NBH Introducing: Autumn 2017 Clubs

This term we are  returning with some very popular activities that we launched last year:

Airfix Model Making Club

Pupils will be given an Airfix model to build from scratch, carefully gluing each piece together over the 10 week course and painting the final masterpiece.

 

Computer Club

A session where we will explore a range of apps and create things like e-books, comic strips and stop-motion animation.  We will also work with some coding.

 

Construction Club

Construction club is based around bumper boxes of Lego. The children have the opportunity to work in pairs and groups to achieve a construction aim, which is usually set around a new task each week.  The merits and possible structural drawbacks of the finished pieces are then carefully considered and discussed within the group. On occasion, other materials may be used for the construction task. As well learning from the building process, the children also develop through team work and project analysis.

 

History Club

History Club allows students with a keen interest in History to broaden the key skills they practice in class. We do this through presentations, group work and individual development of historical concepts. Recently, students worked on raising both money and awareness on behalf of the British Legion. This coincided with a trip to the battlefields of Belgium and France to mark the centenary anniversary of the Battle of the Somme. The Spring term will entail another focus to mark pertinent historical milestones.

 

Maths Club

Pupils will develop their level of Maths skills and knowledge. This will be accomplished by using games, activities and mock competitions. Pupils will cooperatively work to complete logic and Math puzzles.

 

School Orchestra / Brass Band

This group rehearses for concerts throughout the year (all instruments welcome except piano) and so Grade 1 /general competency in both playing and reading the music is a pre-requisite.  We explore classical and popular repertoire; recent performances have included pieces such as Dr Who, Adiemus, The Carnival of the Animals, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly theme tune and many more…

 

Singer Songwriter Club

The Singer Songwriter Club aims to encourage children to write and perform their own songs, focusing on lyric writing, melody and performance. Over the weeks pupils will build up a portfolio of their work and progress from writing a few lines of a song to writing a verse, chorus and bridge. The children are taught vocal and breathing techniques in the first part of each session. They will work individually and in groups, exploring a new topic each week. We will look at rhythm, dynamics, structure, genre, pitch, tone, harmony and improvisation.

 

Touch Typing

Keyboards are part of everyday life but many adults and children can only pick and peck at the keys. This slows them down . Unfortunately pressure on the curriculum result in the demand for regular touch Typing lessons which are invaluable .
Touch Typing can support both adults and children with specific learning difficulties, visual problems and handwriting difficulties. It supports clarity and presentation of work, speed of input as well as spelling rules and patterns. Typing takes away the mental and physical pressure for reluctant writers and the acquired skills promote confidence and sentence structure.
Children can take charge of their own independent learning from the start of the course and the challenges presented can easily be monitored by parents.
