Extra Curricular Activities
Throughout the academic year we run a variety of lunchtime and after school activities. Some of these are run by staff, some by parent volunteers and some by private organisations. Where there are costs involved we ask that these are paid in full and up front, for the benefit of all involved. At present we are able to offer students –
- After School Green Gang
- After School Sports Club
- Lunchtime Choir Club
- Nursery Lunch Club
- After School River Rangers – for four weeks from 2nd March
- After School Lego Club – for six weeks from 27th February
Nursery Lunch Club
We are pleased to be able to offer a Nursery Lunch Club for those children who would like to stay. It will run from 12:00 midday to 1:00pm every day at a cost of £3.40 per child per day. This includes the cost of a freshly cooked meal, served in the school hall and supervision for the hour.
It will be necessary to inform the class teacher each morning if your child is staying for lunch, so that they can notify the kitchen of exact numbers. Please ensure that payment is made promptly each week, or half termly in advance to the school office.
Wednesday 17th October – Apple Stall
Well done to our Green Gang who raised £32 at their apple stall. I was very proud of them. Thanks also to everybody who supported them.
Green Gang will be holding an apple stall after school on Wednesday 17th October at 3:30pm
Green Gang Club – Autumn Term 2015
We have had a fantastic start to Green Gang this year. We started in September 2014 with just 4 children and now only one year on we have 9 – over 50% of our pupils in the gang, which we are very proud of!
What have we been doing? Well…..
We have grown vegetables and made soup and beetroot & chocolate cake.
Followed the RSBP Big Garden Birdwatch
Kept the school gardens tidy
Made T-shirts (or as we like to call them ‘Tree Shirts’) with leaf prints
Made bird food cakes and watched with excitement the birds eating them
Took part in ‘The Big Draw’ and drew natural objects, trees and wildlife.
We have plans in place to obtain a Bronze Eco-schools Award. We are hoping to achieve this by end of summer.
Also, we are working towards The Woodland Trust – Green Tree Award.
We end each term with a ‘party night’ and this term we are all looking forward to building dens and getting the kelly kettle out in the wooded area and enjoying a cup of hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows!
In the Spring/Summer term we will continue to keep the school grounds tidy, so we can be extra proud of the way our school looks. We are also hoping to spend more time in the wooded area doing activities along the lines of forest schools.
