WIDER OPPORTUNITIES


At Sir Harry's we organise many enrichment activities to ensure that our curriculum is both challenging and exciting!


Overnight Camp

In June 2019, we organised an overnight camp for children in years 1, 5 and 6.  Everyone had a fantastic time!


Big Write

In June 2019, we had a Primary Big Write.  Our children came to school and found the field had been sealed off.  Mr Mabvumbe (from road traffic) told the children that the City Council wanted to build a road through the school.  The children were very against the idea and were motivated to write some letters of complaint!  They were very relieved when they heard later that the road was not going to be built through Sir Harry's.
