Welcome to Our School
Kew Gardens Inspire Year 7
Despite unpredictable weather our Year 7 students recently experienced the full splendour of Kew Gardens as part of their Key Stage 3 studies. The trip was organised for the whole year group who were split, half visiting on consecutive days.
As part of the Key Stage 3 curriculum, students are expected to gather research to support classroom project work and this trip provided the opportunity for our students to undertake work from Art, D&T and Geography for a cross curricular project. It is important to be given the opportunity to experience learning and research opportunities outside the school environment and our students enjoyed their day out and collected a wealth of material for future use. Their behaviour was impeccable on both days making it worthy of comment by their teachers.
