Dance club meets every Thursday 3.30pm – 4.30pm.

We dance lots of different dance styles including:

Hip hop, Bollywood, Disco, Rock and Roll and Cheerdance.

On Thursday 8th March we attended a dance festival at Forest Arts along with a number of other local primary schools.

Our dancers learnt a new hip hop style dance with Pheasey Park Farm School which was showcased later in the day along with our own arrangement.

The dancers enjoyed the day – even though the time passed far too quickly!

Film Club is on a Monday Lunchtime for Years 3 and 4.

We watch a variety of different films and discuss the features and our own preferences.

After each film, we create a film review to recommend our favourites to other children our age.


Forest school club is for KS2 children and takes place in the community gardens.

We look at the wildlife and plants in the area.

Children use a variety of tools including knives, shears, bill hooks and mallets to make things using wood and materials found in the garden.

We talk about fire safety and light a fire to cook on.

We also build dens and learn what knots we can use to make it stay up.
