Curriculum Enrichment

Curriculum Enrichment

At Firthmoor Primary we offer a wide range of experiences and challenges that enrich our curriculum through well chosen visits, workshops and topic related days.  This is to ensure that our pupils are inspired to learn outside of the classroom and provide children with first-hand, memorable experiences, invaluable to their learning.

To support and extend our learners experiences, we:

  • plan a wide range of activities that enrich the curriculum
  • plan visits to museums, galleries, places of worships and other venues of historical, cultural or educational interest
  • encourage children to take part in local sporting events and competitions
  • celebrate the skills and talents of our children within special assemblies and events
  • invite visitors into the school to share their knowledge, experiences and expertise
  • arrange special workshops on-site, such as graffiti art, gardening projects, cooking and food preparation workshops
  • provide opportunities to see, and participate in, performing arts, both within school or at external locations
  • offer learning opportunities and events before and after school
  • use the local environment as a resource
