Extended learning and enrichment
At Marlborough Road Academy, we believe that learning should extend throughout every aspect of the school day and that children should be exposed to as many rich and varied experiences as possible. For this reason, clubs and groups operate during lunchtime and after school, often in mixed age groups. These include football, netball, athletics, cross country, construction, art, den-building, go-karting, street dance, roller skating and outdoor cooking (to name but a few!).
We also build a wide variety of trips, visits and guest speakers into our curriculum. These include Viking days at Tatton Park, Formby beach parties, visits by the Owl Man, orienteering in Delamere Forest, Shakespearean performances at the Victoria Baths, farm experiences... again to name a few!
All of these activities help to develop our children’s language and vocabulary, as well as providing them with many opportunities to develop their teamwork; creativity and problem-solving; self-management; and communication skills.
