Wednesday 19th October
Wider Opportunities returned this half term with lots of excitement from the children (and the adults too!). It has been great and it reminded us just how much we’ve missed the chance to take part in
activities outside of our usual curriculum. This gives the children time to learn and enjoy a new skill/concept/life lesson of their choosing. The workshops change every half term and the children make their new choices for the next cycle of workshops.
