INSPIRING EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE AND SELF-BELIEF

After School Clubs

Primary 2 and 3 clubs give the children opportunities to experience many extra curricular activities.

 

READY FOR ANYTHING

Every Monday our Ready for Anything Club takes place after school.  Ready for Anything teaches children resilience skills and develops self-esteem and confidence through fun activities. 

“We have been learning it is ok to have lots of feelings”  George P3

 

JUMPING CLAY CREATIVE CLUB

Our very popular Jumping Clay creative club runs on a Thursday afternoon from 2.30-3.30pm.  Each 6 week block of sessions provides an interactive, hands-on experience using air-dry clay.  Each week the children will embark on a new path of discovery and create a new masterpiece to take home that day.

"I love jumping clay because I  make different figures every week out of colourful clay and take them home." Robin P3

 

TENNIS

Tennis after schools club takes place on Monday afternoons. The coach offers pupils opportunities to develop hand- eye coordination and have fun learning basic tennis skills.  Lots of exercise too!

“It’s good because you get better at hitting the ball and there are lots of games” Cormac, P3

 

FOOTBALL

Our after school football takes place on a Thursday afternoon.  Boys and girls can learn football skills as well as developing team spirit and enjoying some competition in school tournaments.

“I love it because you get to do matches and get points for scoring” Sam, P3

 

ECO COMMITTEE

Pupils in Primary 3 have the opportunity to join Eco Committee, which meets monthly after school and on other after school dates to work in the school grounds.  An interest in environmental issues and lots of ideas for new ways to reduce, reuse and recycle is all that is required for membership.  For those that cannot be involved after school Eco Volunteers work at lunchtimes to carry out environmental tasks around the school.

‘We do jobs like bird feeding and litter picking and collecting paper and looking after the environment. It’s good fun”   Luke, P3

 

COOKERY

The children learn the importance of a healthy balanced diet and basic food hygiene. They have the opportunity to make and sample tasty salad sandwiches and party treats. 

 

HOCKEY

The children have the opportunity to learn basic hockey skills while having fun and keeping fit too. 

 

ANIMATION CLUB

The children are developing their early coding skills using Scratch Junior. 

 

POETRY CLUB

The children are learning about different types of poetry and developing their own poetry writing skills.

 

GAMES

In Games club we play board games. We practice taking turns and sharing while having lots of fun with our friends.

 

EARTH

Earth Club is a great way to get children energized about taking care of Planet Earth. The children realise that learning and interacting with their local environment is very important but also good fun. They have opportunities to reuse and recycle. They make beautiful candle holders with jam jars decorated with decoupage. All winter they take care of the birds in our school grounds and even make them special bird cake. The children create wonderful artwork to encourage others to join with them in looking after our environment.

Primary 3 children may also be involved in the school Eco Committee.
