As part of our Creative Curriculum, the Prep School embarked upon Flight Week. With a range of educational and creative activities, the aim was to lay down conceptual understanding of essential themes required for the curriculum in future education.

This enabled our younger and older children to work together in teams – collaboration is an essential skill for our children’s lives in the future. Continue reading →
As we welcomed all students back to Seaford Prep at the start of the year they had a fun filled activity week. The exciting induction activities and trips encouraged new friendships and supported the transition to a new school or year group. The activities were designed to help the children get to know one another and to help them adjust to their new classrooms and teachers.
The week started with a Woodland Walk complete with a teddy bears’ picnic. The children brought in their favourite teddy or cuddly toy and explored the woods.
The next day those from Years 2 – 5 took part in a circus workshop. They loved every minute and learnt all sorts of new skills. It was fabulous seeing the children working together as they mastered plate spinning, juggling, hula hooping and even stilt walking.
