Pupils grapple with ethical ideas surrounding the exploitation of the world's natural resources through curriculum-based projects.
St James' Junior and Infant School has spent the past four years revising its curriculum around central themes prescribed by the pupils including "our world", "our community", "ourselves" and "our future".
Among other activities based on the central themes, the pupils enjoy harvesting the school's vegetable garden and cooking new foods; the practical experiential learning of growing vegetables and cooking have really taken hold.
Finally, they celebrate the end of their days at junior school with an exciting transition project and a school outing.
