Challenge Maths Group
Tuesday 3.15pm - 4.15pm – Years 5 and 6
This club is for children identified as being ‘Gifted and Talented’ and is by invitation only.
The club focuses on developing problem solving skills, team work, collaboration and independent thinking skills through puzzles, online resources and strategy games.
The children are encouraged to work together in teams as well as individually and to solve puzzle using alternative methods and higher order thinking.
In the second part of the spring term the focus will be on using ‘philosophy for children’ to extend questioning and reasoning.
We offer Rugby as an after school activity to KS1 on Wednesdays and KS2 on Fridays. The safety of young players is paramount, closely followed by having fun and enjoyment while learning. Tag rugby is a non-contact introduction to Rugby Union. As a result it is equally at home on a playground/school hall or on a playing field as players must remain on their feet. At this level it is the acquisition of techniques and skills, combining with taking part/teamwork rather than winning games that is important. Some of the skills taught are running with a ball, handling and passing activities, hand to eye co-ordination, beating a defender and running in support of a ball carrier. All this is in addition to Rubgys core values of teamwork, respect,enjoyment,discipline and sportsmanship.
