We offer a range of different enrichment activities and events in order to ensure we are equipping our children with the knowledge and cultural capital to succeed in life. In addition, enrichment activities and events are in place to further develop provision of spiritual, moral, social and cultural education as well as the promotion of British Values and the understanding of protected characteristics.
Cultural Capital = "The essential knowledge that pupils need to be educated citizens, introducing them to the best that has been though and said and helping to engender an appreciation pf human creativity and achievement."

Author & Illustrator Jamie Littler
Our Year 4 children received a virtual visit from Jamie Littler, a professional author and illustrator, on Friday 27th November. The children were thoroughly inspired by his visit and enjoyed the activities he provided them with. They were especially proud of the illustrations they produced.
Blue Cross Pets & Wellbeing Workshops
From EYFS to Year 6, Blue Cross virtually delivered workshops raising awareness of the needs of pets and how this mirrors the needs we have as humans. During the workshops, children took part in a workout highlighting the importance of exercise as an important contribution to wellbeing for both pets and humans. Children also learnt about how to be safe around pets and approach them cautiously.
Virtual Bedtime Stories Event
This year our annual bedtime stories event became virtual due to COVID-19. Teachers and children put on their pyjamas and onesies and logged into Zoom. Across the event children were able to listen to 3 stories chosen from a variety which were on offer to them. Many many families joined the event and there was a real online buzz throughout the event. We were so pleased to be able to continue this much loved event despite the pandemic. Check out our gallery from the event below!

Elf Day in aid of Alzheimer's Society
Our School Council decided they wanted to support the Alzheimer's Society as our chosen charity this month. In order to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society, we took part in the "Dress as an Elf Day". Children were spoken to about what Alzheimers is and discussed the importance of supporting charities to help vulnerable people.
