BOOST Archive 2021-2022

BOOST is our enrichment programme offering a range of activities to provide our children with excellent learning opportunities. These opportunities will allow them to develop new skills, interests and friendships and all link well to the Curriculum for Wales. 

The children will work in groups of up to 15 and every Friday morning will engage in an activity.  These activities will last for a period of 4 weeks and then the children will move on to another activity.  Activities may be indoors, outdoors, on site and off site and can be seen below.
