Regular Extra Curricular Activities

Netball

Weather permitting, netball sessions are held in the school playground, after school on a Wednesday.  The club is run by volunteer parents Jan Cunningham and Andrea Gibbs and is open to all in Years 4-6.  Sessions finish at 4.15 pm.

Netballers take part in tournaments in the spring term.  These are held at the Academy in Taunton and are aimed primarily at girls and boys in Years 5 and 6.

Kempo Karate Jujitsu

Kempo takes place on Friday evenings and is run by Neil Hazell, a highly qualified (5th degree black belt) instructor.  The club is open to children in Year 2 and above and is located in the school hall.  Sessions are £3.50 each and the children are regularly assessed on their progress.

Football Club

Thursdays on the school field, weather permitting.  It is run by Hannah Barker and Jonathon Hillman, both volunteers with a keen interest in football.  Your child will need a pair of football boots, shin pads and a waterproof coat.  Children are walked up to the school field by Hannah and Jonathon and need to be collected promptly at 4.15 pm unless they are attending Extra Time Club.

Other Activities

Country Dancing Club

In the summer months we hold our ever-popular Country Dancing Club after school in the playground.

County Dancing is run by Mrs Griffith, one of our former teachers who just cannot keep away!

The club is open to both boys and girls from Year 2 upwards, and those attending the club are invited to participate in the Wells Country Dancing Festival, held on the Cathedral Green in June, and also in the Taunton Country Dance Festival, held in front of the bandstand in Vivary Park.

Scratch Club

Scratch is an introductory coding program.  It introduces children to the process of coding to write software.  Its simple drag-and-drop process mimics the step-by-step process a programmer would use when writing a new piece of software, including debugging a program to make it run properly.  With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games and animations.  Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively - essential skills for life in the 21st century.
