Every Friday afternoon all children have the opportunity to develop new skills and experiences through our Enrichment Programme that broadens and strengthens our school curriculum.
All activities are led by professionals in school or at specialist centres in and around the surrounding area using the most up to date equipment and facilities.
From September 2014, the school will be working alongside Scouting UK where they will earn badges to recognise their commitment and new found talents within different areas. We are delighted to be given this opportunity as the only primary school Scout group in the country!
For years 1,2 and 3, children will be earning Beaver Badges for completing certain tasks involving;
Healthy Living and Eating
Years 4, 5 and 6 will be working towards their cubs badges in;
Not only does such an opportunity bring about excellent learning opportunities that can be applied within the school curriculum but develops our young people with regards to confidence, self-esteem and resourcefulness that are essential skills to be the leaders in the 21st Century.
Within the curriculum we also strongly believe that our children at Stoneyholme Primary School learn best through the use of the outdoors and by visiting or meeting experts who can bring what they are learning within the classroom to life.
With the advantage of having two mini-buses, this means that for every topic planned, the children get some first hand experience that really embeds their learning.
