We try to involve our community in our learning as much as possible and enjoy every opportunity we can to get people in or get out and about! Exciting learning experiences have included those items below but there are many other events that have taken place too.
We take our children on trips to places of worship from a variety of religions and welcome visitors in to share their cultural differences and similarities with us.
We have a group of Key Stage Two pupils who call themselves the Junior Playground Reps. They have organised many events at Bredon Playing Fields and work hard to promote the link between our children and facilities in the village.
Our eco-club members have recently made a video (with minimal input from staff!) about littering for Wychavon District Council's Anti-littering Campaign. They were entered into a competition where they won £150 for school! They enjoyed a very special afternoon at a recycling plant having afternoon tea and collecting their prize!
We are very proud to have a link with Mchikichini A Primary School in Morogoro, Tanzania. This link has been going for 4 years now and we have enjoyed reciprocal visits annually. The children love to meet the Tanzanian teachers and tell them about their lives and education but they equally love to hear about life in Tanzania and how it compares to theirs. The teachers learn a great deal about teaching and learning, and the children learn about culture and global issues.
Singing and dancing with the Luncheon Club!
Our Y5 children held a War Time Tea Party for the older generation of our village community. The children had learned popular songs and dances from the time to share with their visitors. They made the tea time treats too, using wartime recipes and ingredients! Very tasty actually! They also sang Christmas songs at their Christmas Lunch too!
All our children enjoyed time doing mini-beast hunts, observational drawing and nature trails as well as activities that allowed the children to experience the space and facilities that the playing fields has to offer. They loved it and have asked if they can go back and use the pitches and sporting facilities next time!
Our Year 5 children went to Birmingham in December to sing with more than 5000 other school children from the Midlands region. They practised lots of popular songs from the playlist and were thrilled to be part of suggest an exciting and special event and they absolutely sang their hearts out! We always enjoy this event and the experience is one that the children will always remember!
A week of exciting and creative opportunities across the curriculum that made our children think about what it is to be British! The children enjoyed many dance and art activities that challenged them to think about how diverse modern British culture is, compared to how it has been historically.
Having been involved in a beautiful Harvest Festival Celebration at St. Giles Church, the children and staff were delighted to be able to share the edited highlights with grandparents and visitors from the village who were able to enjoy tea and cake while they watched! We have held a Harvest Tea for the older generations in our community every year for many years now and it is something we find especially rewarding.
In January, Class 2 were lucky enough to have a visit from a real fire fighter! It was important for us to learn about this important issue from sombody who is a real expert. We were taught how to make ourselves and family members safe in the event of a fire. Below you can even see us practising some of these vital skills. Here we are practising our STOP, DROP and ROLL. Thank you for your vist to Bredon Hancock's First School. We can all stay happy and safe thanks to you!
