Our Year 5 pupils welcomed students from Langley Senior School Sixth Form for a series of masterclasses held at the Taverham Hall site. The aim of this alternative curriculum day is to deliver a range of experiences to expand our pupils’ skills and interests. For the Sixth Formers it is an opportunity to have a taste of teaching for the day, enhancing their leadership and presentation skills.
Over the course of the day, our pupils were able to take part in three options from a programme of 12 exciting sessions, planned and run by the Sixth Form students.
The sessions included:
Spanish – Introduction to Spanish
Photography – Shutter speed lights
Music – Get creative with song writing
Drama – Physical theatre workshop
Psychology – Lego modeling for psychological concepts
Business – Who can make the best product?
Science – Out of this world experiments
ICT – Get technical
Art – Get printing
Sport – Sports from around the world
German – Basic introduction to German
Law and debating – Argue your way to victory
