The Applecroft Adventure

The Applecroft Adventure:


The Applecroft Adventure was introduced in September 2019 having been created by all staff and children during the 2018-2019 academic year. The Learning Council worked with their individual classes to identify the life experiences that we believe ALL children should have the opportunity to take part in. Each member of the Learning Council brought their class's list and work began to identify a whole school 'adventure'.

More recently, these activities have been incorporated into the planned curriculum of various subject to ensure they are at the heart of our broad and balanced curriculum.
