Maths Enrichment Day
Thursday 23rd April 2020; 10.00am - 2.30pm for boys and girls in Years 4 and 5.
Our Maths Enrichment Day is designed to inspire children of all abilities to enjoy learning Maths. Rounds will include investigating Fibonacci numbers, developing spatial awareness and having a go at code breaking.
Schools are invited to bring one team of six children made up of boys and girls in Years 4 and 5. The event aims to inspire children to enjoy Maths and introduce them to mathematics outside of ordinary classroom learning through fun and alternative resources.
Maths Enrichment will take place at Nottingham Girls’ High School. All visiting schools will need to bring a packed lunch with them.

Circus Poetry Day
Tuesday 19th May 2020; 10.00am - 2.30pm for boys and girls in Years 4 and 5.
As part of Nottingham Poetry Festival 2020, we are delighted to offer a day dedicated to writing and sharing poetry. Following from last year’s frightful theme of Monsters, 2020 will be inspired by CIRCUS, with guest poet Anne Holloway joining us.
Circus Poetry invites schools to select four of their talented poets and/or literacy enthusiasts from Years 4 and 5. The event aims to equip children with the necessary leadership skills and confidence to be poetry ambassadors for their school as they will then lead a writing project to their schoolmates following this initial workshop. Schools will make their own decisions as to how their Poetry Ambassadors will deliver this project – a class, a year group, or the whole school. Poetry Ambassadors will later select their top poems to be published in the Nottingham Poetry Festival, Circus Poetry Anthology 2020.
Circus Poetry will take place at Nottingham Girls’ High School with registration at 9.45am and a prompt finish of 2.30pm. Attending staff and children will need to bring a packed lunch.
