Recorders Yr 1 - 3

Recorder club is run by Ms Knight on Thursdays at 3.30-4.45pm in 3DL. It is a great introduction to playing a musical instrument, even if it is a bit squeaky to start off with. The children learn how to hold and play the recorder, play simple tunes and begin to read music. It is a great opportunity for children to enjoy learning a new skill together.

Playing the recorder gives children a great start on the musical ladder and many children may move on to play other instruments as they move through the school.

If children have their own instrument they are welcome to bring it.

Gardening and Wildlife

Gardening and wildlife club is run by Miss Lucy Wester and Mrs Jayne Charlton on Thursdays at 3.30-4.45pm and the children meet in 4LW. It gives children not only the opportunity to enjoy lots of hands-on experience of growing but also to make the school environment and allotment as eco-friendly as possible, reducing, recycling and reusing as much as we can, and trying to encourage lots of wildlife into the garden.

The children will look at seasonal plants, fruit and vegetables and make a plan for their raised bed. Over the weeks they tend their crops, which in previous years have been sold at the school fete, or the flowers used to decorate the school dining tables.

Throughout the term we will move on to talking about where they live, their family, hobbies, sports and subjects at school. We will also be looking at sampling some \'tapas\' and learning some flamenco dancing.

Through learning songs in Spanish, children are able to increase their vocabulary; for example, the Spanish version of \'Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes\'.

Many of the activities are taken from the \'Language Nut\' website, which all children are able to access at home.
