Learning outside the classroom


All of our Year 4 children attend swimming lessons at Arcadia Leisure Centre every Thursday with school. Learning about water safety and knowing how to keep safe in water is a life skill, and as such is recognised and measured in the same ways as other key subjects. Please ensure all Year 4 children remember to bring in their Swim Kit every Thursday.

The aims of the swimming lessons are:

*to ensure all Rushbrook  Primary Academy children (Year 4 and above) can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25metres.

*Use a range of strokes effectively

*Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations

Tree Planting
The Woodland Trust gifted Rushbrook 420 trees.  On the 22nd November Manchester City of Trees came to help plant them with the children. They will hopefully help screen the perimeter fence and make the outdoors feel more contained once they start to grow. The children really enjoyed getting outside and are looking forward to seeing their trees grow.

Ghyll Head
A group of year 6 children spent five days in the Lake District at Ghyll Head. They enjoyed a variety of activities including rock climbing, canoeing, zip wires, caving and much more. Everyone worked really well together to make sure they completed the activities to the best of their abilites.
