Secret Club 2018-2019

We run a Secret Club for Key Stage 1 children. Every term different children are invited to come to Secret Club after school and they get to take part in a range of activities to inspire and deepen their learning across the curriculum. See below for what has been happening… but don’t tell anyone!

22nd January 2019

In this session of secret club we learnt all about the importance of relaxation. We talked about why it is important to give yourself time to relax and how it keeps us feeling healthy both physically and mentally. We read the story ‘A Boy and a Bear’ By Lori Lite. In this story a boy teaches a polar bear how to relax using different breathing techniques. We pretended to be the bear and talked about who our bodies felt afterwards. We had a go at drawing pictures of our favourite places to relax.

We sung the ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ song and had a go at retelling it through ‘Story Massage’ with a partner. We all found this very relaxing!

Secret club children learnt about the art of ‘speed stacking’ this week. They watched a clip of the world record for speed stacking and were amazed at how quickly the cups were stacked and unstacked.

During secret club time we practised stacking the cups. The children were shown a few tips to help them. We had a go at timing ourselves and then we practised some more to see if we could improve our times, and they all did!
