St Piers School had a visit from six teachers from St Georges College-Hartman House in Zimbabwe.
The teachers were welcomed by Peace Furusa who took them to their places of residence. They had a full programme, visiting the Medical Centre where they were taken round by Andy, one of the nurses, explaining about the multi-disciplinary approaches we use. They then went to observe some lessons in the school. They all agreed they were an eye opener as they observed some different teaching didactics being used.
Key Stage 2 and 3 history curriculum has been about the Victorian era this term. To help bring this to life, some of our students went on a trip to Dickens World to see what it was actually like to be a child in the Victorian age.
On 15th November 2013 St Piers School took part in a Harry Potter themed Children In Need Event. The whole school was divided into four Hogwarts houses, Ravenclaw, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff and Slytherin. After listening to each houses limericks (made up by the students), seeing the coat of arms (designed and painted by the students) and choosing a house leader (chosen by the students), we began our journey.
