Each term we offer a range of after school activities. Most of our after school activities are free, however there is a small cost to parents if their child attends cooking or music club. Below are some examples of the activities we offer. For the list of current after school activities on offer please see the letter below.
Robert Browning’s gardening club was formed alongside Friend’s of Nursery Row. Funding was secured by the Friend’s of Nursery Row to employ a specialist practitioner to lead weekly sessions. One afternoon every week a group of children leave the school in their wellies and head to the local park. Lessons include:
- Seed bombs- planting seeds in clay and dispersing them throughout the park
- Worm hotel – making a wormery within the park and observing the progress
- Wreath and Christmas card making – collecting different types of leaves to make rubbings
- Pruning – learning how to maintain trees and shrubs
Each term we invite parents and carers to take part in practical sessions with their children. We also usually run an after school gardening club for children with rather green fingers, some of the results can be seen around the school grounds.
