During this club, we had a great time exploring the allotment area to see what had been growing by previous Gardening clubs this week. We had lots of WOW moments from the children when they got up close to the plants. Our favourite was the broad beans as they had lots of lovely flowers growing on them. We learnt how to water the plants safely, how to weed and to identify what are weeds. It was great seeing all of the excited faces on the children.

What a great football session we had tonight. We started off with a fun warm up game and our favourite called mirror tag. The main focus of this session was learning to pass to feet, we took part in some drills to practice and develop our skills. We discussed beforehand what part of the foot to use and where our foot should be facing when passing the ball so the ball goes where we want it too.


it was amazing to see everyone’s light shine once again.

Tonight at football club we focused on marking a player and tracking back skills when defending. We achieved this by playing mirror tag and bib tennis. The children really enjoyed playing these games while at the same time learning new skills. Before finishing with a match we played defenders vs attackers to learn where we needed to stand and to put our new marking skills into practice with regular stopping points for us all to discuss and breakdown what we have just been doing and how we could improve on it next time.


i couldn’t believe how bright everyone’s light was shining.

We started off applying no pressure then again in a 1v1 situation to add some pressure when taking a first touch. Everyone tried really hard and it was amazing to see everyone having so much fun. I couldn’t believe how bright their lights were shining.

What a fantastic lego club we had today. It was amazing seeing how creative everyone was from year 3 and 4. It was amazing to hear everyone give a short presentation to everyone else at club about what they had made and why they decide to make it. Their light was shining very brightly and I wonder what they will make next week.

Urban Pioneers WOW Day in Year 3!


We started our topic with our wow day today! During the day we learn about Banksy and how his Graffiti Art has a meaning behind it. We look at different pieces of Banksy’s work and transformed into mini-Banksys and thought about what our Graffiti Art could mean. 


We then drew our art and made it into a stencil before flicking paint onto it to create the Graffiti Art! We also graffitied our names.

What a great first session back we had tonight. We started off with our favourite warm up game called king of the ring before moving onto some mini 2v2 and 3v4 games using the skills we have been practicing over the last year (pass and move). It was great seeing everyone’s light shine while having fun.

During our football club today we started off with a warm up called mirror tag. The purpose of this was to get everyone running around and thinking about movement and how to avoid their partner without being tagged. After finishing the warm up we began our main focus which was developing our passing skills. Before we started the drills we had a discussion on what was the best place on our foot to use when passing the ball and how much power to use. It was also agreed that if we were bouncing and moving around on our toes it allowed us to be ready to receive the pass rather than standing still. For the drills we carried out some passing accuracy exercises.

Red Nose Day 


Today we joined in the red nose day celebrations with a wear something red non uniform day and lots of fun activities! We decorated funny face masks to make people smile, learnt red nose day songs and dances and made joke posters to put in our windows at home!

During club we started off by playing King of the ring where we were able to develop our close ball control skills. The next skills we practiced were dribbling and shooting where we talked about where in the goal is the best place to aim and agreed that the top and bottom corner were the best. We loved playing football and keeping active.

World Book Day 


During our World Book Day celebrations we were really lucky and had a video call with a real author! Jion Sheibani wrote and illustrated the book, The Worries and we loved hearing an extract, the process of writing a book, about her other books and how to draw the characters!

Traders and Raiders Wow Day


Today during our wow day in Year 3 we learnt about longboats, planned them and made two! We had to think carefully about how we were going to fit our whole team in, make sure there were no holes and make it able to pass through shallow water. 


Once we we had made them, we painted it and designed and made shields. Have a look at the pictures below to see how amazing they are!

Year 4 had a fabulous wow event today. We created our own longboat and designed shields to go along the sides. The teamwork shown today was fantastic and we were able to share some wonderful ideas. 

Snow Day!


We were so excited that it snowed! We loved crunching about it in, sliding and throwing it around.



Today we started our new topic with a bang and the ground shook with excitement as we did our WOW Event! During the day we made a volcano using cardboard, a bottle and paper. We also painted it and made it look realistic! Then we used a science experiment to make the volcanoes explode! We then got active and played some volcano PE games. 


Take a look at the pictures below of our amazing day!
