Extra-Curricular Activities

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! See below for the details of lunchtime clubs that will be running in Term 3.

Attendance at after-school clubs, that are run by external providers, is organised directly with the named adult for that particular club; this is done through email communication (see table below for all the details). Please do not contact the school for enquiries about these clubs.

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

Please return the form completed and signed to your child's class teacher via their school bag or hand in to the school office.

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 3 (3rd January - 14th February). The expression of interest letter will be issued towards the end of Term 3 via Parentmail and our website.

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 Wednesday straight after school, where they can improve their fitness and continue to develop both socially and physically.

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)
