The Cambridge Park Academy Summer School has proven be a valuable resource for Parents/carers and pupils. Due to building work taking place in the main Academy building Summer school took place at various venues and ran for 5 consecutive Wednesdays throughout the summer holidays.
The emphasis was on the students having fun and giving them the opportunity to engage with their peers and support staff in a less formal setting.
A range of trips and activities was planned and organised to help enhance the student’s social and emotional development. The younger children enjoyed a trip to Cleethorpes sand pit which also included a ride on the light railway. A trip to Hall Farm Park near Caistor which included the students enjoying a tractor ride to meet and feed the cattle. Students discovered all of the different outdoor activities. Seeing, feeding and touching a variety of small animals. There was also time to play in the indoor play area.
A day at Centre 4 sports hall included a group of Archery coaches who delivered their expertise in the sport; some children received a medal for their determination, effort and behaviour. Activities also included a bouncy castle, mini bikes, and a sensory ball pool.
Two Arts and craft days took place at the Cromwell Road Campus, culminating with the children helping to prepare a picnic lunch and parents were invited to join.
The older students also enjoyed a variety of activities. A tour around Grimsby Town football stadium, followed by sports activities delivered by GTFC coaches was held at Clee Sports Hall.
An alternative Sports day took place at the YMCA which was delivered by the Academy’s PE department.
A trip to the Deep included a tour around the Deep and a workshop all about Penguins kept the students engaged.
They also enjoyed a Dance workshop. All of the children were keen to show off the different Dance movements that they had learnt from a set theme and they then took great pride in showing these off to the rest of the group. Summer School for the older students finished with a visit to the Toby Hainton Carvery `Chef School’ the children all participated in playing games that were food related with Tom the Head Chef, this was followed by a carvery lunch and the students joined the queue with fellow customers. After lunch Tom gave them a tour of the kitchen and preparation areas, explaining the process of how the food reaches the carvery.
