Open Futures Grow it, Cook It

At Herringham Primary Academy we want to offer each of our children the opportunity to explore and enjoy different areas of learning. We have recently joined the ’Open Futures Organisation’ which offers our children a skills and enquiry-based curriculum development programme, which links to our children’s learning and life.  The Open Futures Organisation was developed to help children discover and develop practical skills, personal interests and values, thus contribute to their education and help to enhance their adult lives.

Open Futures is a fresh way of meeting the needs of primary school children, whose natural spirit of enquiry is fostered and nurtured through the programme’s curriculum strands – growit and cookit.  See below. The ‘Cook it‘ strand of Open Futures gives children the opportunity of really understanding where their food comes from and how it relates to who they are, both in terms of their physical development and their well-being.
