Gardening club takes place on a Monday after school. It is open to Year 2 children. Mrs Smith is the teacher in charge along with the expert help from Mr Dew.
Some of the activities include planting bulbs and seeds, painting pots, making and maintaining bird feeders and keeping the school wildlife area tidy and safe.
We have bird feeders in various places all around the school.
Not only do we need Mr Dew's gardening expertise, his height comes in handy occassionally too!
The children in year 2 enjoy all aspects of gardening club including...
...making lots of mess!
Home made bird feeders made by pupils in year 2.
Computer club is for all year 2 children and happens on Monday lunchtimes. Over a period of 4 weeks each group has the opportunity to sample a variety of art programmes including:
Dazzle, 2 animate, 2 go, 2 paint.
The children are also able to learn how to e-mail their friends within school (this is password protected by the teacher) using www.starz.org.uk.
They have also e-mailed the Deputy Head who has, in turn, responded to each e-mail, therefore allowing the children to receive and view messages.
One session is also set aside for internet access using websites such as www.bbc.co.uk/schools and www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies.
Netball Club (run by Mrs Stone) is also open to Year 2 children every Wednesday after school at 3.00.
The aim of this club is to have lots of fun doing a variety of activities and playing games whilst gaining a basic knowledge and understanding of the rules, techniques , skills and team positions in netball.
Last year we were able to purchase 2 new netball posts, which were kindly funded by the P.F.A. this enables us to play matches and practice all the skills we have learnt.
N.B. Due to Mrs Stone leaving Spinning Infants for pastures new, netball club is currently not being run, but hopefully will resume again in the Autumn term 2007.
