Year 5 & 6 After School Sports Club Every Wednesday, from 3.15 pm - 4.15 pm, children from Years 5 & 6 can take part in sporting activities with Mrs Allen and Mrs Hill.

If you love a good read, this is the club for you. Each Thursday at lunchtime, Mrs Lovell works with a group children to read and discuss meaty texts. The club look at fiction, non-fiction and poetry and Mrs Lovell welcomes text suggestions from children. The session takes place in the library.
Every Friday after school, children in Y6 can take the opportunity to complete homework tasks in our Homework Club. This is run by Mrs Hill and Mrs Stringwell and pupils can be supported with any work they are less sure of.
We believe that a love of reading promotes reading skills and general knowledge. Research shows that children who read widely and are supported in this venture achieve most highly. In order to enable greater access to books, Mrs Blythe will be opening the library each day before school (8.30 – 8.50) and at lunchtime.
Before school, children and parents / carers may enter school via main reception to visit the library.
