Gretton Primary School

50 B4 Y7

We have come up with 50 experiences that we think children ought to have before they leave in Year 6 to go to secondary school.  These experiences are designed to nurture children's curiosity, challenge them to go out of their comfort zone and contribute to their personal development as they travel through the school.  They focus on four areas:

  1. Arts, culture and heritage 

  1. Appreciation of nature 

  1. Physical/ practical skills 

  1. Contributing to society 

The 50 B4 Y7 experiences involve, for example, visits to places of cultural significance, enjoying outside experiences, performances and learning about other cultures. Each year, children will enjoy a number of these experiences until, by the end of Year 6, they have filled their 50 B4 Y7 book with their memories.

A full list of all 50 experiences can be found below. Uploaded is how activities will be delivered this academic year.
