Extending Learning after school. Here at Immanuel we encourage children to sign up for their ‘Passport to Learning.’ This encourages children to try new experiences, develop new interests and acquire new skills.
Who can join?
Any child from the ages of 5 – 14 who enjoys learning new things outside of normal school hours. It could include our after school club, a club attended locally, or a family outing to a library, museum, place on interest.
How does it work?
Children are given their own ‘Passport to Learning’, in which they write the name of the activity they attended or visited and the date on which the activity took place. The passport is regularly handed-in at school, where it is stamped to acknowledge each session of new learning. This builds a log of the hours of learning which children have taken part in outside of the normal school day. Over time, the number of stamps contribute to the award of a certificate at a graduation ceremony at South Bank University.
What happens next?
Those children that have gained 30 stamps will graduate with a Bronze Award. 65 stamps earn them a Silver Award and 100 stamps a Gold Award. Beyond this, graduates work to earn higher level diplomas. If your child is in Year 6, their passport can be carried over to be continued at secondary school.
If you have any queries, please contact Mrs Barbara Jones-Henry at Immanuel and St Andrew Primary School.
Sky Skills Studio
Children, who are a part of the Children’s University programme, attended Sky Skills Studio Academy, during the February half term holiday. They spent an exciting day there creating and recording their own short film. The children where shown how to use professional TV cameras and shown how to edit and add special effects to their recording. They were also able to visit the Sky Newsroom to see where and how the Sky News is gathered and then broadcasted.
A few quotes from children;
“I liked everything we did including working with other people. It was a fun experience”
“I liked doing special effects at Sky Studio”
“I enjoyed making the film and watching it. It was very fun when we were acting”
