Curriculum Enrichment

At Hutton Rudby Primary School we believe that it is important for children to be able to apply their classroom learning to new situations. To encourage them to do this, and become more confident in doing so, we are very keen to give our children access to a wide range of trips and activities as well as enrichment time on a Friday afternoon where they can enhance their learning in many different ways.

We feel that our broad enriched curriculum coupled with our Cultural passport Challenges provide our children with many experiences which broad their horizons culturally, promotes a healthy body and mind, allows individual excellence and life long learner always focussing on determination.

Enrichment Fridays

Every Friday afternoon our children have the opportunity to further develop their curriculum skills in PE, Music, Spanish and Drama. 

PE enrichment – Delivered by specialised Sports coach and an additional Football coach from Middlesbrough Football Club’s Academy, our enrichment provision enables children to experience 3 hours and more of PE each week. We feel that this is critically important particularly in the light of the Pandemic and the time spent at home in lockdown and self-isolation.

Spanish/Music enrichment – The majority of our children when they leave Hutton Rudby and enter secondary school, will learn Spanish as a second language. Therefore, having liaised with our secondary providers, we have decided to teach the children Spanish as a Modern Foreign Language this year. This means that children from Year 1 to Year 6 will learn Spanish in Friday’s enrichment for at least one full term each academic year. It is not statutory for children in Key Stage 1 to learn an modern foreign language. However, we feel that by giving our KS1 children this opportunity at such an early age we are not only broadening their horizons but giving them a wonderful cultural experience at the start of their academic journey and teaching them early, ‘lifelong’ (CHILD) skills. Spanish is taught by a fully qualified Spanish teacher who delivers Spanish through the medium of music and song.

Music enrichment – All our children will receive music enrichment for at least one term throughout every academic year. This is in keeping with the Music National curriculum. Music is also taught in an enriched way through our Spanish provision.

In the Summer Term 2021, we also delivered a STEM enrichment afternoon every Friday for the children.  Other enriched experiences our children have received is baking. In the Academic year 17/18 and 18/19 all children in school had the opportunity to experience baking in school. This is something we will again re-visit again in the future.
