Four Year Rolling Programme

As part of our four year rolling programme, each new theme is introduced with an 'entry point day'; an integrated curriculum day which allows the children to start the topic with a 'bang' and gain an overview of the theme they are about to cover. This can involve children dressing up as part of role play, engaging in a range of curricular activities and working as part of their mixed year group house teams.
WWII Entry-Point Day
For our World War 2 day, the children had to come to school dressed as an evacuee. Amongst the staff were ARP wardens, Wrens and land girls.
Children completed activities including: a singing master class of the classics of the time; a D.T lesson constructing their own Anderson Shelters; an interactive session about 'The Battle of Britain' including role play and a cookery class using only ration-friendly ingredients.
Key Stage 1 had great fun creating 'Blitz' art work and partaking in role play.  We were also lucky enough to investigate first hand, an American jeep from the war.
Flambards Trip
Thanks to generous funding from Friends of Kea School, Years 1-6 were fortunate enough to attend a whole school trip to Flambards.  It was an amazing day. During the morning session, children were introduced to a wealth of information and experiences guided by teachers and a tailored quiz sheet linked to the artefacts and displays. The children were moved by the bombing recreation in particular, and had the opportunity to build upon the knowledge they had gained during the 'entry point day'. During the afternoon, the children enjoyed all the other fantastic activities, Flambards had to offer. The wonderful behaviour and team work showed by all perfectly demonstrated what is special about our school.
