‘Minerva Moments’ is a scheme aimed at encouraging and challenging our children to try some potentially new experiences, many of which are inspired by the National Trust's 50 things to do before you are 11 ¾. While we attempt to give all children the opportunity to experience all of the ‘moments’ within the school year, we also encourage parents to support and help them in doing so. We run an awards assembly at the end of the school year to recognise and reward those children who have achieved their bronze, silver or gold target.
Each child has their own 'Minerva Moments' booklets, kept safe by their teacher until the end of the year. Every time they complete an activity it is stamped in the book. When they complete one at home they can take a photo and bring it in to show it to the class teacher.
