Richmond Park Summer School
RPS Summer School is the ideal complementary activity to finish the school year. Based on a successful system of alternating workshops, each participant will work, on a daily basis, in different activities chosen by educators according to the different age groups. Our main objective is for children to develop a series of skills that will help them in the future, while, at the same time, they have fun and improve their interpersonal relationships.
We have tried to create a balanced programme which guarantees very high levels of motivation and participation. Combining physical activities, through sport, with others that require mental agility, we shall ensure the children are both entertained and helped to develop as individuals. Our programme will focus on the development of some of key skills:

By year groups
When working on the selection and organisation of the workshops, our teachers and coordinators have in mind several different variables: the age of participants, moment in the day, physical load, activity duration, preparation and collection of items, variety, etc.
Age is, clearly the most important variable, and determines the specific content of the activities. e The children will be divided into two main groups:
From 2 to 4 years of age
The youngest children will have their own dedicated space, to enjoy a daily exclusive programme, guided and cared for at all moments by the same specialist team. Our EYFS specialists take care of their safeguarding and well-being, while prompting them to participate in, and enjoy the different experiences s and reach the set objectives.
From 5 to 12 years of age
This group will enjoy far more autonomy, participating in many different workshops organised throughout the school’s facilities. Each workshop will be led by one or more instructors, who will identify key objectives in their planning to careful planning , complement those worked on during the school year.
IMPORTANT: this is an example of a normal day. Activities may vary for sports workshops. Children will practice different sporting disciplines.
This stage of our Summer School 2021 is offered to children born in 2018, 2017 and 2016.
Starting the day with some form of physical activity is very beneficial to the children. The benefits are not limited to the development of chid.ren’s motor skills, coordination and balance, but also help them relax, improve their concentration and just have fun.
This is one of the most entertaining workshops, within which pupils can be both creative and, at the same time, practise their English.
Here the children can enjoy their little water park, participating in a wide variety of games and structured activities. They will enjoy themselves so much and also keep fresh and fit.
This workshop will include a wide range of entertaining and motivating activities, all geared towards Immersion in the English language through games, songs, audiovisual experiences, storytelling , drama etc.
In our school curriculum we give great importance to drama as a subject. In our drama workshop we shall be developing a wide range of skills, which will be of increasing importance in our pupils’ lives. Through improvisation, performance, public speaking, presentations and other creative activities participants will develop both their abilities and self- confidence.
All our sports workshops have the same basic aims, pursued by diverse means. Apart from achieving the specific objectives and learning the rules of each sport, participants will also develop the main physical skills: resistance, speed, strength and agility. There will also be a strong emphasis on personal effort, teamwork, and healthy competition. Key sports will include : basketball, football, badminton, rounders, hockey and handball.
New technologies are rapidly gaining greater influence over our lives. The main objective of this workshop will be to develop key technological skills, according to the children’s ages, by means of activities designed by our specialist teacher.
The water sports will conform to the established norms. Under constant adult supervision, the children will take part in a series of activities which will be both fun and refreshing.
The main objective of this workshop will be to discover the artist inside every child. For this reason, it will be one of the most entertaining and enjoyable. The children’s work will be based on direct experience and make the most of their natural creativity. At home, everyone will be able to share their achievements and give them the recognition they deserve.
