Eco-Gardening Club with Mrs Painter-Chapman

Our Eco-Gardening club has developed a beautiful and bountiful garden!

So far we have produced good crops of organic potatoes, peas, broad beans and strawberries.

This year our young, intrepid gardeners have fought off uncooperative weather, pheasants and more than a few of the plump snails and slugs who lurk furtively awaiting juicy morsels.

It was so exciting to watch the apple trees the pupils planted last year grow and produce their first crop.

We are now in the process of building a rockery and have a wildflower patch to encourage the bees and wildlife, plus a bug-house which we made which we wish the snails and slugs would live in!!

We call ourselves the Eco Warriors!

Cinema Club with Miss Lunn

Going to the movies or watching films at home are popular extra-curricular activities for many families so in Cinema Club children have the opportunity to get together with their friends and watch a feature film.

This gives pupils and teachers the chance to explore the world of film.

With weekly screenings cinema club inspires, excites and opens up new avenues for learning through the pupils own imaginations.

Lunchtime Computing Club with Mr Lowrie

1 lunchtime per week Mr Lowrie runs the computing club where he teaches pupils simple coding using the program Kodu. Kodu lets kids create games on the PC via a simple visual programming language.

Kodu can be used to teach creativity, problem solving, storytelling, as well as programming.

Anyone can use Kodu to make a game, young children as well as adults with no design or programming skills.
