Extra-Curricular Activites

During the academic year, the school runs a variety of lunchtime and extra-curricular (after-school) clubs. There is a wide-range of interests being catered for and as a school we are excited to be offering such wonderful opportunities for the children.

Attendance at Lunchtime clubs is organised in school by the relevant staff member and your child does not need to complete any forms to attend; they simply need to turn up at the club and enjoy! Attendance at after-school clubs, that are run by external providers, is organised directly with the named adult for that particular club; this can be done through email communication (see table below).

When notifying parents and children of the after-school clubs that are on offer each term, the 'expression of interest' letter to indicate your child’s interest in a particular club is issued.

Parents and children will be notified by letter if they have been successful at gaining a place at one of the clubs. Where interest exceeds the permitted number for a club, names will have to be selected randomly.

Below are the details of all of the clubs that will be running in Term 5 (16th April to 25th May). You can also find a link to the upcoming clubs on offer in Term 6 at the bottom of this page.

 

Applications for Term 5 after-school clubs have now CLOSED.

Please see below for setails of upcoming clubs in Term 6.

Further Information

Running Club

We would love for as many children as possible to engage with this project, especially the children who do not consider themselves 'sporty'. Our running group is for EVERYONE. There is no competition, just friendship, fun and encouragement.

We will introduce the children to running by using games and intervals (walking and running). The children will have a super running club to attend each Monday straight after school, where they can improve their fitness and continue to develop both socially and physically.

Term 5 will be subsidised by the school so that the whole term will cost you just £12 per child. The running club will begin on the first week back of Term 5 on Monday 16th April and will continue every Monday straight after school.

Board Game Club

Our lunchtime Board Game Club has been running since June 2016 and has proved to be a great success with the children. The club is open to all children from Year 3 to 5 and we meet in the Oak Hall at 12:10pm. There is a relaxed atmosphere where children can enjoy: playing their own board game from home, a favourite from within school or even try out a new one.

In this world of technology, playing board games is fast becoming a lost pastime. Board games offer a fantastic opportunity for children and adults to spend time together. As an added bonus, board games are also rich in learning opportunities. They satisfy children’s competitive urges and the desire to master new skills and concepts, such as:

    • number and shape recognition, grouping, and counting
    • letter recognition and reading
    • visual perception and colour recognition
    • eye-hand coordination and manual dexterity

    Board games don't need to be overtly academic to be educational. However, just by virtue of playing them, board games can teach important social skills, such as: communicating verbally, sharing, waiting and taking turns, and enjoying interaction with others. Furthermore, board games can foster the ability to focus, and lengthen the child's attention span by encouraging the completion of an exciting, enjoyable game.

    We are always looking for new board games (in good condition) so if you have any not being used, please consider donating them to the school. They would be gratefully received by the children!

    Board Game Club will be resuming at the beginning of Term 2 2017-2018.

Wake Up Wednesdays!

Every Wednesday morning from 8:35-8:50am, we run Wake Up Wednesdays! This physical activity has proved to be a great hit with the children. The session is open to all children from Year R to Year 6 and it takes place in the Main Hall.

Our Wake Up Wednesdays! programme provides a very easy way to introduce daily activity into the school without impacting on precious teaching time.

It engages the children in a fun and lively way, as they learn easy routines to pop music (old and new) and have a great time!

Impact

Where it has been taking place regularly over a long and sustained period of time, schools have reported an impact in the following areas:

    • Enjoyment of school life and a sense of well-being
    • Improved co-ordination (gross motor skills then potentially impacting on fine motor skills)
    • Improved rhythm and timing
    • Increased stamina
    • Improved hydration (children get thirsty and WANT to drink more)

 

Wake Up Wednesdays! in action...

Gardening Club

Dear Parents

As some of you may be aware I am running a gardening club this term and the following term (term 4) for Year 2 and Year 4 children.  During our first session we walked around the school grounds and the children decided what they wanted to do to improve the site.

We would like to plant more spring bulbs around the entrance gate and walkway, create a welcoming plant display by our school office entrance area, refresh and replace plants in our planters on the school field and maybe even start to grow our own herbs to make a sensory garden.

If you have any plants, seeds, bulbs or tools that you would be able to donate I would be very grateful. If you do, please could you leave them with the school office and I will collect them from there.

Thank you for your support,

Mrs K. Heasman - Gardening Club Co-ordinator

Fitness Club

Fitness and Circuits Club took place in Term 3 on Wednesdays after school. We had a mixture of pupils from Year 3 to Year 6.

Each week we completed a range of exercises to music. Each pupil had one minute to complete as many of the exercises as possible. This gave us our Personal Best (PB) which we recorded.

On the following week, the aim was to improve our fitness, techniques and mindset to beat our PB. This tied-in with our Term 3 value of 'Resilience'; keeping going even when the going got tough.

We had great fun and feel fitter for the experience.

Thank you for your support,

Mr Hale, Fitness Club coordinator
