Nearing the end of an exciting CEW week

Today signals the end of an exciting and busy Curriculum Enrichment Week for students at Pool Academy.


Students have been baking, crafting, biking, dancing, playing sports, exploring and learning about new cultures throughout the week.

It was beautiful weather on the Isles of Scilly when students arrived to camp on St Martin’s. During the week they enjoyed swimming, visiting historical sites and exploring the other islands.


The weather was also good for those on the Brittany trip as they explored French culture as well as visit Disneyland Paris.

A teacher, who was on the trip, said: “We had an amazing day at Disneyland. The weather was stunning and students had a great time in both Walt Disney studios and park.”

A group of children visited a variety of attractions on the Midlands trip. They enjoyed rollercoasters at Drayton Manor and chocolate at Cadbury World.

Rachel Timmis, teacher, said: “We had a lovely tour of Cadbury World and enjoyed lots of free chocolate before an afternoon of shopping.”

Art by the Sea saw a textile expert come in on Thursday to teach children how to weave. Two days previously they had visited the Tate Gallery in St Ives. Elsewhere in the school students were creating bags and wallets using the plastic fusion technique.

Budding musicians were busy learning how to play and sing a song called Riptide on their instruments before recording it.


Emily Cromey, Music teacher, said: “Students had the morning to learn a song and then we recorded them playing and singing. I think their recording was really nice.”

Dance Fever group had Harvey from 4Real Dance and Fitness drop in on Wednesday to show the girls some of his tricks. The group have been dancing all week and are due to hold a performance today (Friday).

There were also a number of other experiences for the children including visiting Bodmin Jail, Paradise Park, game making, film making and adrenaline activities.
