At Towngate Primary Academy, the curriculum encompasses a wide range of learning experiences for the children. Children learn effectively through direct experience, and we offer opportunities for pupils of all ages to enhance their learning experiences by bringing the curriculum alive and making their learning more meaningful.
We achieve this through well chosen curriculum visits, workshops, INSPIRE events and topic related theme days (including World Book Day, Careers Week and Science Week). Examples of the trips include visits to Kingswood Residential sites, Eureka, Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Murton Park and Thackeray Medical Museum. We also personally invite visitors to the school – including authors, local community groups, artists, and parents – who we believe will enhance our curriculum. We are proud to offer a range of extra-curricular activities for children to participate in and develop their own personal interests. Some clubs operate pre-school opening times, others run after-school. These are some of the clubs we have on offer throughout the course of the year:
- Drama Club Multi Sports Club
- Football Club The School Newspaper
- Eco Team Club Gardening Club
- The School Council Choir
- Recorder Club Cross-stitch Club
- Art Club Netball Club
