Cookery Club (Year 2)

Cookery Club takes place every week on Friday. It is an opportunity for Year 2 pupils to discover the science and pleasure of cooking for themselves. They learn about the importance of nutrition, as well as the many different tastes and ingredients that make up the food we eat. We set the children practical challenges and encourage them to further their knowledge, skills and creativity.

Club Provider: NBH

 

Drama Club (Years 1 and 2)

Drama Club is intended to develop children’s performance skills as well as their confidence, articulation, communication, co-ordination and other life skills. It’s also guaranteed to be lots of fun!

We cover many different aspects of drama and encourage creative growth by giving children the chance to share their own ideas and perform in small groups. Over the course of the school year, original plays are created with the children and material is personalised for different groups. These plays are established through fun improvisation, then scripted and performed using props and costumes.

Football Club (Years 1 and 2)

Each football session includes a variety of fun, fitness-based training drills and exercises, and then moves into training, matches and weekly tournaments. Children are encouraged to progress at their own pace, developing their self-confidence, skills and mobility in a safe and happy environment.

The club is run by Danny Grant Soccer School, which offers a range of football classes to boys and girls from age 3 to 7.  The team of experienced FA approved Football Coaches lead action-packed football sessions designed to turn energetic and enthusiastic youngsters into skillful, confident players.

French Club for bi-lingual children (Years 1 and 2)

This club is designed for French children who are or have been exposed to the language at home. During the one-hour session, children explore French sounds and books, work on reading comprehension and learn spellings and verbs. The club teacher, Madame Meunier-Murphy is involved with FLAM (designed by l’educationnationalefrancaise) outside of school, and will cover part of their curriculum and beyond.

Gym Club (Years 1 and 2)

Gymnastics is an all-round sport that develops strength, agility, flexibility and co-ordination. The after school club at North Bridge House is an excellent introduction to gymnastics. Children work on floor skills (i.e. handstands & cartwheels), bar work, vaulting and trampette work.

For children who excel in these sessions and who are interested in progressing from school to recreational or competitive gymnastics, the coach will recommend the best clubs to join depending on location.

Healthy Eating Club

Kids in the Kitchen is geared towards healthy eating education and is not a cooking class.  The sessions provide classroom training for 5-8 years old with the ultimate aim of changing the eating behaviour of children and encouraging them to be self-sufficient food consumers throughout their lives. The rich and inspiring content is introduced through interactive learning and drama techniques as well as games, to improve awareness on healthy eating whilst developing personal skills. In every session, children are provided fresh food to touch, smell and taste. The programme has been devised by a nutritionist professor and is delivered by qualified and experienced teachers. Kids in the Kitchen also offers a separate session for parents who are willing to improve their awareness about childhood nutrition. This programme is important for and has a highly positive impact on young children, improving their concentration and performance at school as well as helping to prevent the onset of adult obesity.

Lego Build club will be held after school every Friday. The children will be using the WeDo 2.0 core sets which include motors, motion sensor, tilt sensor, and of course, a whole stack of Lego! They will be constructing different kits and then programming the completed projects using the school iPads.

The children will develop basic computer skills, work collaboratively with one another, and will face many obstacles which will allow them to develop their problem solving skills.


Mathletics (Years 1 and 2)

Mathletics is a web-based, interactive learning tool  that uses fun activities to focus on each area of the curriculum at the appropriate level. Additionally there are problem-solving activities and ‘Live Mathletics’ which is essentially arithmetic practice with children playing against each other or against the computer. Children earn points for each activity they complete and they’re able to spend their ‘credits’ in the Mathletics shop buying bits and pieces to decorate their avatars.
