  1. Just as the title says! Do you have any exciting/different clubs and how well attended are they?

    Girls Football, Swimming, X-Country, Indoor Athletics, Athletics and Netball.

    At school we also offer..Boys Football, Basketball, Cricket, Rounders and then we have various companies coming in with dance, rugby etc.
  3. At the moment nothing, but have run netball, football, tag rugby, drama, chess, gardening, art clubs. Depends on what is required at school and whether it can be done. Have other groups that come in to do different clubs at different times.

    Chess - with chess kids and an ICT suite its quite easy and very peaceful!

    pee cee - what do you cook and with how many children? I'd like to do cookery but need ideas on what you can realistically make in 45 mins.

    (Though actually I hate clubs and find them a really b*****y chore but that's another rant...)
  12. titus, we are really into it!!!

    we used sainsbury vouchers last year and bouht all our cooking things including cookers

    we try to use healthy recipes but also go seasonal,,,like easter and christmas. today we made cheesy marmite twists with pastry..easy peasy.
    we make salads and fruit kabobs, shepards pie, tuna casserole, lots of stuff. I have all my recipes at school if you decide to so it, then email me

    we have 10 children per group for 6 weeks, although this seesion we ended up with 13 by mistake. its good to have even numbers to work ni pairs. we create a recipe book which they stick their recipe in each week...

    I have two helpers...actually they run it and I am recipe typer and dish washer. my helpers are very dedicated TAs who love their job to stay after school!

    you do need help to run it... don't do it alone...

  15. Wow - the eco car club sounds really interesting! Has anyone else ever run a 'Green' club/recycling club?
  16. I have done juggling club - used bean bags and also added yoyo skills and spinning plates for those that just did not get the knack of juggling. Even did a bit of 'tightrope' with a long skipping rope laid out across the hall floor and a narrow PE bench - kids loved it!

    After school craft club done in blocks of half terms I like to do projects eg,puppet making,mosaic tile decorating plates,bowls,applique cushion cover making.i limit club to 12 KS2 and they pay £3 for the half term to cover cost of things we use.
