The Aspiration Group is a ‘higher order thinking skills’ group which runs in school to challenge children’s knowledge, skills and awareness of different abstract and worldly concepts. We look at issues around ecosystems, the solar system, computing, calculation, ethical purchasing, human rights, British values, evolution, emotional literacy etc.
This group is part of our provision for the academically more able children in school and children attend on different days. Below are links to some of the learning that has taken place and may serve as a useful stimulus for discussion at home.

Our ECO attitude!
We are very proud to have gained our 4th ECO SCHOOL green flag!
This is an aspect of our ethos that links closely with our passion for OUTDOOR LEARNING. Learning needs to be meaningful, and many of our children are differently motivated to engage through our outdoor environment and activities.
‘A Forest School is an innovative educational approach to outdoor play and learning’ (Forest School website) It motivates and challenges children to explore and engage with the natural world within a woodland environment and encourages them to embrace and enjoy their climate.
