The summer term is looking great at Ashtead Pre-Prep with some brilliant activities and events planned. Some of these will take place here at school whilst there will be others that take our learning further afield.
The curriculum topics this term are all about ‘Our World’. The older children will be investigating and finding out about life cycles and plant life while the younger children will be taking a tour around the world. The school’s STEAM approach to learning will be evident for all to see in these topics as the children delve into their problem solving activities, applying and testing their knowledge and skills.
A ‘Get Active’ week is coming up in May where the focus for learning will teach the children all about keeping their bodies and minds healthy. A skipping day, a ‘scootathon’ and a Golden Boot challenge are just some of the activities that have been planned.
Also, this coming half term we are celebrating our wonderful year so far by inviting everyone to a STEAM Open Afternoon at the school on Saturday 11 May. All the classrooms will be open and full of work with photographs on display, spanning the year. In addition to this, Genie Lab will be running workshops where everyone will have the opportunity to become involved. I do hope that you will be able to come along and join in with the fun.
