Enrichment Curriculum

On a Tuesday afternoon from 3pm to 4pm, Year 7 students will participate in an enrichment programme which is a compulsory part of their timetable.

A

Student Investor Challenge led by Mr Rutter

 

The year will start by learning about how to research businesses and the basics of investment. Then, in teams of no more than four, you will invest a virtual £100,000 in a selection of the 100 most successful companies in the UK. Each week you will research to then buy and sell stocks in these companies to make as much money as possible. In July, the team that has the most money invested will be crowned Champion Student Investors!

B

LAMDA Grade 3 Acting Programme led by Mr Walsh

During LAMDA enrichment, you will develop your skills in Acting and Drama whilst working towards acting examinations. A LAMDA Exam is the drama equivalent of a music grade. Like music grades, LAMDA Exams culminate at Grade 8 and at Harris Wimbledon, students will begin with Grade 3. Students will work on both monologues and group pieces and each term will finish with a showcase of student work. 

C

Photography led by Miss Kent

Students will be developing the knowledge to record and experiment through modern tools and processes; refining work as well as showing influence and links to cultural, traditional and modern artists and themes. By taking photography enrichment in Year 7, you will gain insight into how to use a DSLR camera for an array of uses, from sports photography to portraiture and more experimental art-photography. You will also be taught how to use Photoshop and may even have enough time to get an insight into producing animations.

D

French led by Miss Ortega

In this programme you will develop confidence in the four key skills of the target language (listening, speaking, reading and writing).  By using the target language you will develop a better understanding of grammar and extend your vocabulary knowledge. You will also learn by watching French movies, taking part in games and learning about the French culture through presentations. 

E

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Programme led by Miss Bolt

We will be doing practical activities where you must use your knowledge of the four subjects to design and create useful contraptions and ingenious solutions to problems. Projects will include tasks such as designing a wind powered machine that can lift a weighted cup off the floor, building a Dyson vacuum and designing, building and testing a way of moving tomatoes that won’t squash them. University STEM ambassadors will be invited to run one-off sessions as well as longer projects.

F

Running Programme led by Mr Riches

In recent years the interest in running across the UK has increased dramatically with 386,050 people applying for the London 2018 marathon. This national enthusiasm for running is something we would like to develop with the students of Harris Academy Wimbledon. Enjoying physical exercise and maintaining a lifelong participation in sport is vital in keeping fit and healthy. You will learn different training methods, routines, running styles, and the importance of exercise on the human body.

G

Yoga for beginners led by Miss Turner

This yoga course is suitable for everyone! It will take you through the basic postures which are the foundations of yoga practice. It will help you improve your flexibility and strength as well as being a great way to relax .Finally it’s really good fun!

H

Creating the School Magazine led by Miss Pocock

If you are a budding journalist and want to showcase your writing skills then the school magazine is the place to do this.  You will become the editors and writers of the very first Harris Wimbledon Magazine. You will be able to help celebrate all of your peers’ achievements, let everyone know what exciting things have been going on in school and write opinion articles about topics you are passionate about.
