Clubs

Clubs:

We currently run a variety of clubs both during lunchtimes and after school; details of clubs will be given each term. For all after school clubs parental permission is required before a child may attend. Should a club need to be cancelled at short notice, parents will be contacted via our text messaging service and the children kept in school until collected. Some clubs may be run by professionals outside of the school. There may be a small charge for some school clubs.

Lunchtime Activities:

We aim to create lunchtimes that give pupils a chance to develop many different skills, in a fun, exciting and challenging environment. We hope that children will really enjoy their breaks and come back to the classroom ready for the afternoon’s learning. Recently, the children told us what they wanted from lunchtimes and they are now seeing the results of this with a menu of choices, which include indoor and outdoor activities.

We have a team of adult Playleaders, with a group of Year 6 ‘Junior Playleaders’ working alongside. Lunchtimes run on a fortnightly theme, with activities that aim to capture the interest of all children. A typical lunchtime for your child would include social time in the hall, eating lunch at a table with their friends. Then it might be making mud pies in the woods, creating a bead bracelet, running around, using the trim trail or playing a parachute game.

Activities are ‘free-flow’, so that children can move between activities, or create their own games during their lunch break. There are lots of opportunities for children to invent their own games and for free play. However, if children are not making good choices, they will be directed to an adult-led activity.

We aim to use as much of our school grounds as possible throughout the year, whatever the weather! It would be really helpful if your child could have a pair of named wellies, in a bag that they can leave in the cloakroom, so that they can enjoy outdoor play in all weathers. They will also need a waterproof coat during the colder and wetter times of the year.

Our Playleaders and Junior Playleaders also lead training sessions and assemblies for the school, where they teach new games, encourage safe play and share ideas and new equipment with the children.
