What’s new key stage 3/4?

';

In support of the well-being curriculum, young people in Key Stage 3 (Group W) recently visited Greenmeadow Community Farm to get stuck in with some farming activities and to meet the many animals on the farm.

 

Greenmeadow farm has been a working farm for over 250 years, and Headlands pupils were able to get up close with a wide range of pedigree and rare breed animals, as well as the usual cows, sheep and pigs.  They were also treated to a demonstration of milking and even had a go themselves.

Headlands pupils were recently treated to a “Live Music Now” session, performed by Katie’s Allsorts Trio.  The initiative  seeks to engage children and young people in music sessions.

with a view to improving learning, social and personal development skills.  This is achieved through

  • Exploring and expressing feelings non-verbally, developing conversational skills.
  • Improving mood; developing life skills such as turn-taking, collaborating, teamwork; increasing social interaction and self-confidence.
  • Improving concentration, memory and developing creativity.
  • Encouraging intentional movement, developing motor skills.

The sessions offer a unique means of self-expression and engagement, and  Live Music Now will shortly be starting a residency project at the school involving pupils from across the Key Stages.
