What is Enrichment?

Thameside Primary School dedicates 5 full days (a total of 25 hours) of the academic year to running Enrichment activities for our children.

This year, the theme for Enrichment will be 'Where in the World?'

Through Enrichment, we aim:

  • To give the children at Thameside the choice to explore new activities and subjects
  • To increase pupil's awareness of the world beyond the UK
  • To help build relationships with other children within their key stage
  • To utilise expertise of staff and parents
  • To add activities that suit pupil needs (e.g. team building and strategy games)
  • To increase pupil engagement
  • To include parents.

How we will achieve this:

  • Enrichment activities will fit into the theme 'Where in the World?'
  • Children will choose activities that interest them each term
  • Activities will be offered by staff and parents to reflect their skills and interests
  • Children and staff will evaluate their chosen activity and give their ideas on how it could be improved
  • Sessions will have children of mixed ages within key stages (to impact positively on transition)
  • Foundation stage children will be included in sessions from the summer term
  • The Enrichment blog will be updated to showcase what learning has taken place during each session
