Alternative Curriculum at SHS

Alternative Curriculum at SHS

A group of students from Stourport High School were involved in a Crime Investigation workshop recently, as part of a series of alternative curriculum activities, in association with our Trust and Explore Learning.

Students developed their spoken language and writing skills through different tasks based around solving and dealing with a crime scene.  Students needed to ask relevant questions to extend their understanding before writing and presenting their findings through role play.

The group will be visiting Explore Learning in Stourbridge soon to improve their letter writing skills specifically in relation to writing effectively for the purpose of an audience.  They will have to select and organise key facts and apply their knowledge of vocabulary and grammar.

In addition, the group are in the process of setting up their own small business within school with the aim of selling Easter products.  They are working as a team to develop their enterprise skills and their understanding of market research, marketing and profit and loss.  Watch this space for further details!
