AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS - EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

We believe that extra-curricular activities can develop many skills and enrich children's learning.   We pride ourselves that a very high percentage of children join in with the provision that is available.  Many of the opportunities offered are for junior aged children but where possible younger children are invited to take part too

Please check the website reguarly for details of our clubs.   Parents are informed by letter and permission slips are obtained in order that a child may attend any of these clubs.  Some clubs will carry a small contribution but where possible we offer clubs for free.

The following clubs run at various times throughout the year including

Football, netball, digital photography, nature, choir, country dancing, multi-sports, Games Club and the Kidzclub.

MINI MASTERCHEF CLUB

TUESDAY - 3.00 PM TO 4.30 PM

Run by Miss Agg

A discussion and/or demonstration will start each session followed by a chance for the children to follow a recipe and do some practical cooking.  Please ensure that your child knows that there is an expectation for them to help with washing up and tidying the kitchen at the end of each session.   The sessions run for 7 weeks and on the final session (week 7), we hope to invite parents in to sample some of the children's cooking.   Priority will be given to the year 6 pupils who have not taken part before and the club is also open to year 5 pupils.  There may be a chance for pupils who have already taken part previously to join the club again, either on this series or the next one starting later in the year.


We have to make a small charge for these sessions to cover the cost of the ingredients.   This will be £3.00 per week and will be payable in full, £21.00 (cash) once your child has secured a place and no later than Monday, 21st January.

MUSICAL/INSTRUMENTAL TUITION

Singing is a very important part of the education that children receive.   This is celebrated in the annual Christmas concert and carol service.   Our music co-ordinator Catharine Downes also offers piano lessons which should be organised with her directly.

Many musical instrments are available for the children to learn.   These include violins, recorders, flute, clarinet, cornets, trumpets and piano.  We are delighted to offer so much variety and the work of our musicians is celebrated in an annual summer concert.

We also have a peripatectic brass teacher, Mrs Tracey Gwynne and a peripatetic flute teacher, Julie Gibbons.

If your child is interested in having lessons please contact the school office.
