About Alder

Throughout the year, the children study a range of subjects and topics. For example, in humanity lessons, pupils concentrate on the Ancient Egyptians, the Aztecs and a local area topic, which focuses on the Forest of Dean and Cheltenham. Last year Alder and Poplar visited the Dean Forest Heritage Centre, the Science Festival, enjoyed an historical research walk around Cheltenham (and during one afternoon made pizza at Waitrose!)

As the children enter Year 5, they begin to take on extra responsibilities to help the day-to-day running of the school. They share a milk bottle collection rota with Poplar, collecting and recycling the milk containers throughout the school. Furthermore, the children take a greater role in whole school events, such as in the end of year school Concert and the Christmas and Summer Fayres.
