Outside of classrooms in our school, the children continue to learn due to the extra-curricular activities provided to them. These enrich children's time at our school, and help them to develop crucial skills which compliment those gained in formal lessons. Our academy offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities to all of our children.
Playtimes are seen as a valuable extra-curricular activity, and our children have access to a rich environment and a wide range of equipment which ensures they can gain the most physically and mentally from their time outside each day. Well-trained staff and play-leaders supervise games and ensure a games and activities are well-organised and lead to positive experiences for all.
Our school has made the most of the opportunity to re-start other extra-curricular activities this term.
We have a wide range of clubs on offer across the year groups.
Premier Education currently provide a Cricket Club for both Year 5 and Year 6.
Creative Clubs and other clubs:
We have an Art Club for Year 3, a Newspaper Reporting Club for Year 4, a Bush-craft Club for Year 5, a Chess Club for Year 5, a Sewing Club for Year 5 and 6, a Reading Club for Year 6.
We believe that clubs like these are no only educational, they also provide unique life experiences, and opportunities for children to build skills such as teamwork, communication, instruction following, resilience and to increase their own confidence!
Trips and visits:
Again, school trips have been difficult over the past year. We have done our utmost to provide enriching opportunities in school, but welcome the chance to get out and about once more!
Currently planned are a History trip to the site of out local castle - castle mount. We are planning to study castles from the mediaeval period, then visit the site before designing a castle to suit the town.
We are also sending a group of pupils to the Crucial Crew event where they will learn about keeping safe in a variety of environments.
In the Autumn, our Year 6 pupils will be taking a residential trip to the Horstead Centre in Norfolk for some adventurous activities including archery, climbing, bush-craft and canoeing. The trip offers the children a wealth of experiences and helps them develop their confidence, resilience, communication skills, teamwork and independence. It’s also a great deal of fun!
