Diary of Weekly Activities
Below describes clubs usually run within school. Due to Covid-19 health & safety precautions these clubs were temporarily withdrawn during the Summer 2020 term. We hope clubs can be re-instated later on in the Autumn term. This will be communicated via the school office as clubs return.
BREAKFAST CLUB HAS BEEN RE-INSTATED AND IS RUNNING EVERY DAY FROM 3RD SEPTEMBER 2020
Our Breakfast club runs from 7:30am to 8:35am every morning. We offer a selection of healthy breakfasts and have a variety of activities that run each morning. Every day, the children have a choice of indoor or outdoor sport to participate in such as rounders, team games, skipping, apparatus and many more. We also offer art and crafts, board games, construction, movie mornings, colouring and reading.
Breakfast Club does not offer drop in sessions. ALL places MUST be pre-booked. Please contact the school office for further information and to book your place.
Art Club runs Tuesday & Wednesday after-school 3.05pm-4pm in the art studio, if your child wishes to join then please contact the school.
There is a Wednesday lunchtime art club too and children from years 1-6 have the opportunity to join in activities on a class rotation basis.
Code club is run by Mrs Taylor who is our very own CEOP ambassador.
At Code Club, all the children have the opportunity to learn to code, no matter what their coding skills or ability. The children learn through coding projects in Scratch which vary from small animations to multi-level games and even a quiz or two!
We have a fantastic gardening club which is run by volunteers made up of parents and grandparents. Veggies are sown, grown and harvested and the children learn all aspects of this process as well as the importance of looking after the plants and the garden. The children can choose to join in to the club which runs during lunch times, with no need to sign up. Show an interest and grab some wellies from the wheelbarrow and come join the planting!
Makaton are signs and symbols that are used to help people communicate. Makaton is designed to be used with speech.
Over 100,00 adults and children use Makaton as a form of communication.
Mrs Stratton has a lunch time signing club in which children learn simple signs as well as songs and stories in Makaton. At Christmas, children in sign language club learned some Christmas carols in Makaton.
Below are some simple Makaton signs that you might want to practise.
Some of Hannah's pupils continued piano studies throughout Summer term '20. Due to Covid-19 these lessons were delivered by a combination of Zoom lessons and pre-recorded video tutorials. Pupils worked through their tutor books as well as learnt their own choice of pop songs.
Hannah is looking forward to reconnecting and playing music with all of her students in the new school year and maybe with some new students too!
Hannah celebrated all her pupils hard work by putting together a virtual piano assembly.

Pupils & Pieces:
- Asa plays “Ready, Set, Go” by Royal Tailor. A very positive pop song that Asa sings beautifully.
- Autumn plays “Dipperty and Dopperty”. She lets the melody flow between both hands.
- Harrison E plays “Andy and the Band” from the children’s TV show. Watch out for the ending.
- Harrison T plays “Carie and Mary Quite Contrary”. Contrary means to go in opposite directions. Harrisons hands go in different directions on the piano with crunchy chords.
- Isabelle plays “Wings” by Little Mix and co-ordinates this with sings at the same time.
- Jenson plays “Creatures Lie Here” with changing chords in the left hand.
- Miley plays “Happy Day”, a Grade 1 piece. She swings the quavers which makes it bouncy.
- Olivia plays “In the Water” a rock song that sounds really different and expressive on the piano.
- Williams performance “Waving Through The Window”. A sad song from a musical, he acts the part of the character. The character has a happy ending.
