Enrichments & Club Mondays
Club Mondays is an integral part of our curriculum here at Harris Academy Falconwood. It aims to provide your children with an opportunity to explore new interests and develop valuable skills beyond our standard classroom offer. Club Mondays takes place every Monday from 3.15pm to 4.05pm and is a compulsory part of our school curriculum.
We believe this is an essential time for our students to learn new skills and develop interests beyond our formalised taught curriculum offers. Furthermore, students also have the opportunity to interact with different students who share their interests and helping to develop cooperation, tolerance and respect.
Students are given a variety of clubs to choose from and take part in five different clubs per year, with each lasting approximately 5 weeks. We are constantly reviewing the clubs we have on offer to meet the interest and needs of the students at our Academy while also matching the interests and expertise available from our staff.
The table below outlines our themes for our current Club Mondays offer.
|Communication||Communication is a key skill for life in the modern work. These clubs will aim to help students to understand the importance of these skills and provide an opportunity to develop some of these skills.|
|Understanding the World We Live In||Our world is full of wonders and interesting features. These clubs aim to explore and explain these wonders and provide students with an opportunity to develop their thinking about the world around them.|
|Health and Fitness||Health and Fitness is key to a happy and successful life. These clubs aim to help develop your understanding and teach you skills to help you maintain good levels of physical and mental health.|
|Hobbies/Past Times||Hobbies and Past Times are proven to help social development, improve mental health, increase motivation and increase happiness. These clubs give you the time and space to engage in a new hobby or past time.|
You can find more information about our clubs in the information leaflet linked below.
The Academy Enrichment programme is an extension to learning which gives students opportunities to make accelerated progress and access to new, more challenging concepts or content.
At Key Stage Three, there is a varied range of activities on offer which broaden the learning experience of the wider curriculum. At Key Stage Four, the enrichment sessions are used as part of our intervention programme to improve knowledge and understanding of subject specific information. All of our enrichment sessions are very worthwhile and can help students to develop key attributes such as problem solving, creative thinking and using their initiative.
