More information about activities and clubs
Activities and Clubs Overview
The school runs a variety of activities 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 Coding: Designed to push the boundaries of coding and teach children a new and useful language to work with. It is challenging but children should learn some great skills along the way.
Advanced Recorders: Drop in club. 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.
Construction Club 1-2: A different construction challenge every week and the children will be able to use a range of different materials to complete the challenge!
Football: Regular training sessions after school with occasional fixtures against other local primary schools in the area within the local 'football league'. Fixtures will be on Thursdays after school and when these occur we will not have training. The club is open to keen year 5 and 6 children and we encourage both boys and girls to come along.
Maths Games: Drop in club. Maths Games Club is an opportunity for children to practice key Maths skills in a fun way, both through the use of ICT and through playing games such as puzzles and problem solving challenges. Children will have the chance to go on Sumdog, Times Table Rockstars and to be introduced to other websites to hone their Mathematical skills on. Songs and rhymes will also be used to help reinforce key facts such as number bonds and time.
Netball Club: Regular training sessions on with occasional fixtures against other local primary schools in the area within the 'netball league'. Fixtures will be on Thursdays after school and when these occur we will not have training. The club is open to keen year 5 and 6 children and we encourage both boys and girls to come along.
School Band: Drop in club. For anyone who can already play an instrument a little and would like to learn some of the songs we sing in assemblies, Harvest festival and at Easter and Christmas etc.
School Newspaper: Drop in club. Newspaper Club provides a brand new opportunity for top writers in years 5 and 6 to report on exciting St Nic's news! Club members will report on events, perform interviews and help to design and edit the paper, which will be published on the school website when ready. Enthusiastic writers who would like to take part should provide Mr Davies with a piece of their writing.
Singing Club: At the start of January 2018 Glee Club and Choir merged to form the......'St Nics Singers'
A chance for those who love singing to stretch their vocal chords! We practice, perform and record a range of popular and traditional songs; with the opportunity to perform to audiences both in and out of school during the year.
Wiggle and Wriggle: A 'drop in' song and dance club for Reception, year 1 and year 2 children. Join us in moving and grooving to popular songs chosen by the children.
