Lower Key Stage 2
Our Character Curriculum includes following the Commando Joe's programme of missions.
In Autumn term, Lower Key Stage 2 the classes undertook a series of Commando Joe's missions, based on the former British Army Officer Ed Stafford, who holds the Guiness World Record for walking the length of the Amazon Rainforest. As explorers, we encountered many challenges along the way, coming face to face with deadly creatures and natural disasters. It was a great test of our strength of character, to undertake such a gargantuan task!
The missions each week enable children to build upon Mowbray's core values of developing: Resilience, Life Skills, Curiosity, Risk, Aspiration, Self Awareness, Self Esteem and Self Belief, through the RESPECT model of Commando Joe's. Combining these factors throughout various tasks and activities, is the true meaning of character.
