High quality clubs and activities are an essential part of school life. They provide opportunities to enrich children’s experiences beyond the curriculum and are an excellent medium to foster good relationships between staff, pupils and parents. They develop children’s social skills by providing a forum of interaction between children across different ages and schools. Clubs and activities are matched to our staff’s expertise and interests and make the most of the resources we have in school. In some cases, clubs are run by external providers who make a charge for attendance.
We aim to develop a positive attitude in children towards sport where competitive games are encouraged and carefully balanced with activities that provide enjoyment for all.
Some of the clubs we are currently running include: Mr G's Science, Lego, Painting, Gymnastics, German, New Age Kurling, Drama (with a professional teacher) and Football.
First and foremost, our children love Lego. They are natural engineers, constantly asking questions and imagining new ideas. We love being creative and imaginative in this club. Often times after completing a challenge the children will explain different functions of each of the Lego blocks or sections. Even though Lego does not have many specific details, the children use their imagination to define the functions of each block -a ship's engine, helicopter parts, futuristic houses and even an electric car for Mrs Sheppard!
