School holiday programmes
Samuel Rhodes provides an exciting Summer scheme where children take part in activities such as Music, Arts & Crafts, cooking & Sports such as tag rugby, rounders, basketball, football and sensory circuits with Greenhouse sports.
We go on trips to places such as Freightliner's farm, Clissold Park & Highbury Fields.
This holiday scheme provides children with exciting new opportunities along with healthy eating classes, life skills and teamwork. This year the children had a fantastic time along with the adults and we cannot wait to run it again.
This scheme was funded by Islington HAF Summer programme.
Sadly, this year due to COVID we were not able run our successful 7-week Transition Programme as normal.
This year we ran a virtual Transition Programme, where all pupils transitioning to Samuel Rhodes Secondary had 6 virtual 1 hour lessons 10am-11am, with different Secondary Teachers. This gave the children & teacher’s the chance to get to know each other as well as getting to see some classrooms.
The lessons that the children took part in:
• Food Technology
We also organised a Transition week in August, for all Year 7 children transferring to Samuel Rhodes Secondary. This gives the children & their Parents/Carers the chance to come to Samuel Rhodes Secondary school, during the summer holidays to take part in team building exercises, meet other pupils & parents who are transferring to Samuel Rhodes Secondary in the new academic year. We stayed in our own bubbles and only mixed when we went outside.
We did our Year 7 Parents/Carers meetings virtually this year for all Year 7 parents, which gave parents the chance to meet other parents, ask questions or raise any concerns or worries they might have about their child transferring to secondary school.
This programme is sponsored by the DfE summer scheme funding.
