Pupils Swing into the Rainforest

Junior pupils at Sibford School started the term by discovering their classrooms transformed into rainforests...
"All subjects can relate back to the rainforest"

Complete with snakes, parrots and gorillas, Sibford School is operating a ‘creative curriculum’ with lessons all based on a central theme.

Teacher Edward Rossiter explained: “While Geography is an obvious example, all subjects can relate back to the rainforest…in History we are finding out about the European explorers who discovered these strange lands; in Music, we are looking at tribal rhythms; and we are using the story of Mamba et l’oiseau-crocodile’ as the basis for French lessons.

“The children were so excited to find their classrooms decked out in every shade of green imaginable…complete with leaves, fronds and fluffy animals hanging from the ceilings…that coming back to school after the break wasn’t a challenge at all!”
