We are a school that is excited by change and love learning about new things, so every year, the class names are changed and we choose an inspiring and creative theme.

The school year starts with a whole school cross curricular mini project where we learn more about our chosen person and produce work to share and display around the school. So far our themes have been; artists with links to the French speaking world, to help us to understand more about French culture; artists from cities that have hosted the Olympic Games; architects of iconic buildings in London; textile and fashion designers who have had an impact on the way we live and dress, Philosophers and Great Thinkers, Human Right Activists

This year our theme is 'People whose ideas, inventions and innovations have helped to make this world a better place.'
