Clubs for Spring Term

Please note that Key Stage 2 homework clubs will be run as drop in sessions. Classrooms will be available where children are supervised to complete their homework in a quiet environment. A teacher will be present to support the children with their work. In case of wet playtimes, these may have to be changed.

In Key Stage 1, there will be a classroom available for children to have time to complete tasks on I pads such as Accelerated Reader quizzes   or Times Tables Rock Stars tasks. A member of staff will be present to support the children with their work.

Please note, that these may have to be changed in the event of wet playtimes

What to expect at some of our clubs:

Chess Club

Mrs Colclough will be leading a Chess Club, in the club children will be developing their logical thinking, reasoning skills, decision making as well as patience and persistence. Children who are not familiar with the game will be taught how to play from scratch. This club is not only for beginners though and all skill levels are welcome. Children will have opportunity to compete against their peers in mini class tournaments. Most importantly, chess is incredibly fun!

Drama Club

Miss Clarke will be leading drama club with Year 5. The drama club provides children with confidence in public speaking listening and teaching them the importance of team work.

 

Maths Help

Maths help club will be lead by Mrs White for Year 5 children. The club will cover the topic taught in the Math’s lessons that week and it will be a perfect opportunity to recap anything that your child hasn’t understood properly. I will also provide activities and questions that will push your child on further to develop their understanding of reasoning skills.

Gardening Club

In our Gardening club, run by Mr Baylay and Mrs Dunn, children will enjoy lots of hands-on experience of growing and looking after plants, harvesting the produce and even look at garden bugs. Our garden encourages children to enjoy the outdoors and to interact with nature.

Mini Vinnies

We are very proud to say that St Gregory's  ‘Mini Vinnies’ group will be running again in Summer Term. Our Mini Vinnies group work as ambassadors in our school and local community in promoting good causes.

Mindfulness

Mrs Price and Mrs Williams will be leading our mindfulness club, with a range of different activities each week from craft to dance and yoga to meditation.

Mindfulness is taking notice of how your body feels and what you see, smell and taste. When you notice what is happening around you, it can help you to calm down when you’re sad, angry or frustrated. Mindfulness helps you deal with tough emotions in addition to helping you to feel happy, settled and content.
