At Brooke Primary Academy, the personal development of each and every child is extremely important to us. We have designed our curriculum to provide memorable and inspirational experiences for the children. Our curriculum extends beyond the classroom; we offer opportunities for our children after school, during school holidays and at weekends; experiences that develop the whole child and which they will remember for years to come.
A sample of what we offer is listed below.
During KS2, each child will have the opportunity to attend a residential or activity day. The experience develops the whole child, focusing on developing our Brooke values. The activities provide opportunities for the children to work together, developing confidence, resilience and perseverance. We have carefully selected the locations of the activities to further support our academic curriculum, including venues in the local area and other partrs of the UK
Year 3 – 1 day team building activities at Go Ape
Year 4 – 2 day, 1 night outdoor adventure and camping at Austerfield / Castleton
Year 5 – 1 night camping / sleepover at The deep (Hull)
Year 6 – 3 day, 2 night outdoor adventure and camping at PGL Lincolnshire / London City break
The Values Compass
At Brooke Primary Academy, in collaboration with our children and parents and as part of our bespoke curriculum, we provide opportunities for our children to develop essential skills and engage in ‘memory making’ experiences, linked to our 6 school values.
Each ‘opportunity’ helps to develop our Academy values, providing key life skills and above all, ensure that our pupils look back on their learning journey with pride and fondness.
