Enrichment at Feckenham CE Primary School
‘Live life in all its fullness.’ John 10
At Feckenham we know that spirituality means so many different things to different people and that it is largely immeasurable in its impact. Sometimes we plan for spiritual experiences but often, they are simply moments in our lives that help build an understanding of who we are, why we are here and help us acknowledge the wondrous world that has been gifted to us by God.
Enrichment opportunities – those little extras that bring joy, anticipation, excitement and realisations are both planned, so we don’t neglect the spiritual side of our pupils, and grasped when an unexpected opportunity comes our way.
Enrichment at Feckenham – turning the simple things in life into long lasting memories of the shortest period in our lives – our childhood.
Here is more information about the many enrichment opportunities our children experience at Feckenham CE Primary School:
Building dens, climbing trees, discovering wildlife, getting very muddy, making toast on a campfire, drinking hot chocolate outside to keep us warm, bird watching, growing vegetables to eat, learning to manage risk, getting stung by a nettle and knowing what to do next, listening for the sounds of nature, ‘cooking’ in the mud kitchen, learning to be an orienteer, having fun with our friends.
