We have some clubs which are run after school by members of the school staff; these are: singing, science and maths and computer. In the summer term a football coach comes to run a football club.
Mrs Halsall runs calligraphy club, for year two children, on a Tuesday lunchtime. Calligraphy is the art of beautiful handwriting. The children use a special italic pen for calligraphy. We begin by creating handwriting patterns. The children then move on to forming lower and then uppercase letters in the italic style of calligraphy. Children will enjoy using their new skills to write down poems, create greeting cards and invitations.

Inspiration Tree run a Lego after school club on Wednesday. Their clubs explore, science, technology, architecture, engineering and art concepts using LEGO® bricks. The possibilities are limited only by the children's imagination. Beginning with a short talk from our instructor regarding the themed week and time to get to know the equipment, pupils work individually or in groups to construct their models at their own pace and in similar ability levels coming together in the latter part of the club to construct a joint model.
