Clubs and Activities

 

 

Every term, we offer a wide range of clubs and activities for our children, and we aim for every child to attend at leas one club in the school year - although many of our children attend multiple clubs!  Some of these are clubs lead by staff members and others are clubs by local organisations.  Our clubs range from sewing to football, from theatre to hockey. 

 

Autumn 2017 Club Timetable

 

Theatre Club

 

After a successful start last year, Theatre Club resumed in the Autumn term.  We have been developing our confidence with small group games and sketches.  We are looking to put on a small performance at the end of the term.  Details to follow...

 

 

Sewing Club

 

This term the children have been using fur fabric to make soft toys. They have developed their sewing and cutting skills and used toy eyes and stuffing to create whales. Last term we used binca and sewing threads to make cross stitch book marks.

 

Guitar Club

Guitar Club is a free club for Year 5 and 6 children. There is no prior knowledge of guitar needed, parents however must provide a suitable instrument for the lessons.  Children are taught how to care for their guitar and build up their finger muscle strength through exercises. Then they move on quickly to learn chords, notes and rhythms. The promise is that they will be playing a song within the first 2 weeks of joining! They also talk about different styles of music with the children suggesting the songs they want to play and perform.

 

Cookery Club

 

Great news:  Grove pupils are cooking again for the 'let's get cooking' programme.  Our photos show that "Tasty American Pancakes," were on the menu recently and the children tried both sweet and savoury - yum!!  Follow the club over the coming weeks to see what else they cook up!!

UPDATED

The first 'lets get cooking' group have completed their sessions and have thoroughly enjoyed it which is great.  The children's parents came to taste test at the end of the most recent session all have been very complimentary saying the children have been cooking at home and trying foods for the first times!

They made pizzas made from a flatbread base and tomato sauce made from scratch with fresh vegetables 

Even the washing up got done!  Well done to all involved.

 

 

UPDATED...

The second group for 'let's get cooking' are preparing 'oaty fish cakes' and Cheesy colcannon.

They went down well, most were eaten before they got home!

The children are even happy to wash up!!

UPDATED!

Let's just say... there was nothing left.......

 

 

All Sorts

All Sorts is a fantastic lunchtime club where children from throughout the school can spend time with others in a calm, welcoming environment.  Children select if they would like to come to All Sorts and often bring a friend to play with.  As you can see, they enjoy lots of different activities, including our sensory garden.
