Board Game Club

Allowing children to engage in playing board games helps them practise essential cognitive skills, like problem solving. When children play board games they tend to laugh a lot which increases endorphins in the brain, those are chemicals that bring up the feeling of happiness. Sharing laughter and fun can promote empathy, compassion and trust with others.

During playing board games children communicate verbally, share, wait, take turns, and enjoy interacting with others which are crucial skills in developing social skills.

By encouraging children to play board games it helps children regulate their emotions and behaviour, learn to calm down when upset without hurting others, and learn how to win or lose in a controlled manner

Boxing

Boxing club is run for a specific target group of children. The children are there to manage self- esteem, learn self-control and improve self-confidence. The club is run by Dave, from Tyburn Boxing club.

Change4Life

Change4Life's aim is to inspire a broad coalition of people, including the NHS, local authorities, businesses, charities, schools, families, community leaders - in fact anyone working with families or individuals - to all play a part in improving the nation's health and well-being by encouraging everyone to eat well, move more and live longer. At Paget we are introducing children to different ways of making small changes to their lifestyle, food, and exercise and having fun doing it!

We have already tried some exotic fruits and looked at the sugar in our drinks, and we are taking part in our first Change 4 life festival.

Computer Club

Computing Club is a new addition to our extra-curricular offering this year and is facilitated by Mr Corbett. Children in years 4 to 6 will have an opportunity to develop a range of computing skills to further develop their interest and understanding of topics such as: Cryptography, Game Design, Typing Skills, Visual Programming and Graphics to name just a few.

 

Creative Arts

KS2 Creative Arts is on a Wednesday with Mrs Lovell. We recreate famous artworks as awll as exploring textures and colours to create our own unique pieces.

Creative Movement

Years 1 and 2 have been enjoying Dance Club every Monday night since September. The girls and boys have learnt the importance of exercise and during every session ensured they have warmed up and cooled down.

Over the past few weeks, the children have put together and learnt two dance routines. They were great fun to learn and they hope to perform to their parents/carers later in the year.

Dance

Key Stage 2 dance club is a mixture of learning choreographed routines to some of the pupils’ favourite songs each week that will be shown in termly showcases, working on their dance technique and even some strengthening exercises!

Dodgeball

Dodgeball Club is run every Wednesday morning and is open to all from Year 3, 4, 5 and 6. It is a fun and fast game that requires lots of stamina. We have been practicing lots and improving our skills.

Football

Football Club was organised by holding trials for the first ever Paget Year 3 and 4 Team, 5 and 6 Team and a Girls Team.

Each week involves player and team development. It includes practising individual ball skills, developing their levels of fitness, improving self confidence and understanding football as a game. The children have the opportunity to build upon our sporting values of teamwork, determination, passion, self-belief, respect and honesty.

 

Football Friday

Football Friday is a structured competitive level 1 school competition that offers children from Years 3 to 6 the opportunity to be involved in an interhouse competition and provide a meaningful experience. Having competitive sport in school develops a range of life skills, including the benefits of developing effective teamwork, resilience and leadership skills.

Friendship Club

At Friendship Club, we enjoy and participate in a variety of indoor and outdoor activities to promote the value of friendship. Within this, we promote three core key aspects of kindness, caring and being friendly to one another to so that we can use the skills and attitudes that we've learnt in our community.

Health and Fitness

Have fun whilst getting fit on a Friday morning. Come and join Miss Green (Paget’s very own Body Coach) for a HIIT workout and get that heart rate pumping, then relax and unwind with a brief yoga workout. Encouraging a healthy lifestyle is important at any age.

 

Hockey

We have been running since September. We have around ten players each session. Our sessions consist of some running, dribbling and ball skills. Over the last few weeks, we have built up these skills to play small games. We are now using more defending and attacking skills. We can stop the ball and control it; as well as use the space and our team members to the best effect.

In September we took part in a hockey tournament at Erdington Academy. We had a team of five taking part. It was good fun. We lost one game, drew one game and won our final game. The team did really well as they had only been playing for three weeks.

