to become disabled.

Year 6 thought about their role and responsibilities in response to their relationships and behaviour towards someone with a disability.  They each wrote a pledge about how this will influence their behaviour and how they will treat everyone as equals now and in the future.

 

Autumn term - Cultural Art project: Chinese Art/Culture 

Our Pupils have completed their first cultural art project based on Chinese Art and Design.  We learned about the themes and colours commonly used within Chinese Art & Design work.  We have really enjoyed learning about another cultural by exploring their artwork and can't wait for our next project.
