Children have an innate curiosity for their world and in particular they have a strong desire to learn about the natural world. Children love learning about wild animals and plants and never tire of new information and facts whether it be about the rainforests of Indonesia or the New Forest. Children notice things when they are out and about and these observations lead to questions; questions which are the fuel for deep learning.
At Wicor, our aim is to capitalise on all this learning power by providing a rich and inspiring environmental learning curriculum which encompasses natural history, environmental science and horticulture.
'Harfest' is our seasonal event which brings the school and community together around the shared focus of food and drink. Harfest is part of British Food Fortnight. During Harfest the children have an opportunity to work alongside chefs and local food producers to learn about food preparation and what food and drink is produced locally.
