Enrichment Activities

 

It's our aim at Merritts Brook to provide as many exciting learning opportunities as we can in addition to our already highly engaging curriculum.We subsidise trips to ensure that all children are able to access these additions to the curriculum that make learning so much fun.

Enriching the Curriculum

 

We want the children to have a thirst for knowledge and therefore feel that children  learn effectively through direct experience.  We therefore offer opportunities for pupils, from nursery upwards, to enhance their learning experiences by bringing the Curriculum alive and making their learning more fun.

 

We aim to enrich our curriculum through well chosen educational visits, workshops (both on and off site) and topic related costume and role play days. We have regular visitors in school such as the poet Paul Cookson, the fire service, theatre companies, etc. We have an artist in residence who teaches African and South American drumming to years 2,3 and 6.

 

 

 

Some of our children at Merritts Brook created some beautifully decorated birds. They are now guiding the way to the theatre doors on the first floor in Cannon Hill Park.

 
They look so colourful and exciting, and we can tell a lot of hard work went into them so we want to say a big well done and thank you to all the children who put in a lot of hard work and effort into making the birds.
