Children are encouraged to attend clubs, which cover a variety of activities to enrich and consolidate learning.
Theatre groups, storytellers and themed workshops are organised termly in order to enhance the children’s experience and enjoyment.
Workshops and visitors provide pupils with the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding outside of the classroom whilst remaining in school. These are linked to our creative curriculum. This term we have already enjoyed a Superheroes workshop in Year 1, a Jungle workshop in Nursery and Reception and a Circus Skills day in Year 2. Have a look at our photo gallery to see what an amazing experience the children had.
We arrange a number of off-site visits: some in the local area, others further afield. Apart from the educational and life-skill opportunities the trips provide, the children’s safety and the cost of such trips are of serious consideration when they are planned.
Upcoming trips this term include:
- Year 6 trip to the Imperial War Museum, Duxford
- Year 4 trip to the Verulamium Museum
- Year 5 trip to the Fitzwilliam Museum
All our day trips are linked to the creative curriculum to enhance children’s learning and engage them in their new topic.
This year we have introduced enrichment days which will involve some or all of the children. Every half term the children will have a Love to Investigate day which develops scientific enquiry and problem solving skills. On 30th September some children will be involved in an architecture challenge – make sure you keep an eye out for the photographs!
A residential trip is an annual learning experience for the older children in KS2 which allows them to develop a wide range of skills. In recent years his has been to an outdoor centre on the Norfolk coast. Last year the children went to Butlins in Skegness to take part in a Learning Adventure. Details of this year’s residential trip will be available soon.
