New Building a Boost for Year 6
In May, Stamford Junior School will celebrate the completion of its new, purpose-built Year 6 building which will greatly enhance the School’s provision for Year 6 pupils, and offer many academic and social benefits.
The Year 6 block will provide a unique learning environment, where pupils will be able to acquire valuable learning habits such as research and independent study skills. Having a dedicated Year 6 space also allows teachers the flexibility to inter-weave group activities and other pursuits which encourage ‘Independent Learning, Intellectual Curiosity’ (ILIC) – the ethos central to the School’s academic provision.
Mrs Emma Smith, Head of Stamford Junior School, said: “Year 6 at Stamford Junior School is a period rich in learning. The new environment we have created will foster greater independence and provide more stimulation, allowing the pupils to move on to senior school confident in their abilities. Most importantly, we want the pupils to cherish their time in Year 6 and develop a lifelong love of learning.”
The new building is nestled into the expansive, verdant grounds of the Junior School, and surrounded by playing fields which back onto the River Welland. The building itself consists of four classrooms with a shared break-out area. There is also a science and food technology room, complete with hobs and ovens, for science, nutrition and cookery lessons. The Design Technology facilities within this room include everything from saws and hammers to digital printers, enabling pupils to hone their skills in innovative design and construction.
The building is fully equipped with technology which facilitates learning, such as iPads, interactive Smart boards and online resources.
