Enrichment for all
At Coppice School, we offer a wide range of experiences and challenges that encourage enrichment throughout curriculum provision through a variety of different resources and experiences. This ensures that our pupils are inspired to learn in and out of the classroom, building on skills that are required for their journey to adulthood.
Through our Curriculum Enrichment programme we use the talents and experiences of others from outside of the school, in combination with the talents and interests of staff within our school, to enrich our student’s education.
The activities offered vary from physically challenging and cultural, to school based activities. Listed below are some of the examples of how we enrich our pupils learning:
- Rebound Therapy
- Theatre visits
- Residential visits
- Whole school/ key stage theme days
- Using the climbing wall at Stone Hill School
- Horse riding
- Enterprise projects
- Our own school based productions and performances
- Workshops and visitors to develop areas of learning
- Lunchtime and after school clubs Click here to view our lunchtime clubs
- Trips and visits in the local and wider community
- Work Experience
Climbing at Stone Hill School
As part of the pathways ‘Health’ and ‘Community Inclusion’, six of our KS4 and 5 students visit Stone Hill School each Monday morning to use the indoor climbing wall, alongside students from Stone Hill. The pupils learn about teamwork, communication, planning, safety, assessment of risk, leadership and climbing movement. Some of our students are working towards a ‘Level 1 qualification in sports leadership’. Stone Hill are an Awarding Centre for the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS). After climbing, the students from Coppice and Stone Hill have lunch together. Coppice would like to say a huge thank you to the staff and pupils at Stone Hill for letting us be a part of this fantastic opportunity.
Coppice ‘Choice’ School Shop:
Our school shop is located in Thorne, it opens each morning to sell products for children, that have been donated to our school.
Our KS3, KS4 and KS5 pupils work at the shop as part of their work experience, and to develop skills to prepare them for adulthood, as well as working on functional Maths and English skills.
If you have any children’s toys, clothes etc. that we may be able to sell at our shop, we would be very grateful if you could send them into school.
Summer school club 2016
Our school held a week long summer club in August for different pupils in school. The pupils took part in many different activities and visits including: Creative, outdoor, water, pampering and sensory activities, visits to the Butterfly Farm, Shepards Place Farm, Mini-Golf, Sunnybank Ice Cream Farm, Boston Park Maize Maze, Hatfield Water Park and Cosmos Restaurant.
World Book Day 2016
Each year the whole school celebrates World Book Day, by learning about the same story. This year we chose ‘Alice in Wonderland’. The pupils learnt the story through cross-curricula links. We held a ‘Mad Hatters’ tea party, and each class made a prop or a game to bring with them to the party.
Some of our pupils learnt a creative dance that they performed at our party, and pupils from Ash Hill Academy came over to help serve food and drinks, which were kindly donated by our parents.
Everyone made a huge effort to dress up, and we are looking forward to next years theme!
Pupils from KS2, KS3 and KS4 visited ‘Kingswood’ activity centre in Dearne Valley for a two night residential stay in May, to try out lots of new activities and develop many skills, such as team work, resilience, persistence etc. It was also a great opportunity for our pupils to develop their independence. We were extremely proud of our pupils, who were very brave, completing activities such as abseiling, rock climbing, zip lining and canoeing!
