Pre-pandemic we had developed strong curriculum links with our primaries as we shared resources, provided taster sessions and collaborated in the professional development of our teachers. This week, Etone has had the joy of opening its doors, once again, to some of our primary feeder schools in the Nuneaton area.
In the last couple of weeks, we have been delighted to welcome pupils in Year 5 from: Chetwynd Junior, Queens C of E, Wembrook Primary and St Nicholas C of E. The pupils have enjoyed taking part in some really interactive sessions including:
- Harry Potter Chemistry workshop including exploding Elephants Toothpaste
- Mastering Gaming where pupils have created their own playable games using Kodu
- Ultimate Frisbee – taking part in the number 1 University Sport 2021
- Curling – emulating the success of the Winter Team GB
- Wizarding Word – mastering IT skills that really impress
- Taster sessions in German and French learning how to greet each other and say our colours and numbers
All pupils have really enjoyed their days and were extremely excited to collect their certificates at the end of the sessions to evidence that fantastic work they have completed.
The primary curriculum transition is something we are incredibly proud of as we share expertise and resources with our colleagues in primary schools, get to know our potential pupils and reduce the anxiety that pupils at primary feel when they are faced with moving up to secondary.
We look forward to working more with our current primaries in the future and developing relationships with more as we work to ensure that all of our pupils achieve their full progress potential.
