TVAP : Arts Award - Explore and Discover Artists

Monday, May 14, 2018 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM (BST) More Information →

The next Expanding Horizons meet-up at Thames Valley Adventure Playground in Maidenhead.  

ARTS AWARD at TVAP

The Arts Award is a nationally recognised award and qualification. It’s great for Home Educators because there is a huge amount of flexibility and opportunity for the children to follow their own passions and ideas. No writing is required. Kids can ‘document’ their findings with video, audio files or with an adult working as a ‘scribe’ on their behalf. More information is available at the Expanding Horizons website.

Session timetable:

11.00 - 11.30: Whole group activity.

11.30 - 12.30 : Discover an artist (we are exploring the idea of inviting an external artist to visit TVAP)

12.30 - 2.30 : Freeplay & possible extended activities around the theme. 

2.30 - 3pm. Clean the site for exit at by 3pm - all must help pls. 

Since September 2016 the team at TVAP have been running structured activities at the beginning of each Home Ed session. The playground, bikes, soft play and other freeplay activities are closed until 12.30

If you are on site between 11am and 12.15 please could you strongly encourage your children to engage with these activities. We encourage you to be engaed too, in order to create a focused environment. Those who don’t want to take part should come later in the day. If families had intended to join in but, for whatever reason, it doesn't work out on the day we suggest adults and children find a quiet spot and engage in a book or similar activity in order to minimise distraction for those who are focused on the structured sessions. We want to support freedom of choice but also embrace the opportunities for group learning and working together.
