Explore

“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” – T.S. Eliot.

Our Explore Term is a time full of adventure and excitement. Through the teaching of geography, design and technology and STEM we want to expose our students to endless opportunities to inquire. We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives, equipping them well for further education and beyond. Our curriculums are designed to develop curiosity in the world around them and the resilience for pupils to develop their own ideas from thought, to paper, to reality.  They will acquire new knowledge and skills, whilst working independently and collaboratively. We will take pride in not just the end product but also the process it took to get there.  During our Explore Term Braywick students will become intrepid explorers; ready to take on the world they live in.

STEM

Our STEM-based education teaches children far more than science, technology, engineering and mathematical concepts – with a focus on hands-on learning and real-world applications it develops life-long skills such as curiosity, critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, communication and collaboration.

Geography

We believe that Geography helps to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. Children are encouraged to develop a greater understanding and knowledge of the world, as well as their place in it. Our Geography curriculum enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which can and are used to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. They will learn conventions followed by real geographers. We believe that geography helps our pupils to make sense of the world around them and piques their curiosity in places and people. It will engage Braywick Court pupils in their world, often spurring them into action, as future custodians of our planet!

​Design Technology

Our Design and technology curriculum allows for our children’s imagination to run wild. They will be challenged to solve problems and enjoy experimentation to find answers. We aim for them to be free from inhibitions and fear of failure.

 “It is in our nature to explore, to reach out into the unknown. The only true failure would be not to explore at all.” – Ernest Shackleton
