Once a term we have a themed week, this is in addition to the Dorridge Primary Curriculum work the children are covering.

There is one themed week per term:

Autumn Term - Creative Arts Week.

The weeks are enriched with a variety of specialist activities such as theatre workshops, visits to museums, drama workshops, specialist sports coaches, engineering companies, and visiting speakers.
