Out of Hours Clubs
At Greet, we strive to make provision for children to take part in a variety of clubs that are supervised and structured by Greet staff. Throughout the year, the clubs are changed and developed since many of them are produced in consultation with the children; taking into account their interests and needs.
Breakfast Club will be open from 5th September 2019 at 8am, finishing at 8.45am. Parents will be charged £2.00 per day per child who attends. Payment must be made in advance via ParentMail.
Football Club is one of the most popular clubs at Greet so it is offered to both boys and girls from year 3 to year 6. Children, of varying ages, meet weekly to learn and develop new skills and techniques which involve dribbling, making short and long passes, scoring goals as well as other skills. Everyone has an awesome time particularly when they play mini games to test their skills.
Fast and energetic, Basketball is a game which involves a high level of skill and lots of teamwork so it is particularly popular amongst the children therefore we have a huge waiting list of interested children. Loving learning new skills, the children get the opportunity to dribble, pass (using chest pass, bounce pass and shoulder pass), shoot and tackle. It’s no wonder they are exhausted at the end of the session!
Sports Fun Club
Fun, fun and more fun! Sports Fun Club has a strong emphasis on fun and enjoyment where the children play a range of sports that help develop their motor skills. This club is designed for the younger children to help them become accustomed to staying in school after the school day has finished.
This club is aimed at younger children and is designed to introduce them to a wide range of sports that they may not be familiar with such as Volleyball, badminton and tennis. Through playing these sports, the children’s confidence increases as they work as part of a team and individually. Plenty of laughter can be heard as you walk past the hall on a Monday afternoon. A great start to the week!
Girls Sports Club
When you hear the sounds of laughter, you have come across our girls having fun during their Sports Club where the main emphasis is on enjoyment. The girls get the opportunity to play different sports each week that include: tennis, basketball, dodge-ball as well cricket; securing their basic skills in sport whilst developing their confidence as an individual and as part of a team.
Digital Art Club
Without a doubt, this club is extremely popular and is attended by many boys and girls. Using a range of Computing games and equipment, children learn to make posters and artwork in the style of many well known artists as well as learning how to use a variety of other creative software. Noticed by many teachers, the children who participate in this club are more confident during their Computing sessions.
After discovering that many of our children have ‘green,’ fingers, the Gardening Club was launched. Mucky yet marvellous, the children are thrilled to learn how to plant and grow flowers and vegetables, which once grown are used by our cooks to create tasty, healthy dishes which are served to the children at lunchtimes. As well as learning how to plant, children learn the skills of maintaining a garden. To top it all off, the children visit Botanical Gardens!
After all the hard work that the children do during the week, Youth Club allows the opportunity for the children to relax whilst taking part in a range of activities, like table tennis, pool, card games which are just a few to name, that builds children’s confidence and self-esteem; helping them to further develop their leadership and co-operation skills. A fabulous end to the week!
