From time to time we like to change our normal timetable and have a week to focus on one aspect of the curriculum. During a theme week we might have a range of visitors in school to talk to children in an assembly or to run workshops. We might also have a special sharing assembly.
Here is a look back at some of our past Theme Weeks
British Science Week 2020
We enjoyed celebrating Science Day on Friday 13th March. Children explored the theme of ‘Solving the problems of tomorrow in our diverse planet’ which is linked to our Erasmus project Respect, Re-use and Recycle. We were extremely lucky to have specialist Science lessons taught by Mr Richards and Mrs Bubyer who are both parents at our school and also Science teachers at Somervale and Ralph Allen. Early Years and KS1 children loved exploring circuits and creating mini explosions with coca cola and mentos! KS2 enjoyed investigating solar cells and factors that effect cell performance.
World Book Day 2020
This year St Julian’s children marked World Book Day in style. Not only did everyone come to school dressed as their favourite book character, but children returned to school in the evening for two special events. Key Stage 2 children hosted a poetry slam in the hall whilst Key Stage 1 children snuggled up with their teddies for bedtime stories.
Single Use Plastic is not so Fantastic!!
We have been waging a war on single use plastics. We are trying not to have them at school and have tackled Sainsbury’s about what they are doing to help our environment.
