On a Friday afternoon at Colindale, the children from years 2 to 6 dedicate the last hour of their day to widening their horizons on an activity of their choice. Over a 5/6 week block, they are offered a variety of activities that will provide them with new learning experiences, where they are able to learn and develop a new skill. The opportunities range from learning how to play netball, to learning Japanese. Staff choose to teach a subject they have a specialism in and therefore the quality of each activity is excellent. The children look forward to each week and most sessions come to a lovely finale of either; a great piece of work, bags full of new knowledge and experiences, or an exciting ending, for example campfire songs round a campfire with marshmallows!
