Hawthorn Class - Mrs Pardoe & Mr Evans

Our new context for learning this term is 'Innovation Generation'. There will be lots of exciting learning opportunities. For example, to bring the curriculum to life, pupils have found their classrooms littered with plastic pollution, inspiring them to become ethically informed citizens to find out more about the issues caused by plastic.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

In the following weeks, the pupils will be provided with opportunities to experience:      

  • Undertaking independent projects based on the circular economy e.g. eco art installations or products for enterprise and judging.
