Enrichment Days and Weeks

At Parkfield we use theme weeks and days to make our curriculum even more exciting, engaging and memorable for our pupils. Although many themes are planned and taught on an annual basis, many are covered every two years. At times, classes cover Covering themes in this way allows the children to access particular areas of the curriculum a number of times throughout their lives at Parkfield – enabling a deeper understanding.
