We pride ourselves on the wide range of clubs that we offer to our pupils each term. Our extra curricular activities enable children to learn new skills, improve existing skills and provide them with the opportunity to mix socially with different children. We regularly change clubs to ensure many different interests are catered for. These clubs take place both within the school day, at lunchtimes, and after school. Some of the clubs we have offered recently include:
- Newspaper Club
- Mindfulness Club
- Football Club
- Street Dance Club
- Lego Club
- Science Club
- Book Club
Please not due to COVID - 19 our clubs are currently suspended.
Music and Drama
In addition to class music, children have the opportunity to learn to play an instrument. Small group lessons are within the school day and currently include flute, clarinet, keyboard, brass and drumming. We restrict children to learning only one of these musical instruments in school at any one time due to the time that they take out of the other areas of the curriculum.
Over the course of the year, every child contributes to a special performance. These make magical memories and are not to be missed! The youngest children lead a Nativity production, children in the middle years lead Harvest, Easter and Armistice productions and the oldest children work together on a grand musical in the Summer term. Every child takes part and the audiences are rarely dry eyed!
Sports Competitions and Events
We are proud to see the many successes of our children when they compete against other schools and for some, even at district and area competitions as well. In addition to high levels of success, our children are usually the loudest supporters too!
We take children on two residential visits during their time at our school, first at Year 4, and then in their last year of primary school in Year 6.
The Year 4 residential is for two nights and for many children it is their first time away from home. The programme bears this in mind and offers outdoor activities that are fun and challenging but within an environment that is secure and familiar e.g. woodland orienteering. Children find that they can do so much for themselves- including making their own bed and having a tidy bedroom!
The Year 6 residential is for 4 nights. Children build on their earlier Year 4 experiences, but now apply teamwork, independence and perseverance to some activities where they face up to particular challenges e.g. abseiling or crawling through an underground maze in the dark! Children achieve success and their confidence soars. They offer significant support to each other and form bonds that stay with them for a very long time.
The residential visits have a huge impact on children and we try to ensure that every child is able to attend and take full advantage of the challenges.
