Making learning fun

Happy children engaged in memorable learning experiences – that’s the goal for which the team at Brockton C of E Primary School strive. The school’s dedicated staff, beautiful rural setting and diverse curriculum all motivate children to become active, confident learners.

Experiences such as a recent Egyptian workshop delivered to Class 2 by the Living History Hub capture children’s imaginations and harness natural inquisitiveness to bring greater depth across the curriculum. The children delighted in learning how strong an egg is stood on its end – strong enough to stand on, it seems! Highlights included decorating masks with gold leaf, making paper, and making a platform by stacking cups. Children were challenged to move large blocks using minimal equipment to simulate how the Egyptians used five-tonne granite blocks. Brockton’s students quickly realised that good communication and team work were essential in completing this challenge.

Fascinating facts about living in ancient Egypt fuelled further investigation, with one child reporting, “My favourite part of the day was all of it! My mum says I’m not allowed to stand on eggs at home… I’ll find another way to prove how strong they are!”

With the expert guidance of teaching and learning team, activities will be applied comprehensively across the curriculum in the coming months, equipping children with vital skills to succeed within education and beyond.
