Enrichment

KS2

On a Friday afternoon all children in KS2 get the chance to participate in Enrichment. At the beginning of a half-term all the children will be told which activities will be on offer for Enrichment. The children then number the activities in order of which they would prefer to do. Then the children are given one of their first 3 choices depending on which activities are of high demand. The children participate in this activity for the half-term.

The activities  on offer for enrichment give the children the opportunity to try new things and learn new skills. Enrichment also gives the children the opportunity to mix with children from other year groups.

KS1

On a Friday the children in KS1 also get chance to particpate in Enrichment however it runs slightly different to Enrichment in KS2. In KS1 the children are still in mixed age groups but complete every activity on offer over the term. Each activity lasts for 2 weeks then the children swap to the next activity. Enrichment in KS1 still has the same benefits for the children as KS2.

The activities on offer this term are as follows:

  • IPADS- this activity gives the children the opportunity to develop their computer skills.
  • Construction- this activity involves the children planning and making objects relating to a story read in the session.
  • Outdoor games- the children have the opportunity to particpate in new games which involves learning new skills and rules.
  • Board games- this activity gives the children the opportunity to develop turn taking skills and also their ability to follow the rules of different games.
  • POM POMS– this activity will develop the children’s creative skills.

In KS1 children who have not completed and handed homework in miss Enrichment time to complete it. Also children who are orange on our behaviour traffic light system miss 5 minutes and children on red miss 10 minutes.
