Barwic Globetrotters

Here at Barwic Parade we have been busy developing the Barwic curriculum; a curriculum that is unique to our school and underpins our ethos and aims. We strongly believe that our children deserve the best and have therefore developed a curriculum that delivers just that. We want our children to develop a greater sense of the world around them, the countries and their traditions, the history, the artists, the music and culture of all 7 continents. Our curriculum has been built around the latest research of how children learn, how best to secure deeper learning and retain learning.


To support this love of learning about our world we have launched a program called Barwic Globetrotters. Every half term we will be learning lots about a particular area of the world.
