Special opportunities for the children at CPJA
Forest Schools - Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment.
A specialist French Teacher - Throughout your child’s time at Castleford Park Junior Academy, they will have the opportunity to work with our specialist French teacher. They will develop their listening and oral skills through mastering new vocabulary and practicing using conversational French.
A PE specialist – At Castleford Park Junior Academy we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of all children. We believe that a varied PE curriculum and a range of extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on pupil concentration, attitude and academic achievement.
Drama Specialist - In Years 3 and 4, pupils have the opportunity to work with Sarah, Director of Yew Tree Theatre company and also an author and drama specialist. Within these workshops- as well as helping them grow in confidence- the children develop their team work, speaking and listening and empathy skills. The vocabulary they develop and the activities they take part in unlock their imagination and enhance their writing.
Music Specialist - Throughout their time at school, pupils will have an opportunity to work with a music specialist who will develop their performance and composition skills - linked to the current topic. Learning from a talented musician raises aspirations and and confidence for our pupils.
