Enrichment

 

Our Enrichment Afternoons aim to encourage exploration, creativity, healthy lifestyles and learning. The cross curricular activities focus on the children having fun and just enjoying the moment. Through play, investigation, exercise and relaxation we aim to enrich the education of the whole child and promote well-being for every member of our school community.

The Enrichment afternoons are a weekly reward for positive behaviour:

 9 or more Dojos by Friday = full Enrichment afternoon.

8 Dojos = sitting out for 5 minutes.

7 Dojos = sitting out for 10 minutes.

6 Dojos or less = sitting out for 15 minutes.

Key Stage 1 children are focusing on geography for their enrichment afternoons. This term were are looking at Australian art and culture. We made journey sticks and Aboriginal artworks.

Miss Reed challenged Key Stage 2 children to recreate local landmarks using LEGO. Everyone loved this activity and there were some fantastic models.

We have tried a range of activities, from sports and games to food technology and mindfulness to computing. Mrs Oliver is working on team work and Mrs Williamson is teaching our Key Stage 2 children some B.S.L (British Sign Language).

The LEGO workshops were a huge hit with all age groups. We have also taken part in art classes , origami, team building and lots of fantastic sports activities.
