Summer school provides creative and educational activities which motivate and challenge children of all ages and abilities during their holidays.
The programmes are fun, filled with excitement, brain stimulation, teamwork skills & confidence building Children reflect on their achievements and engage with learning in a safe, nurturing and purposeful environment.
What better way is there to spend your holiday? Take a look at our Summer School Learning Journeys…
I have loved Summer School especially all the challenges it really made my brain tick and think! We needed to work as a team all tightly holding each string so that we didn’t drop the ball. We talked to each other to be successful when moving and completed the challenge after several tries! The egg challenge was the best – I made a parachute for my egg landing! I now know about large surface area and air resistance!
It was really nice being invited to a presentation about the children’s learning and it was nice for me working and helping my children with the challenge. They want to do the egg challenge again at home!
Art 4 Maths
Summer School made Place Value easy to understand. I made an art sculpture that represented a number and I was able to work out other children’s decimal numbers by looking at their art work! I’m not normally good at Maths but I am really clever doing these numbers, I used a Place Value holder to help me make my number 235.31 and then I turned it into art and I did it right, on my own! Why can’t Maths always be this fun!
I would have learnt things here at Summer school – My daughter has just taught me about decimals! Wow!
Amazing provision, keeping children busy and learning in the holidays – he can’t wait for next year!
My son has loved every day of Summer School, he would tell me all the lovely things he had been doing each day, it really tired him out but he was always raring to go next day! Thank you!
Me and My World
We all mapped our journey to Summer school thinking of different symbols and using a range of media, it was really cool. It made me think about my future journey and the path I want to follow – I want to be an astronaut!
This activity was effective and highlighted my child’s dream job, thinking to his future.
Raised aspirations – I learnt my daughter wants to become a vet.
It built my confidence when I played my guitar at the Summer School presentation, everyone complimented on how impressed and talented I was! The African drums were so cool, we all had a different beat and rhythm to play, we worked hard with our timings!
It was so nice playing the drums with my son he was concentrating so hard!
Proud parent watching my boy play two tunes on his guitar that he taught himself!
Thank you Summer School for the opportunities you provided. Great Work!
Tale Telling – Romeo and Juliet
I am a successful learner because before I had never heard of William Shakespeare, today I know he was a famous play write who lived in Stratford and he wrote a love story called Romeo and Juliet but it ended in tragedy because they both died for love. It was exciting learning about Romeo and Juliet as my big brother is learning about him and he’s at Secondary School! I really liked making new friends and working with them through drama to re-enact the play. It was great when we changed the ending! Romeo got there just in time as Juliet awoke from drinking the sleeping potion and they lived happily in secret, from their hated families. Learning Literature… For never was a story of more woe Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.
Making the impossible, possible! Watching my son willing and wanting to play Romeo and quote Shakespeare of his own accord… Goosebumps!
The stories were great! From Romeo and Juliet to the Book Worm reading challenge. My child who purposely forgets his reading books for school, was taking in books from home and reading with the teachers, children from his school and other new friends he had made. So proud of him and glad he has been part of Crow Lane Summer school.
