At Lansbury Lawrence our broad, balanced and innovative curriculum offers children the very best day-to-day learning experiences possible.

However, we feel that our children deserve even more. Our curriculum is enriched by offering children opportunities and experiences that they may not otherwise have access to. These experiences captivate imaginations, introduce children to new interests, develop confidence in speaking and listening skills and raise aspirations for the future.

Regular enrichment activities we offer include:

Educational Visits Educational trips and visits support and enhance our thematic curriculum. Each class will go on at least one educational visit each half term.

Visits may include:

  • the theatre
  • a range of museums
  • art galleries
  • local parks and outdoor spaces
  • historical venues, or places of interest in and around London
  • residential visits to Gorsefield and Suffolk (Years Five and Six)

Visitors and Workshops

We also have additional workshops and visits to enhance children’s learning experiences.

Workshops and visitors include:

  • animal shows
  • puppet making workshops
  • historical drama activities
  • planetarium domes
  • cultural drama and dance workshops
  • ICT and computing workshops

African Drumming Every Friday, Penny Elkins from Tower Hamlets Arts and Music Education Service (THAMES) comes in to teach African Drumming to Year One and Two.

String Instruments On Thursdays Patricia Bento Tomé from THAMES teaches violin and cello to Year Three and Four.

Choir We have a choir for pupils in Key Stage Two.

Performing Arts All children get to take part in at least one performance during the school year. One highlight of the year are the Christmas productions that children from Nursery to Year Six participate in.

Wigmore Hall Schools Partnership ​Lansbury Lawrence is very lucky to be involved in a partnership with Wigmore Hall and THAMES. Wigmore Hall offers CPD and support to teachers in delivering quality first Music teaching across the school, as well as inviting professional musicians in to the school to enrich our thematic and cross-curricular Learning Projects.

Sport Provision We believe that children should be healthy, fit, active and enjoy competition in sport.

In addition to two full hours of Physical Education each week with our specialist sports coach (including swimming for Year Four and Five), children have opportunities to participate in a variety of athletic and sports clubs as well as taking part in events and competitions with other schools.

We hold a number of Specialty Days and Weeks throughout the year such as The Big Draw, Science Week, Comic and Sports Relief.

For a full list of enrichment opportunities see the SMSC and British Values section of our website.
