Teacher Led Clubs
The school runs a variety of clubs at lunchtimes and after school which are led by teachers and teaching assistants. At the beginning of each term a letter and form are sent home for you to complete and return with your child's preferences. All the clubs are very popular and we will do our best to ensure children are able to join the clubs requested, however please note that this is not always possible.

Advanced Recorders: For those pupils who can play a simple tune like 'hot cross buns' or 'three blind mice' and would like to learn more. Children learn more notes, how to read music and begin to play pieces so that they are able to become part of the school band if they wish.
Art Y5-6: Offers opportunities for budding artists to extend their knowledge and experience of artists and their works; learn about the ways in which artists have influenced both in the past and the present and explore 2D and 3D ideas, designs and creative works of their own, using a range of materials, including IT.
