Curriculum Enrichment

At Birch Hill we belive that enriching the curriculum is vital for learning to 'stick'.  We provide an excellent  range of activities throughout the year that both support the children's learning and that are enjoyable. These include visitors, workshops and drama groups coming into school, themed and dressing up days, plus a range of visits out of school.  In addition, we also two annual residential trips; Year 4 trip to Outwood Centre in Bracknell and Year 6 trip to Rhos Y Gwaliau Outdoor Education Centre in Wales.



In addition to trips and visits, the children will have a range of opportunities to perform in a range of productions while at Birch Hill.

Badgers Retreat & our Edible Playground is concerned with process rather than an end product.  Edible Playground is a programme from UK charity Trees for Cities.  Badgers Retreat has been transformed into a vibrant outdoor teaching gardens that enables children to have hands-on learning and for them to get excited about growing and eating healthy food.  In addition, this gives the children important time to develop social skills and respect for their natural surroundings.  Food grown in the Edible Playground is then cooked in the school kitchen.
