Off Plan Weeks

'Off Plan' weeks are blocks of time; usually at the beginning or end of a term, during which teachers can explore broader aspects of the curriculum and explore new, exciting and bold strategies for learning. These are often seasonally themed; Christmas, Sports week etc., but are usually given a vague outline within which teaching teams can 'go wild'.

Themes this year include:

  • Authors 4-9-23 (Linked to class names)
  • Careers and Aspirations 16-10-23 (Meeting People, Making Goals)
  • Take One Picture with a Poem 30-10-23 (Art and Creative Writing)
  • Light and Sound 13-12-23 (Science)
  • Famous People 25-3-24 (across cultures and across time)
