At Breaside all children in the Junior Department are given the opportunity to be educated by our team of specialist teaching staff.
Science is taught by a specialist teacher in a dedicated, fully resourced classroom to pupils from Year 2 to Year 6. We have an interactive whiteboard and IT resources including a variety of computer simulations for teaching topics such as the Earth, Sun, Moon and Gases around us. We have a wide range of biological models, measuring and circuits equipment together with vibrant, colourful posters and textbooks.
French & Spanish are taught from Kindergarten to Year 6 and an annual trip to France in Year 6 gives our children the opportunity to practise the language skills that they have learnt. Spanish club is also on offer and as a school we are very aware of the future needs of our children in the global economy in which we live.
Art/Design Technology/Food Technology - All Breaside children participate in art, design technology and craft activities where they can develop their powers of observation, technical skill, presentation and individual creativity. As part of their curriculum food technology is now also included, and in addition there are cookery clubs for both Infants and Juniors.
Sport - Both boys and girls have a full sporting program at Breaside, we encourage healthy competition in PE and Sports, offering fixtures with other schools, swimming galas and the teaching and practising of skills in lessons. We consider sport to be an integral part of education and development. A calendar is published at the start of each term which contains a full programme of matches and tournaments with other schools at many of the different age groups and levels of competition. In all areas of sport, a sense of fair play and team spirit are encouraged as well as a healthy desire to win fairly and to lose graciously.
Our Sports Days are held in the summer term to which all parents are invited. As well as making full use of our own facilities, the school also has use of Bromley Cricket Club which is local and used for lessons, this is where our home fixtures for football, cricket and rugby are played against other schools.
ICT is taught from Reception through to Year 6. Many opportunities are provided for all of our children from photography, computerised toys, interactive whiteboards and of course our fully equipped ICT suite. Our Kindergarten is also fully equiped with its own interactive whiteboard, computers and electronic toys.
