THE ENRICHMENT PROGRAMME INTRODUCED IN 2014 CONTINUES TO GIVE CHILDREN OPPORTUNITIES TO EXTEND THEIR LEARNING BEYOND THE CLASSROOM AND CURRICULUM BOUNDARIES.
Teaching staff across the Lower and Upper School put together enrichment tasks in an attempt to engage the children's interests in an area outside of the boundaries of the curriculum. This traditionally takes place in the September term.
We encourage the children to select a subject that interests them and attempt a task, which will enable them to develop research skills and encourage independent thinking. These tasks provide an important opportunity for the children at The Banda to further their interest in different areas of the curriculum and complete a project independent of teacher supervision.
The tasks are optional and there is no obligation for a pupil to participate. The tasks set are designed to appeal to all of the different learning styles as well as a broad spread of abilities. Tasks range from creating a ‘Street Performance’ to Logo Designing, Bird Spotting, making a French Video Diary, producing a holiday brochure and much, much, more.
The Enrichment Programme helps to stretch our pupils and give them unique opportunities to engage in self-selected tasks that really capture their imagination.
All projects are available on display at a later date for both pupils, staff and parents with some of the most innovative enrichment tasks shared at school assemblies.
