BLACKWELL PRIMARY SCHOOL
"Unlocking Potential, Providing Opportunities, Achieving Goals"
At Blackwell, we offer a range of clubs for our students to widen their horizons and give them the chance to do fun and educational activities outside of class.
The details of our current (and upcoming) clubs are below. We are always looking for suggestions as to how to widen our provision - please let us know if there is anything you would like to see!
Tough Tomatoes Gardening Club
Every Friday children have the chance to take part in the Tough Tomatoes Gardening Club. We take care of the outdoor space, grow our own fruit, vegetables and herbs, and learn all about wildlife and the great outdoors. Members of Tough Tomatoes are also central to the school Food for Life project, the RHS Campaign for School Gardening and the RSPB Wild Challenge. Please see Mr White for more details.
Football Club (Key Stage 1)
Run by Miss Pickering, one of our amazing parent helpers, Key Stage 1 have the chance to take part in Football Club every Monday or Tuesday (groups are given to children on signing up). Miss Pickering holds an FA qualification and the children will be learning basic football skills and taking part in friendly games.
Times Table Club
We have a weekly times table club where we can practice our times tables - it is great fun!
We run a lunchtime Code Club for our Key Stage 2 pupils. At the club, pupils learn to make their own code using three different coding languages - Scratch, HTML/CSS and Python.
Pupils get to make all kinds of cool and interesting things - their own computer games, posters, modern art, maps and so much more! Coding will be such an important skill in the future, so it's great to be able to offer our pupils a head start! For more details please see Mrs Knight.
A club for our Key Stage 2 pupils, at Drumming Club we learn the skills to make our own music using drums, both as individuals and as a group! You can usually hear us before you see us, but if you'd like to join in, please see Mr Ley!
We offer a Craft Club for some of students, each week at lunchtime with Mrs Simmonds. At Craft Club we use all different kinds of materials to create our very own works of art! Mrs Simmonds will contact you if you are selected for the Craft Club.
Our students have the opportunity to take part in music tuition run by an experienced tutor. Options available are piano, synthesiser, guitar, singing, ukulele, percussion and Rock Band Club - a number of students are already taking part and enjoying learning to play music - we are hoping they will perform an assembly for us when they are confident enough! If you would like to join this club please ask at the office to register.
Mrs Boswell runs a recorder club once a week for our Key Stage 1 pupils. Pupils have the chance to learn a range of songs and perfect their technique! If you would like to join please ask for a permission slip - all children must be collected by a responsible adult at the end of this club.
Let's Get Cooking
Our very popular Let's Get Cooking club is back! Each half term a group of pupils will learn how to cook certain dishes and recipes from fresh ingredients - it's messy, but it's fantastic fun and you get to take home whatever tasty snack you've made! There is a waiting list for the Let's Get Cooking club, please ask at the office for a permission slip to be added to the list.
Party Dance Club
Mrs Keay runs a weekly club for the children to learn to dance! Please see Mrs Keay for more details.
