Wonderful Things provides innovative extra-curricular activities to the children of Lancashire, delivered out of school hours, but within the safe environment of local primary schools. Project leaders provide a particularly wide spectrum of themes to the activities so that children are inspired and motivated to engage in challenging activities that they would not usually have access to. Activities are varied and range from the arts (eg: Pirate Dance Day, Theatre Day, being a DJ) to science and technology (eg: Lego Day, Forensic Science Day, National Science Week) to the outdoors (eg: Forest Day, Crazy Sports Day) the practical (Baking Day, Journalism Workshops) and the unusual (Parliamentary Day, Didgeridoo Day!) These opportunities inspire the children and feed into their social and academic attainment, and the impact of this has been commented on by both parents, educators and by Ofsted!
