Continuously developed, or completed, the extra-curricular activities are changed each term. We will update the information on this page when they do, so please return often to find out what is happening each day at Mandeville!
Each year we plan a number of event weeks for the children to participate in. These have included ‘Enterprise Week’ where the children have the opportunity to design, make and sell a product of their choice in order to develop their understanding of business and enterprise. In addition, we have a ‘Creative Arts Week’ where the whole school takes part in a wide range of art, music and drama activities linked to a specific theme.
As well as these planned weeks, there are a number of special days such as Science Day, World Book Day, Sports Day, Open Afternoon and Concerts.
Visits and Visitors
Each class goes out on visits on a termly basis. These include local trips to The Rivers Orchard and businesses in Sawbridgeworth, as well as further away venues, including Paradise Wildlife Park, Duxford, Mersea Island, The Houses of Parliament, Natural History Museum and The Science Museum.
We also welcome visitors to the school who work with the children on various curriculum areas. These have included Theatre in Education groups, charity representatives, sporting personalities and musicians.
Children in Year 6 have the chance to go on a residential visit each year, which helps increase their confidence, independence and team working skills.
