Spring Term Clubs
We have a varied selection of clubs for children to join and would like to thank the teachers and parents who volunteer to run them. Please refer to the Club timetable below for details of Autumn term's clubs.
Should you wish to join or re-enrol for a club which is run internally (please check the timetable for details), please register your child, give parental consent and make payment online via SCO (www.scopay.com/school). If you have not yet registered on SCO, please contact the school office who will be able to issue a registration letter to you.
Successful registration on SCO confirms that your child has a place (if you get an error message when registering on SCO this indicates the club is full). If in doubt, there is a guide below to help you - particularly if you need assistance with a non-chargeable club.
For clubs run by external providers which are not on SCO, please download the registration letter below and return it to the school office.
Once allocated a place, children are expected to attend each week except for school absence or medical appointments. Please let the School Office know as soon as possible if your child is unable to attend. If a child misses two sessions without good reason we will consider that your child no longer wishes to attend and offer their place to the next person on the waiting list.
If your child would like to attend, please complete the registration form below and return to the school office with your payment. Please note, this club runs half termly.
In case you don’t already know:
- Any child in Years 3, 4, 5 or 6 can join Music Club for a term at a time.
- The club’s aim is to encourage musicianship & develop playing, singing and performing skills, with at least one performance each term.
You might also find it helpful to know:
- Most learning will be done in Music Club time, but members will also be asked to do a small amount of practice in free time. This will usually involve learning words for new songs.
- Regular attendance at Music Club throughout the term is important, especially as our performances often take place on the last day of term.
- Year 5 & 6 children will have full-class choir with Mrs Middleton on Wednesday afternoons until February half term break. After that, unless circumstances change, it will be Year 3 & 4’s turn to sing during class-time.
For singers who would like more, or who can’t attend on Tuesdays, please consider trying Saffron Walden’s fabulous youth choir, Sign Up to Sing.
If your child would like to attend, please register your child on SCO; and complete the slip below and return to school.
This is an inclusive club. We encourage pupils to compete against themselves. Emphasis is on improvement, so that runners of all standards can be competitive. We aim to teach the pupils how to run, so that they can improve their technique and, therefore, their own personal bests. Hopefully there will be a few cross-country races in which they will be able to take part, if they wish to do so.
Running club will recommence next term for pupils in KS2. In the first instance this club is being offered to existing members and those in current Years 3-5; this is available to book on SCOpay. In the Autumn, any remaining places will be made available to the current Year 2 children.
Please be aware that from September we will be introducing a fee of £1.50 per week which will enable the school to provide two staff helpers to assist Mrs Dunlop. This will be payable in advance via SCOpay each term in the usual way.
There are currently spaces available in Spanish Club for pupils in Years 3-6. If your child would like to join, please complete the permission slip below and return to school.
We run a lunchtime Ukulele Club pen to children in years 1 & 2. School will provide a number of ukuleles for pupils to use at the Club.
The ukulele is a tiny, four-string, Hawaiian folk instrument that is fantastically rewarding to play. Children will learn to play a small number of chords and use them to accompany familiar and new songs. It is very useful for pupils who enjoy music and are keen to start playing alongside others.
The number of club members will be limited. In the event of too many children wishing to attend this club, a waiting list will be set up and priority will be given to children in Y2 who are new to learning the ukulele. We aim to invite a new group of children to learn to play each term.
