CHILDREN have been trying their hands at construction, cooking, art, music and much more during special sessions to give them a taste of the real world.

Golden Time every Friday afternoon at Alverstoke Infants sees dozens of boys and girls exploring a range of extra-curricular activities.

Marion Clist, headteacher at the Gosport school which is rated outstanding by Ofsted, said: ‘At this school, if you have a talent for something we want to give you the opportunity every week to excel in it and have fun.

‘That could be art, or music or sports – and the nice thing about Golden Time is that we mix up the year groups so children of different ages learn from each other.

‘We’ve been running Golden Time for about five years and it is something all the children really look forward to.

‘We’re also very lucky to have fantastic parents and volunteers from St Vincent College, for example, who help out.’
