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 4.
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. This is issued via Parentmail or you can download and print a copy.
Please return the form completed and signed to your child's class teacher via their school bag or hand in to the school office no later than Friday 8th February 2019.
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 are running in Term 4 (25th February-5th April (1:30pm finish for pupils)). Term 5 clubs and activities will be announced towards the end of Term 4.

Check back towards the end of Term 4 for the clubs that will be on offer in Term 5 (23rd April - 24th May):
Our after-school coding sessions are pupil-led with each child selecting which programming language they want to use to produce a short animation or a game following the instructions from pre-loaded, developer-published, coding projects. These projects are specifically designed for primary school-age children to introduce them into the world of coding in the most common programming languages. The programming languages that the children can choose from are Scratch, Python and html.
Mr Filewod, Computing Subject leader
Fizz Pop Science Club
These after-school clubs are designed to inspire our children towards gaining an interest in the Sciences. The workshops are a mixture of exciting demonstrations and thought-provoking, hands-on experiments and tasks.
In Term 4, it will be the turn of pupils from Years 3 and 4 to experience this exciting after school activity.
Mrs Connor, Science Subject leader
Gardening Club returns!
With the arrival of better weather, I will, again, be running gardening club on Tuesdays, after school in Terms 4 and 5, for Year 3 and Year 6 children.
We would like to plant more spring bulbs around the school grounds; 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.
Please also note, that there is a £10 charge for Gardening Club to cover Term 4. This money will be used for buying the plants and materials needed to ensure the children can fully enjoy this after school activity.
Thank you for your continued support,
Mrs K. Heasman
Wake Up Shake Up!
Every Thursday morning from 8:35-8:50am, we run Wake Up Shake Up! 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. Pupils simply need to ask their teacher if they are able to attend that morning.
Our Wake Up Shake Up 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!
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)
