Fun acad­emy pro­gramme helps to ex­pand learn­ing

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

CHIL­DREN have been tak­ing part in ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties as part of a sum­mer pro­gramme.

The pupils from Bolling­ton St John’s CE Pri­mary School had a go at pho­tog­ra­phy and played golf dur­ing the acad­emy pro­gramme, which has launched for the sum­mer term.

Each year the chil­dren choose an ex­pe­ri­ence they would like to take part in from a list of ex­tracur­ric­u­lar op­tions. They at­tend the acad­emy of their choice on Wed­nes­day morn­ing un­til the end of term.

This year chil­dren have been able to choose from 15 acad­e­mies in­clud­ing craft ac­tiv­i­ties, golf at Shrigley Hall, a po­lice acad­emy run by PCSOs and a pho­tog­ra­phy acad­emy by Lumi Stu­dios in Mac­cles­field.

Two stu­dents from the jour­nal­ism acad­emy pho­tographed the ac­tion for the school web­site.

Head­teacher Me­lanie Walker said: “The last acad­emy day is a cel­e­bra­tion of all that the chil­dren have learnt and a chance to thank the peo­ple in our com­mu­nity that took part.

“The acad­e­mies give the chil­dren the chance to try new ex­pe­ri­ences. It’s a chance for our school com­mu­nity to take part and come to­gether to celebrate the chil­dren’s achieve­ments.”
