Extra-Curricular Activities and Clubs
All our extra-curricular activities are running whilst pupils are at home.

Speech & Drama
This is being delivered with Katie Nichols online
Individual Music Lessons

Virtual Explorers Club
Virtual Explorers (Mrs Duggin) – An exciting opportunity to explore the world, even during lockdown! From Buckingham Palace to the Great Wall of China, Disney World to the Great Pyramid, places all over the world can be explored virtually thanks to technological wizardry on the internet. You will be introduced to three or four locations each week via a pre-recorded video from Mrs Duggin. You’ll then explore the sites independently and keep a record of your adventures in your very own travel journal. I can’t wait to see what you discover!
Green Dragons Club
Mrs Butterfield will be bringing you a combination of gardening, a bit of exploring habitats and a bit of eco too. She is recording video input explaining the focus for the week and showing an example of a practical activity. She is also including one or two follow up activities that children can do if they would like. There will be a supporting Power Point presentation including a few more details and tips to help with the activities.
Miss Tapp will be providing a weekly video introducing children to the many benefits of Yoga in a simple and inclusive way. Each session aims to support children in improving their posture, flexibility, strength, balance and coordination in a relaxed and non-judgmental format. Yoga can also help to increase awareness of the breath and focus the mind and body, which is important in this sometimes busy and chaotic world.
Mrs Woodward will be sending home a fun challenge each week and results can be sent back to Mrs Woodward. Some challenges will test physical skills, others will test sports knowledge. The challenges will not take long and anybody can take part. You can choose whether to participate each week, depending on how much time you have. Results should be sent to Mrs Woodward by the end of school on Wednesday. Enjoy!
Julia Bowker, our resident tennis coach, is providing the children with regular tennis activities that they can do from home.These are for fun and will also help improve the children’s game, ready for when school and tennis courts are back open!
