We are lucky to have lots of outdoor space at Houghton. We have a large playing field and plenty of apparatus to play on in the playgrounds including our trim trail and pirate ship. We also have a large environmental area which we use as an outdoor classroom and where we grow everything from flowers to vegetables. As part of our Eco-school aspirations we have provided habitats for wildlife and all the pupils participate in environmental issues both locally and nationally.
Robins (Reception) have their own outdoor learning area which is directly accessed from their classroom.
We provide a range of enhanced curricular activities that will enrich your child’s experience. These vary from year to year but can include Choir, Musical Instruments including Guitar, Piano & Cello, Football, Lace Club, Music Dance & Drama and Netball. Some of these groups run at lunchtimes and some are after school. Some activities are only available for older year groups and some only run during the Summer Term.
