PRIMARY EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
Activities for primary pupils give the children an opportunity to develop different skills, to reinforce what is being taught in the classroom and to have some fun with their friends during the school day! A sample of the activities offered to primary pupils is given below.
"Makey Makey" Technology Club
Makey Makey is an invention kit for 21st century classrooms which allows pupils to explore a whole range of science topics from conductivity to computer programming. Projects might include building a simple circuit, writing some computer code or finding out whether bananas can conduct electricity - and then using them to play a tune!
Board Game Club
Board games are a great way for children to learn about working collaboratively, sharing with others and being resilient. They also help to reinforce many of the skills taught in the classroom like reading, planning and counting - and, just as importantly, they are great fun! Favourite games include Rummikub, Quirkle and many others, new and old.
The primary Book Club gives children an opportunity chance to explore new authors and different styles of literature, broadening and reinforcing the reading that they do in their lessons.
