At Blackwell, we offer a range of clubs for our students to widen their horizons and give them the chance to do fun and educational activities outside of class.
The details of our current (and upcoming) clubs are below. We are always looking for suggestions as to how to widen our provision - please let us know if there is anything you would like to see!
We run a lunchtime Code Club for our Key Stage 2 pupils. At the club, pupils learn to make their own code using three different coding languages - Scratch, HTML/CSS and Python.
Pupils get to make all kinds of cool and interesting things - their own computer games, posters, modern art, maps and so much more! Coding will be such an important skill in the future, so it's great to be able to offer our pupils a head start! For more details please see Mrs Knight.
A club for our Key Stage 2 pupils, at Drumming Club we learn the skills to make our own music using drums, both as individuals and as a group! You can usually hear us before you see us, but if you'd like to join in, please see Mr Ley!
We offer a Craft Club for some of students, each week at lunchtime with Mrs Simmonds. At Craft Club we use all different kinds of materials to create our very own works of art! Mrs Simmonds will contact you if you are selected for the Craft Club.
Music Tuition - ACEG
Our students have the opportunity to take part in music tuition run by an external provider, ACEG. Options available are guitar and piano tuition - a number of students are already taking part and enjoying learning to play music - we are hoping they will perform an assembly for us when they are confident enough!
