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 Due to Covid-19 health & safety precautions these clubs were temporarily withdrawn during the Summer 2020 term.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

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

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

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!

The children learn how use HTML to build and style their own web pages!
We have also invested in Micro: Bits, which are pocket, sized codable computers which allow the children to be really creative in their coding. They have coded and made some wonderful creations including the “Rock, Paper Scissors” game and the very frustrating game “Frustration” where they guide a wand along a course without making contact.
Harry Potter’s wand also makes an appearance...

Gardening Club

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 Club

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.

Music Lessons

We welcomed Hannah back into school this Summer term, with Covid-19 measures in place to enable a safe learning environment. Hannah has celebrated all her pupils hard work by putting together a series of recordings.
