Bancrofts - Serious Fun

Our Y5 pupils benefitted from another fantastic morning of activities at Bancrofts. They are currently taking part in the 10 week 'Serious Fun on Saturdays' project, which sees pupils from both Brookside Drapers & Broadford join up with other Woodford primary schools for a wide range of lessons at the independent school.

This week we had a philosophy lesson. It really made my brain ache. We had to consider if a chair is a chair because of its name, or because of how we use it. Would an alien think it was a chair, or a helmet, or a climbing frame? 

I hadn't thought before about how something changes depending on your size and perspective. It really made me think

Following this the children spent an hour looking at classical civilizations, specifically the Ancient Greeks. They had to examine the story of Theseus and the Minotaur.

Thank you to Bancrofts for hosting a great morning of activities. We look forward to resuming the programme after half term
