We have worked hard to ensure that we have some excellent facilities here at Stanley Park Juniors, which enhance our children’s learning across the curriculum, and help to provide an exciting and stimulating school environment.
We have a fully equipped ICT Suite, plus interactive whiteboards, computers and visualisers in every classroom. We also have class sets of chromebooks plus Ipads which are used for activities across the curriculum. in As a school we aim to make full use of the comprehensive online learning packages which are available to us, such as My Maths, TT Rockstars, Spelling Shed, Doodle Maths/ENglish and Google Classroom. The internet is also regularly used by the children for research in class.
We have excellent well-stocked class libraries which we are able to update and replenish on a regular basis with the commission we earn through our bi-annual Scholastic Book Fair. We also have a Learning Resource Centre which provides a vast range of fiction and non-fiction books, as well as excellent computer facilities for whole class use. Children can order books to borrow from the library online and leave reviews for other children to read.
The Green Zone is a specially designed outdoor learning area which includes a pond, meadow, two raised beds and a wide variety of plants, trees and shrubs. We use this space, along with the polytunnel and vegetable garden, to provide the children with a range of outdoor learning activities and children access it every day – whatever the weather. This area enables us to provide outdoor learning opportunities as much as we can across the curriculum. Activities include food growing and tasting, investigating the flora and fauna in the Green Zone, art and craft activities - all supporting the science curriculum and developing the children’s understanding, enjoyment and care of the natural world.
As a school we aim to encourage the children to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle. We have some great play equipment which they can use, including monkey bars and low level ropes; plus a wide variety of children’s exercise equipment.
There are plenty of games resources for use during lunchtime play, such as balls, skipping ropes, hula hoops, & tennis rackets. We employ an adult play leader who provides the opportunity for team games during lunchtimes. We also have a trained team of year 6s who act as Sports Leaders, to lead active games for the younger children.
We have netball courts in our playground and are able to make use of the tennis courts in Stanley Park at lunch times. We are also lucky to have access to the field during our outdoor PE lessons, after school clubs (e.g football, athletics), and also during our summer term sports day.
We are pleased to be able to offer a particularly wide variety of extra-curricular clubs ranging from music to sports, arts to languages. Full details of the clubs which are running this term can be found on our “Clubs” page.
