After School Clubs
At Percy Shurmer Academy we offer our children an exciting range of after-school clubs. Our aim is to help the children to develop their articulacy and speaking and listening skills through fun and engaging activities. These are the following activities we currently offer:
Story Time with our Children and Families
This wonderful opportunity is open to children and their families every Monday from 2:40 pm until 3.15pm. Our school librarian (Mrs Gaston) will share a story with you all and then work with the children and their families.
There will be opportunities to discuss feelings within the story and the chance to complete a FUN activity.
We look forward to seeing you there! Each class in KS1 will get the opportunity to attend over the year.
Currently, in Summer Term 1, we are inviting children and parents from Year 1 to attend.
At Cookery Club we make a variety of food from all around the world, from tasty sandwiches to delicious mouth watering desserts. The children will learn essential cookery skills, create recipes and learn how to follow instructions to develop themselves into the next Gordon Ramsay. The children will begin to develop an understanding of healthy eating and hygiene.
Story Time Club
At Story Time Club, the children get cosy and comfy to share their favourite stories. They will then complete lots of exciting and fun activities based on the topic. The children learn to develop essential reading speaking and listening skills during the discussions. What a lovely way to end the day!
In BSL Club, children are learning some basic British Sign Language. They will also have sessions which enable them to be
'Deaf Aware' so they can communicate with their Deaf friends.
During the sessions, children will learn a variety of skills to aid them in any sport they may wish to take up in the future. Our after-school club aims to
improve fitness, coordination, body control, confidence, self-esteem, listening skills and cognitive learning.
