Miss Lambert supported Charleigh in learning about the discovery of Tutankhamun. Charleigh really enjoyed the lesson and was very engaged when making a clay model of a Sphinx and a Pyramid.
At the Beacon Centre we believe that every young person should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development, whatever their age, ability or circumstances.
As a school we aim to offer a wide range of enrichment opportunities for learning provided by a range of activities conducted outside the classroom.
Enrichment enables students to develop key skills and the activities that will help to foster them. For all students the aims are:
- Developing self esteem
- Encouraging team-working skills
- Familiarisation with basic tools and fire
- Encouraging relationship building among their peers
As the activities take place outdoors, it is possible that student’s clothes could get dirty.
Please could students bring a change of clothes and footwear to wear for the activities to avoid their school clothes and shoes getting dirty. Depending on the activity and the weather, they may also require a waterproof coat and trousers, warm layers of clothing or wellies.
The days for Enrichment:
Monday – Year 10
Tuesday – KS3a
Wednesday – Year 11
Thursday – KS3b
