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.
