Learning is fun!

At Dixons Marchbank we believe that learning is fun. Our teaching methods are carefully crafted to ensure that our pupils get the most out of their learning at school and are able to take part in a number of exciting initiatives which maximise their learning beyond traditional classroom methods.  Examples include:

  • Spelling Bee: our academy Spelling Bee is a great opportunity for pupils to learn their spellings and grow their confidence whilst doing so. The Spelling Bee will include other Dixons academies in the next academic year. 
  • Read, Write inc: we have a lot of success with phonics through partaking in the 'Read, Write inc.' literacy programme.  Every pupil in Key Stage 1 takes part in the programme between 9am-10am each day. All Early Years and Key Stage 1 staff are trained in delivering the programme, which has a strong emphasis on learning by doing. Each pupil completes the learning course by the time they leave Key Stage 1.

We are developing and constantly evaluating a broad and balanced curriculum - our pupils are taught music by qualified peripatetic music teachers and also have the opportunity to play a variety of musical instruments in after school clubs. All PE lessons are taught by a qualified sports coach and a huge variety of additional sporting opportunities are offered at lunchtimes, after school and during holidays. Pupils take part in rugby, dance, archery, cricket, football, lacrosse and many other sports. They have the opportunity to take part in inter-school competitions at various locations.
