At Garboldisham we teach through whole school topics, we find ways of making children’s learning connect with what they already know and lead them on to discover new skills and concepts. Some subjects are taught on their own such as modern foreign languages.
Children also receive instrument tuition from Year 3. At the moment children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 are learning the recorder.
Sport is a big feature of life at Garboldisham, our sports co-ordinator plays a leading role and works with other schools in the cluster to make sure we enter for tournaments such as Tag Rugby, Football, Netball and Athletics.
Children start to go swimming in Year 3 and we usually go for one term per year. This means that by the time the children leave the school they should all be confident swimmers.