Homework Club

The club is designed to help support children in their homework that is a consolidation of lessons taught in school. It provides children with an opportunity to complete their homework on time and with help and encouragement from both peers and myself. We will also be completing times tables on a weekly basis, with division facts.

Let's Be Zen

A club to celebrate being healthy outside and in! A time to exercise, eat well and chill; and to learn about the healthy choices we can make.

Lunchtime Gardening

It was duly noted by staff, parents and children at school, that the outside garden area behind Year 1 had seen better days. A group was formed to tackle the issue on Monday lunchtimes. The group works tirelessly throughout the academic year. They weed, seed, clear and tidy and now things are beginning to look a lot better. It is still very much a work in progress. Our vision for moving forward is for us to be able to successfully grow our own veggies. The new lunch time group works outside this academic year so everyone that has expressed their interest at school is getting an opportunity to get involved.

Our willing band of volunteers have worked each week throughout the school grounds, battling with the leaves and debris. We have tried to add a bit of colour with some winter pansies but the frost got the better of them and so we re-planted them indoors. The children also planted snowdrops and daffodils to take home and monitor the growth. I am informed that they are taking some time to fully grow but most of the children have some sprouting Spring flowers to look forward to. This week, we also planted some Hyacinth bulbs, which were kindly donated by Radu, 5N and we are hoping that they grow a little quicker!

Netball

Netball Club takes place on a Monday after school with the children practising ball skills and playing mini matches. It's a great way for the children to get active, enjoy themselves and make new friends.

The children are able to develop the values of teamwork and perseverance in a new way through this sport.

Olympic Legacy

Olympic Legacy is for our Gifted and Talented pupils in KS2. The children have a regular weekly club to develop their sporting talent. At Paget we have lots of different sporting teams. Our teams are represented in three levels:

  • Level 1 - Intra Sport Competition
  • Level 2 - Inter Sport Competition
  • Level 3 – Sainsbury’s School Game Festivals

Working together, accepting decisions and understanding that people have different abilities allows us to grow up to be confident and active. We follow the Sainsbury's School Games values, which are: Honesty, Determination, Teamwork, Respect, Passion and Self-belief.

Pudding and Pie

Pudding and Pie Club is run for a specific target group of children. The children are there to improve self-confidence, self esteem and learn new skills. This term the children have had a lot of fun and been very creative in the kitchen. They have created some culinary master pieces in the form of pizza pin wheels, blueberry and white chocolate cookies and very berry bread rolls to name a few.

Experiencing new tastes and flavours is always a big part of the class and although reluctant at first, the children are always keen give things a try even though they may not always like it. This term we have tried a number of new flavours but favourites included carrot and orange juice, dried mango, black olives and rice crackers. We look forward to new creations and tastes next term.

Reading Club

The children have enjoyed reading a variety of picture books including those by Neil Gaimion, Chris Ridell, Chris Van Allsburg and Shaun Tan. Telling a story can come just from simple pictures and they have enjoyed telling stories verbally. The children have also written book reviews.

Standing Ovation Choir

The Standing Ovation choir is a great learning incentive for children, giving them an insight into singing as a group and at the same time enhancing their talents while giving them opportunities to perform at some of Birmingham's great venues!

Tag Rugby

Tag rugby takes place on a Friday after school. The sport originates from rugby league and substitutes the tackling for a belt with Velcro tags. This means tag rugby is not a full contact sport but instead minimal contact. The aim is to teach the KS2 children the basics of rugby and the values that go along with it such as, team work, courage, resilience, confidence, determination and perseverance. The lessons will be fun and active lessons that the children will always walk out of sweating.

Young Leaders

Our Young Leaders are represented by Year 5 and 6 pupils who work on various lunchtime activities across Foundation, KS1 and KS2.

The Young Leaders use a variety of games and activities to support and engage pupils in a fun, safe and active lunchtime. The children have the opportunity to build upon our Sporting values of teamwork, determination, passion, self-belief, respect and honesty.
