Things for children to do before leaving NWPA

At Northlands Wood Primary Academy, we think there are some activities and opportunities all children should have before they leave us for Secondary School. Many of these will create memories that the children will recall long after the actual event. Moreover, it will be these activities that the children will often relate to in the classroom and and this will in turn enhance their learning. Clearly the school cannot provide all these activities so we therefore encourage parents and carers to consider these for days out or free afternoons.
