Every September all of our staff take part in something called the ‘Great Denham Odyssey.’ This is where they experience a slice of a project to gain a deeper understanding of how our curriculum works and what it is like for the children experiencing our curriculum.
Great Denham Staff Odyseey 2023
This year the outcome of our Odyssey was re-writing our family songs. Staff began by having a performance from a singer where they could enjoy a range of music and reconnect with other staff in their family group. Following on from this all staff then went on an immersive experience exploring their 'element.' Aqua family went on a river boat trip, Ventus family flew kites on Dunstable Downs, Ignis family lit fires in the woods and Terra family visited some beautiful gardens. Whilst on these visits they gathered vocabulary linked to their element and then returned to school to write their new poems and present them to the other staff. The poems they created will now be turned into a family song with a songwriter and some of our pupils! Watch this space for the results of the songs!
Great Denham Staff Odyssey 2021
Staff came back from the pandemic with a bang in September 2021! Working on the key concepts of community, tradition and diversity they tried to answer the essential questions 'Can food bring us together?' The day began with a stunning start with a visit from an expert chef, the Masterchef finalist, Steve Barringer, from Eileen's Kitchen, Ampthill, who demonstrated his talents followed by the staff being set the challenge of producing 12 uniform hors d’oeuvres that reflect the food of the country they were given. The day then included a visit to try authentic cuisine from their country and culminated in a fabulous finish where they presented their hors d'oeuvres to a panel including Steve! Following on from this were 2 days of workshops where staff had training on all aspects of REAL projects.
