Swimming allows children from all years to progress further with their confidence and stroke development in the water. We use the Swim England Duckling and Learn to Swim stages (1 to 7) to help develop each child ready for competitive swimming. Once awarded, certificates and badges can be purchased. We also work in conjunction with our LES Sports team and where appropriate can enter children into some local competitions.
What is coding? Coding is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, apps and websites. Your browser, your OS, the apps on your phone, and this website – they are all made with code. Coding, in the simplest of terms, is telling a computer what you want it to do, which involves typing in step-by-step commands for the computer to follow.
The benefits of learning coding at a young age are enormous and include the development of problem-solving skills, computational thinking, persistence, collaboration, and a deeper understanding of a range of mathematical concepts and language.
In Craft club we enjoy making many crafty objects. We have started this week to make a stain glass window which we will finish next week. We will also be doing many more exciting things such as clay modelling, painting and much more.
Ball Games is a fun and varied club open to all children in Key Stage 2. The children themselves get to choose which games they play each week, they even make up their own games; as long as the game involves a ball, we’ll play it! We have played football, basketball, volleyball, hockey, cricket, rounders, tennis, tag rugby and the hugely popular “Dodgeball”. If your child would like to have fun and develop their skills, then sign them up for Tuesday afternoon Ball Games club!. They will have a great time.
The Performing Arts Club builds confidence and musical awareness through participation in drama games, vocal warm ups and dance choreography. The pupils then use these skills to rehearse and perform a mini musical at the end of the term!
