Activity Passports

Activity Passports

At Hove Junior school we feel passionate about opportunities to learn and try new things both in the classroom and outside of school.  To encourage this we have taken inspiration from the Department of Education and put together suggested sets of activities that run alongside our curriculum.  Together, these activities make up a passport for children into the world around them.  They could be challenges to weave into holidays in new places or weekend goals that tie in with classroom learning.  As they go through each year group, children can tick off as many as possible, keeping records of their achievements and the adventures they have enjoyed, sharing their experiences and inspiring others.  It is a chance for families to enjoy new challenges together.

Please find below a list of possible local locations to try some of the activities.
