Summer Term 2017.18 - Clubs Calendar

 

In response to parental feedback at the end of last academic year and in consultation with staff, please see below the Clubs Calendar for Summer term 2017. This calendar details the clubs we are able to offer this term as extra-curricular activities, in addition to the children’s experiences as part of their class.

 

When a club is due to begin a letter will be sent home to allow you to put forward your child’s name. Some clubs will have limited numbers and you will be informed by staff if your child has been allocated a place. We aim to offer all children the opportunity to participate in a club, if numbers mean that we are oversubscribed for a particular club any children not offered a place will be put on the list for the next available club.

 

We continue to work hard on ensuring a balance of choices across different ages of children and also different types of activities to provide children with an introduction to a range of clubs that they may wish to pursue further outside of school. We are also continuing to offer most clubs over one half-term to ensure that we maximise the number of children who are able to participate across the school. All of our clubs rely on staff volunteers to run them outside of their other after school commitments and meetings, so we are proud of the choice and variety we are able to offer. 

 

If you have any further questions or queries about the clubs, please contact your class teacher .

GLADE HILL CHRISTMAS CHOIR

 

The choir have kick-started Christmas with the Bestwood Park Church, Christmas Event. We sang songs on stage along with other schools in the area, dressed in our Santa hats and tinsel.

 

Following that we have visited Residential Care Homes in Bestwood, to sing Christmas Carols. This year we have managed to visit Cherry Trees, Challond Court, Cornfields and Hawthorne Lodge.

 

The children love Singing the Christmas Carols and chatting to the residents. In return the homes give lovely treats to the children. Thank you for your warm welcome and your kind generosity! heart
