New experiences and opportunities, enable children to develop character, resilience and motivation. They help develop an appreciation for cultural and community issues, teamwork and social responsibility. So, whenever the opportunity arises please enrich your child’s life with new experiences and visits to museums, galleries and clubs allowing your child to discover what may become their own particular interest and passion.
20 Things To Do
Collect evidence (photos, drawings, notes, tickets etc) of each activity in a scrap
book and bring it into school to share with your class. When you have completed all 20 activities you can show your scrap book to the Headteacher who will award you with a special certificate at the Year 2 Leavers Assembly.
After the assembly you can then take your scrap book home and it will be a
wonderful book of fun memories to keep forever. (scrapbooks are available from the school office for £1)
Trips, Visitors and Workshops
At Village Infant School we provide enrichment opportunities throughout the curriculum in terms of trips, visitors and workshops, which will engage the pupils and enhance their learning. Empowering experiences is a fundamental part of our curriculum and are planned for by each year group.
At Village Infants we value extracurricular activities. We currently run some lunchtime and after school clubs. These vary between music and sports based clubs.
Children love sowing seeds, watering young plants and eating food that they have grown. Through our allotment our pupils engage with nature and the passing seasons which improves their mental and physical health. They learn about soil, nutrition, science and the life cycles of the vegetables they grow. Nursery and Reception have their own gardens and KS1 regularly visit our allotment which is a short walk from the school and Year 2 Gardening club takes place in the Spring and Autumn Terms. Our school cooks prepare the food we harvest for us to share.
