Extra Curricular Opportunities
At New Cangle we recognise the importance of the wider curriculum. We value opportunities for children to take part in extra-curricular clubs, national events, engage with visitors and go on educational visits. Unfortunately, during 2020 and 2021 most of these opportunities have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. We hope that our usual wider curriculum opportunities can be taking place again in the future and we will be looking to publish more details of all the opportunities that we offer.
Children can take part in a variety of after school clubs that take place in school. Clubs that have taken place have included, multi-sports, dance, gymnastics, netball club and the school football team. Lunch time clubs such as computing club and lego builders club have also taken place.
We enjoy having visitors into school on a variety of topics. We have had visitors into whole school assembly, such as police officers or a Parliament Outreach Officer. Visitors also come into school to work with individual classes about topics they are learning, such as the Haverhill Historical Society visiting Year 6 who were learning about Victorian Haverhill, or a visitor to Year 4 to compliment their music curriculum.
Children have the opportunity to take part in events such as national competitions or fund raising campaigns, such as Children in Need or Red Nose Day. We are also proud to have sent a choir to the One Voice concert at the O2 Arena in London for several years in a row.
Educational Visits and Learning Outside the Classroom
At New Cangle we like children to take part in learning outside the classroom. We try to stay local as much as possible, in order to keep costs to a minimum for parents. Educational visits range from trips to East Town Park, Haverhill to visits to museums in Cambridge.
Children at New Cangle have previously taken part in the following residential visits:
Year 4 - 1 night stay at Burwell House, Cambridgeshire, with a focus on outdoor learning.
Year 5 - 1 night camp out on the school field, with a focus on outdoor learning.
Year 6 - 2 night stay at PGL Bawdsey Manor, Suffolk, with a multi-activity focus
