Enrichment Programme Proves Popular
As the second half of the term commences, we look back at what has been an exciting couple of months. From our pizza cooking competition right down to the reveal of our brand new reading huts, there has always been something new to look forward to.
Here at King’s Hall, we want everyone to have the opportunity to learn and grow, and thanks to our sprawling woodlands and fantastic facilities, we have just the space in which to do so! That’s where our Enrichment Programme comes in …
Open to all Year 6 primary school children, the King’s Hall Enrichment Programme is a unique combination of workshops designed to enhance children’s communication, creativity and confidence. Sessions range from art and languages, to sport and creative writing.
Building on the popularity of last year’s programme, we kicked things off in early September with a thrilling creative writing workshop led by our Head of English, Jane Stuckes. The day saw a band of budding writers enjoy a storytelling seminar, followed by a group discussion in which they shared some of their favourite tales.
They were then taken on a journey of exploration, using only maps and games as their guide. Thanks to our wonderful Adventure Playground, the group rounded off the workshop with a physical journey. With its impressive tower and traversing ropes, the site lending itself to even the most magical storybook!
In October, we then ran a series of sports workshops which were, as always, extremely popular. The sessions began with a number of team challenges that were designed to strengthen the teamwork between players, and to also demonstrate the importance of communication in group situations. Our Director of Sport, Alistair Halls, was delighted with the results and the pupils certainly seemed to enjoy these ice-breakers.
Over the two days, the groups took part in small games of netball, rugby, cricket and hockey. These were ideal as they catered to those who were new to the sport but also to the most advanced players.
Commenting, Ali said: "I was most impressed with how well the groups listened to the feedback and how they acted upon this. We had a lovely bunch of children and I look forward to seeing them again in the near future."
