As part of our programme to support the transition to Bedales, we offer children the opportunity to spend a day experiencing some of the different and exciting subject areas distinctive to the school.
Taster Days 2023/24
11 March 2024 – Bedales Philosophy, Religion & Ethics (PRE) Taster Day (for children currently in Year 6)
Spend a day exploring PRE and why it is relevant to you. Walk in the footsteps of classical philosophers and look at what nature can tell us. Discover why we all think differently and why it is important to do so. Discuss and debate real-life issues from different perspectives. Foster your own development as a thinker and gain the opportunity to think critically and creatively, making new links and finding new insights.
11 March 2024 - Distinctively Dunhurst Taster Day (for children currently in Years 4 and 5)
Experience a day of creativity, producing a short story alongside a stop motion animation inspired by our beautiful surroundings, before ending the day in Outdoor Work, meeting the animals and cooking a snack on the open fire.
8 May 2024 – Bedales Geography Taster Day (for children currently in Year 6)
Geography underpins our understanding of the world, its people, places, landscapes and environments. Where better to learn about this than on the Bedales 120 acre estate. Learn about the ecosystem of our pond, what organisms live in it and how they interact with the environment, explore the native and natural flora and fauna of the estate, learn to read a map, including how to navigate, then put some of those skills into practice by orienteering our estate exercising the mind and body. It will be an exciting day for all.
8 May 2024 - Distinctively Dunhurst Taster Day (for children currently in Years 4 and 5)
Experience a day of teamwork, with a morning of sporting activities, before ending the day in Outdoor Work, meeting the animals and cooking a snack on the open fire.
