This term, the girls have been considering the question, “Was Alice in Wonderland a daydreamer or an intrepid explorer?”, and inspired Lewis Carroll’s poem about ‘The Walrus and the Carpenter’ they undertook independent research in a specialist area about the marvellous molluscs in the tale.
This has ranged from engineering an oyster reef out of cardboard and performing a protest speech about saving our oceans to recreating how professional pearl divers collect their bounty in the school swimming pool.
Today, the girls showed off everything they’ve discovered to a packed audience of mums and dads bursting with pride for their little learners.
Next half term, the Pre-Prep department will be continuing its educational adventure down the rabbit hole as the focus moves to the Queen of Hearts and the history of monarchy.
The girls will be taking the lead in their learning and exploring the areas which excite interest and spark discussion so watch this space for even more fascinating projects to come.
It’s all part of our Learn Challenge Curriculum which encourages girls as young as 4 years old to explore, investigate, question the world around them and build their confidence about working independently – skills that will stand them in good stead for many years to come.
