Successful Westgate6 Curiosity Exit day

In Years 7 and 8, students at The Westgate School have a bespoke curriculum called ‘Westgate 6’. This involves focusing on a ‘Big idea’ each half term which supports the development of each student to be equipped for life. The curriculum aims to make every student an effective communicator, resilient learner, adaptable leader, analytical thinker, creative initiator and independent organiser.

Year 8 began their Big Idea with a trip to three diverse London museums: The Natural History Museum, The Victoria and Albert Museum and The Science Museum. This trip enabled students to develop their investigative skills as they had to search for information in the exhibits. Students have since then been working on key skills including designing and building a museum model of their very own! We showcased their brilliant work in a ‘Museum Exhibit’ and invited year 7 pupils to view and evaluate the hard work that went into creating these models. Year 8 had some incredibly imaginative ideas ranging from a ‘Museum of Dreams’ to ‘The History of Gaming’ and ‘Fashion of The ages’. It was incredible to see how curious our students were throughout the whole process and we look forward to developing this further.

Top work year 8!
