Enrichment Events and Activities
Afterschool Dance Club
Our children have a fabulous time at our afterschool dance club.
Christmas at Heatherwood 22
The chicks began to hatch on Wednesday 16th March. The last on hatched on Thursday lunch time.
They snuggle together to keep warm.
They spent the weekend at Sam's house having snuggles from her children.
Lots of cuddles for the chicks as they grow.
The Nexus Trust have asked schools to create a video to show case the physical activities that we do and with a focus on dancing. Here is our contribution that will be shared with the other schools.
Festive Fun at Christmas Time December 2021
All of at Heatherwood were so looking forward to sharing Christmas with you in the form of a live show in school. But, that was not possible, and so we have been beavering away to produce a video from each class so that we can still share some of our festive fun.
All the videos can be found on the enrichment page and in each of the Class blogs too.

This year we have supported Children in Need by getting involved with the Countryfile Ramble. Classes ventured out into the local Sandal Beat Woods to explore and experience the sensory joys of Autumn. We have been raising money via our new ParentPay link to the our Children in Need donations account. Please donate here and enjoy the video of when we went down to the woods today!
As part of our Celebrations of Lights week, we welcomed some friends, Yuliya and Mooda, into school who taught us all about Diwali. They brought in a range of artifacts, clothes, authentic snacks, insence, as well as showing some basic dance moves too! Here is a video to demonstrate only some of the wonderful experiences from the day.
On Thursday 15th July we enjoyed our Seaside Day. It was a topic themed event that was a wonderful way to finish our Summer term curricular topic. Here is a video showcasing some of the amazing fun and learning that we got up to.
Making Art with our Friends
DARTS have been working with all our students over a number of weeks, playing music and making some stunning pieces of art. They have produced a lovely little video that summarises some of the sessions that they did with us. Take a look:
As part of our activities on the run up to Christmas, we organised a Christingle. All of our students in school made their own Christingle orange and then shared their work with the rest of the school in our own Christingle service in the afternoon. This video shows the festive fun we had making them.
