Welcome to the Wider Curriculum at Edgar Stammers Primary Academy.
We are very fortunate at Edgar Stammers to have large school grounds and we take great pride in our school environment. We value the benefits of outdoor learning and how it is a stimulant for exploration and experimentation through hands-on, real life experiences.
We are constantly developing areas in school to attract wildlife for the children to engage with by planting shrubs and trees as well as nurturing planters and our enhancing our nature area.
Our children are taught to value the outdoor area and become responsible citizens through general duties, including litter picking, composting, maintaining growing areas, taking care of the natural habitats and caring for the animals that live on the school grounds. This is done through our Gardening Group, our Eco School Group and our Woodland Adventure Groups.
Our Reception and Nursery children engage with forest school activities through ‘Muddy Mondays’ and visiting Forest Schools in the local area.
A further opportunity for learning is provided by an outstanding specialist Music Teacher, who visits us twice a week. This has allowed our pupils to learn a variety of instruments from drums to keyboards and then perform in front of large audiences. One of the highlights of the week is singing practice, where they learn a plethora of themed songs, which usually lead up to a rehearsed concert either in school or at an organised event. Since we have been able to offer this additional learning, our pupils’ confidence has grown and their enjoyment of music is enhanced.
