Miss Geeson holds a weekly book club, in which the children meet to discuss their chosen book. We love hearing the children’s thoughts about the characters and plot – it’s always so exciting hearing everyone’s opinion! We’ve found some real page turners!
Practising our acting stage craft.
Following our hugely successful performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat in 2018, we have started an after-school Drama Club for KS2 children, led by Mr Cope.
The children take part in a variety of activities here to practise their acting skills and stage craft. We look at the portrayal of characters and do various vocal and physical exercises to help us get into character.
Our children love working on scripted pieces, as well as developing their improvisation and devising skills. The children love performing, and this is becoming another highly popular club!
Early Morning Sports Club
In order to promote readiness for learning, we offer an early morning, multi-sports club, led by Mr Wing. The sessions begin at 8am, twice a week and gives the children an opportunity to arrive early, get energised and ready for the day with their friends in a fun, relaxed environment.
We ask for a small donation towards the running costs, although the club is heavily subsidised by school through the Sports Premium.
Our school choir meets once a week with Mr Cope to learn new vocal skills and techniques. The children learn a variety of new songs, from pop songs to Disney to musical theatre and everything in between!
We do lots of breathing games and vocal exercises to warm up our bodies and voices, and then we’re ready to sing! They’ve even mastered some impressive harmonies.
Learning together. Having fun.
Multi-sports is an after school club run by our PE specialist teacher Mr Wing. It is offered, free of charge to parents (funded through the Sports Premium), twice a week: one session for Reception and Key Stage 1 children, the other for Key Stage 2 children.
Children are taught skills for a range of sports, such as tennis, football, badminton, cross-country, athletics and many more. Mr Wing selects the programme based on the interests of the children as well as helping them to prepare for tournaments. They are popular clubs as they have so much fun.
We made a quilt showing our school’s history.
This is organised and led by Grandma Sue, who is ably assisted by other parent/governor volunteers. The children have become very adept at not only using a sewing needle but are also nifty with a sewing machine too!
Many of the children have saved up their own pocket money to buy their own sewing machine, which they bring in every week to make their next design.
They produce some beautiful work, most of which they take home and keep.
Other clubs also take place, many led by the children themselves and so vary each term/year according to their interests.
Some clubs that have been on offer include, for example:
- Reading Café
- Glee Club
- Drawing Club
- Cheerleading Club
- Chess Club
Older children also do a course of Bikeability and take part in adventurous activities on their residential trip to Kingswood in Cromer.
