This term we introduced after school clubs three days a week. Offering a range of different activities that would interest the pupils. The have been really successful both staff and pupils have enjoyed the activities they have participated in.
The activities on Tuesdays are forest school, cookery and then tumble track and soft play. On Tuesdays we have had a forest school club, Sharon has taken a group of pupils up onto the designated forest school area, building a fire pit, wind breaks and going for walks in the school grounds with torches, having hot chocolate and marshmallows around the fire. Becki has been leading a cookery club, they have made cupcakes, bread rolls, flapjack and then just for Christmas mince pies and reindeer food. The cooking equipment was given to us by The Lions Club of Bletchley, which means that the pupils have enough equipment to be able to have their own set of everything! We also have a group using the tumble track and soft play which helps burn off energy for those that are more active.
On Wednesdays the activities are an art group, where they are enjoying exploring different materials, and making different things to take home. A wheelchair dance group, who are creating a performance that we can then show to parents in the new year. We also have a Lego/Duplo and book club, this club as been supported by The Lions Club of Bletchley, they have provided us with some boxes of Lego and are organizing collecting Lego for us.
On Thursdays we get to use some of our most favourite of school resources. We have a swimming club, pupils are able to explore the water and practice some of the skills they have learnt in school or just have fun splashing around in the water. We also have a group on the trampoline, doing rebound therapy, which again is a popular session in school. Our final club is a sound session, a small group of pupils go to our therapy cabin and relax listening and playing to some of our favourite sounds, incorporating yoga and learning how to relax.
