KNITTING CLUB 2016
We are now into the 4th week of our new knitting club. The children have picked up the skill really quickly and are continuing to practise the knitting stitch. Two of the children have progressed to knitting the pearl stitch.
Juniors can attend a weekly poetry club on a Tuesday lunchtime where we read and discuss interesting poetry. We are currently writing our own poems based on emotions. We have all chosen emotions to write about and have drawn pictures to inspire us and help us to come up with words to include. We are going to be sending off our poems to a competion.
Well done to this clever bunch of writers from Poetry Club who have had their work selected to be published in an anthology produced by Young Writers. Well done girls!

We have come to the end of our knitting club and the children have just finished turning their knitting into a small bag.
Construction Club - Y3 and Y4
Construction Club is an after-school experience where children can have fun, build self-esteem and teamwork skills and have a chance to learn and create through play. All children who attend will be given a ‘Constructors Challenge’ each week where they will learn about a famous building, structure or vehicle and then have a chance to create it themselves from our array of different building materials such as Lego and other construction toy sets. Alternatively if they would prefer they can just have free time to create and build from their own imagination. The last week will also include making structures using paper i.e. origami techniques.
You will receive a small snack and refreshment as part of the session.
The dates are as follows:
Year 3 children
- 26th January
- 2nd February
- 9th February
(Half term no session)
- 23rd February
Year 4 children
- 1st march
- 8th march
- 15th march
- 22nd March
(End of Spring term)
This weeks challenge focus: Origami
Challenge Theme: Famous Vehicles
This week our theme was vehicles. We discussed some famous vehicles from well-known films to begin then the children even came up with a few more different types of vehicles which were not on my list, so we used the internet to research them further.
Challenge Theme: Famous Bridges
This week we have been researching famous bridges from around the world. After discussing the features and locations we then went away to create our own inspired by what we had just learnt.
Challenge Theme - Famous Buildings
This week we looked at Famous buildings from around the world. The children had to guess what the building was used for (religious building, tourist atrraction...) and where in the world it was.
We also discussed the features and what made the building special. We found out that some of them were symetrical, some were very intricate in detail and others were stunning due to their size.
Christmas craft club
Some year 5 and 6 children are attending a weekly Christmas craft club.
We are making: decopatch tree decorations, clay gingerbread men and heart bunting, crackers and shopping bags.
Knitting Club update
Posted: 30th Jan 2016
The children have grown in confidence with their knitting skills and are getting faster each session. Many of the children are still continuing to knit their own pieces at home too. The children say that they enjoy coming to knitting club as it is calm and peaceful and has a good social atmosphere.
Knitting Club runs every Thursday from 3.15pm until 4pm for years 5 and 6. We started the club by learning how to cast stitches onto our knitting needle. We then looked at how to knit using plain stitch. The children worked really hard and after lots of practise are getting more confident and quicker. We offered knitting needles for sale at the club and many of the children bought these and are practising at home as well.

Football club is open to year 3 pupils this half term. It will begin straight after school and will finish at 4.15. The children will be taught new football skills each week and they will be playing some matches. This should help the children when we take part in football tournaments against other schools.
Netball club will begin on Tuesday 15th September straight after school for 6 weeks. It is open to year 5 and 6 pupils. Over the weeks we will be learning lots of netball skills and then playing some games. Hopefully this will help us when we take part in some netball tournaments over the next coming weeks!
Last year we had a Film Club that met every Thursday after school from 3:15-5:15pm.
We watched films and then discussed them. Then, each member logged on to the film club website when they got home to write a review. The best review each week could win a prize!!
