It is our aim to give every child a chance to experience a further ‘enriched’ curriculum: a chance to develop the skills taught in their classroom lessons to practical activities.
As well as developing the use of the outdoors in a range of their lessons, each class will have
‘Forest School’ sessions with Mrs O'Meally, Miss Mapother and Mrs Lay. Children will take part in groups and will have a chance to experience a range of enriching activities in each rotation.
Children will also have time to learn through our 'Spade to Fork' sessions.
This is where we get students out of the classroom and into the garden with our fantastic selection of children’s gardening tools. In these sessions, we hope to educate them on how their food is grown and explore Britain’s flora via hands-on learning.
It is our hope that, as well as engaging with the outdoor environment, the children will have practical experiences to develop things that they have learnt in lessons like science, maths, design technology and even develop communication and teamwork in the process.
In keeping with our focus on the Catholic Virtues, each class has their own 'wish' that they are hoping demonstrates their use of the virtues. As a school, we look to show our use of the virtues in all that we do. With this in mind, we have an 'enrichment wish' for the whole school...

Will you play your part to look after our common home?
Can you take simple everyday eco-actions to care for the earth, like turning off lights, reducing water waste and recycling?
And will you live more simply, reducing the amount of things we buy and throw away, so that we don’t take more than our fair share?
Sensory Garden - Relax and Retreat
Miss Neville has been busy practising her cursive handwriting to help transform our sensory garden into a place where we can retreat and relax! Her quotes and prayers really help us to develop our mindfulness. You can also hear our wind chimes which we hope help take your mind off the noise of the traffic going by.
