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.

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.
School Trip & Enrichment Calendar
We believe in the philosophy: I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.
As such, each tem teachers plan for visits or visitors to ensure children have real experiences to inspire their learning. This year's plan can be found here:
