On the 19th September 2016, Torriano took part in the World’s Largest Lesson; teaching our pupils about the goals and helping them to become the generation that ‘changed the world’. Young people everywhere were encouraged to ‘invent, innovate and campaign’ in order to help make the Goals a reality by 2030.
A warm welcome from the Torriano 2016-2017 team, on the Earth Kingdom in the Key Stage 2 playground. More information regarding staff members will be available on the school website soon. Year group information can be found in the ‘Meet the Teacher’ presentations here.
In March, the children curated an exhibition to raise awareness about the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. They communicated their learning through Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths – STEAM! A case study about the project will be available to view on the website at a later date.

The final phase of the Active Spaces project is complete after a year’s programme of building works! The new Community Kitchen is a wonderful addition to the ‘Earth Kingdom’, providing a special place to grow, cook and play for our children and families. We look forward to developing food technology as part of our Science and Healthy Schools’ curriculum and to hosting many community events.
Primary Talk is a programme supporting the communication development of primary aged children.
