As Head of Grimsdell it is my great pleasure to write my first blog for the launch of our brand new Grimsdell website. Each week I look forward to being able to share some of the wonderful learning experiences the children have had and the highlights of the week from my perspective as Head.
Over the summer holidays our teaching staff have been busy redesigning their classroom environments in order to maximise both the practical and creative use of space. The whole school has also been transformed to represent our new whole school theme, which remains a surprise for our pupils until they arrive back at school on Thursday 7th September! This marks the start of the creative curriculum we are launching at Grimsdell for 2017, combining academic rigour with 21st century skills. Our children will be immersed in meaningful learning adventures – driven forward by high quality texts and stories that enable them to develop key skills in independence, creativity, teamwork, leadership and resilience. Our children already love coming to school and this child-centred approach to learning will certainly put an extra spring in their step as they skip into school each morning.
I look forward to unveiling our first theme in next week’s blog!
