Congratulations to all those allocated a September 2018 Reception Year  place at Ark Blacklands!  Please remember to return paper copies of  your completed admission forms to our school office as soon as possible to confirm your acceptance.  If you have been offered but do not wish to take up your place, please do let the school office know as soon as possible so that the place can be allocated to another pupil.

Enrichment

We believe that education should extend beyond the classroom. We offer the following enrichment activities at ARK Blacklands.

AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS & ACTIVITIES

Children will be able to participate in a range of enrichment clubs after school and these clubs vary each term.

A full list of these is updated termly here: http://arkblacklandsprimary.org/life-school/after-school-clubs-and-activ...

OUT OF SCHOOL CLUBS

From 8.00am the children are welcome to attend Breakfast Club.  The cost is £2.50 per day.  Activities will be provided to stimulate their thinking skills alongside a healthy breakfast meal. The children will be expected to follow the breakfast club rules and work with others on a range of activities and games.

From 3.15 - 5.30pm children are welcome to attend Out of School Club. The cost is £6.00 for the whole session or £3.00 for the first hour and includes a healthy snack. This club is offered during term time only. For further information or a booking form, please see the office.

CURRICULUM WORKSHOPS

Sometimes teachers may identify pupils who would benefit from additional support with specific curriculum areas. Currently in year 6 we have several such workshops running:

SPAG - developing spelling, punctuation and grammar.
Boys Writing - with a focus on engaging boys in writing.

Breakfast Booster and After School Booster Maths - small group focus.

Greater Depth Groups - extending most able pupils.

 

Attendance at these workshops will be by invitation only.
