Under 5's Club
The school operates a club for children to attend with a parent or carer on Monday afternoons at 1.30 pm throughout the months of October to June (excluding school holidays) and costs just 70p per child. The sessions are specifically for children who are to start school the following year, however any younger siblings can join us for the afternoon too.
It is basically a play session run by Miss Walker, one of the Reception Teaching Assistants. There is a wide variety of activities to choose from such as dressing up, colouring and painting, crafts and a range of lovely toys to play with. Often the Head Teacher, Mr Danson will pop in to say hello too! Then at around 2.15pm, we tidy up and sit down to have a well earned rest with a piece of fruit and drink, after which, the children get the opportunity to join Miss McNulty and the children in the present reception class for a story.
As you can imagine the club is very popular and it is an excellent and effective way to introduce your child to the school environment before they have to attend in September. In addition they will meet and play with their new classmates and get used to their Reception teacher, Miss McNulty, in a relaxed and informal manner. In our experience this makes the transition into school a lot easier for them and us!
