After School Clubs

Across the year at Boundary, our learning continues beyond the classroom and the normal school day as we offer a variety of extra-curricular clubs. There are a variety of clubs on offer, as you can see from the list below, some are offered exclusively to particular year groups (based on age requirement etc) whereas others are open to all year groups – these details will be shared on the club letters that are sent out at the end of each half-term.

We ask that you please ensure your child has the correct kit/clothing as failure to provide this will result in your child not being able to take part. This is especially important for sports clubs. In wet weather, classroom sessions will be held instead.

We expect all our children to behave in extra-curricular clubs as they would during the school day. Should they not do so, they may lose their place. They will receive a written warning before their place is withdrawn.

Children must be collected promptly at the stated finishing time. If a child is late being collected, their place will be at risk. If somebody else is collecting your child, please ensure they are aware of the collection door, finishing time and have your password.

We will ensure that our service is fully inclusive in meeting the needs of all children, particularly those that arise from their ethnic heritage, social and economic background, gender, ability or disability. Our setting is committed to anti-discriminatory practice to promote equality of opportunity and valuing diversity for all children and families. In accordance with Department of Education requirements we also promote the fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

Drawing and Colouring Mindfulness Club

Paying more attention to the present moment – to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you – can improve your mental wellbeing. Just like adults, children in our current world are busy, tired and easily distracted and often lack the time in their busy schedules to just ‘be’. Research has shown that teaching children to practice mindfulness allows them to pause and get a sense of what they need at that moment in time. They learn not to hide their feelings but understand themselves and others better which we feel at Boundary links to our Behaviour and PSHE work where we strive to empower our children to identify their own feelings.

Year 5/6 Rounders

Rounders is always done in the last half term of the year so that we can enjoy the summer afternoons and to develop our throwing and catching skills. It is also an opportunity to display leadership skills and to show how we can all be team players in competitive sports.

Active Maths for KS1 

Active Maths helps children solve maths problems but on the move. The children focus on various maths skills such as counting, ordering numbers or times tables but solve these as part of normal physical activity games. Children take part in races, go head to head with each other or work collaboratively to solve problems. Each activity they take part always has a mathematical problem behind it! 

Draw So Cute Club

In this club, children are able to create a finished drawing by following a step-by-step tutorial in a fund and engaging atmosphere supported by their peers and our art specialist. The aim is to encourage all children, no matter their ability, to take part and access art as a creative outlet.

French Club

The aim is for children to develop a love of the French language. We will learn French in a variety of different ways, such as songs, rhymes, games and ipads to name just a few and we will also look into setting up French penpals.

Arts and Craft Club

In Arts & Crafts club the children have the opportunity to use a variety of materials to create 2d and 3d pieces of art work from painting, to collage, sewing and sketching. The children will have free choice activities and structured opportunities throughout the sessions. We will also explore and range of artists and their styles and techniques, applying these into our our own pieces of work.

Performing Arts

 Taking inspiration from our school links with The Grand Theatre, The Winter Gardens and The Royal Shakespeare company to name but a few, if you like to sing, dance, act – or all three – then these clubs are for you; from singing club, key board club to dance and drama club we work to build children's confidence, speaking skills, coordination and much more. 

Archery Club 

In this club, children learn how to safely shoot an arrow from a bow and aim at a target. Children will learn the basics skills of archery through engaging games and activities that progress throughout the term. As their confidence grows, games and activities will become more challenging.

Multi-skills Club

Multi-skills club is a sports/games club for children in KS1 and Reception. At the club, the children learn new skills e.g. dribbling and apply them in games e.g. basketball. We also play games like cat and mouse and complete sports day type relays. 

Homework Club 

Homework Club is a place where our children are able to complete and discuss their homework in a calm and supportive environment. It enables them the support of an adult should they need it and a chance to discuss the homework in a smaller setting.

Football Club 

When it comes to selecting players for the school team, who take part in inter-school matches with local schools, children must consistently demonstrate that they are an ‘Always’ person with regards to their behaviour in school and must maintain their attendance at the club each week.

Drawing and Sketching Club 

Drawing and Sketching Club is open to children who have a passion for drawing.  Each week the children will learn to draw, step by step, creating technical lines and forming basic shapes to help create a variety of forms.  Fundamentally, the children will enhance their focus and concentration, increasing self-esteem and ultimately have fun!

Fencing Club 

The children at Boundary have been given this amazing opportunity this year to attend and learn to fence.  Fencing Club not only offers pupils the opportunity to learn a new discipline and improve fitness but it tests their strength, technique, tactical ability and control.  It is also an excellent means of learning respect through sport and building self-confidence.

Family Cooking (Adult and family Learning – Invite Only)

Family Cooking is a 5-week course which enables parents/carers to develop their cooking skills, whilst educating the children about healthy eating in a fun, nurturing environment.

Cooking with children is a great way to educate them about good nutrition, planning and preparing meals, reading food labels and discovering ways of planning healthy nutritious family meals on a budget; plus it can encourage them to eat healthy foods.  Working together with your child can cement bonds, improve relationships and encourage a shared enjoyment of the new activity. 

Archery Club

In this club, children learn how to safely shoot an arrow from a bow and aim at a target. Children will learn the basics skills of archery through engaging games and activities that progress throughout the term. As their confidence grows, games and activities will become more challenging.

Board Game Club

Board games are not only fun, as an added bonus, board games are also rich in learning opportunities. They satisfy your child’s competitive urges and the desire to master new skills and concepts, such as:

  • Number and shape recognition, grouping and counting
  • Letter recognition and reading
  • Visual perception and colour recognition
  • Eye-hand coordination and manual dexterity

Games don’t need to be overly academic to be educational, however. Just by virtue of playing them, board games can teach important social skills, such as communicating verbally, sharing, waiting, taking turns, and enjoying the interaction with others. Board games can foster the ability to focus and lengthen your child’s attention span by encouraging the completion of an exciting, enjoyable game. 

Dodgeball Club

Our high quality dodgeball sessions allow children to be ACTIVE, have FUN, make NEW FRIENDS and maintain a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE. The club will look to develop our pupils physically, technically and tactically. We create a safe, fun and motivating environment to help your child learn new skills within a much loved game.
