Performing Arts

At the Paget Performing Arts club, the children love the chance to learn songs, dance some moves and have the chance to develop their acting skills.

At key points of the year, the children learn and perform to an audience, where possible. This in turn, helps to develop their confidence and self-esteem.

The club provides the children with the opportunity to develop new and existing skills, deepen their passions and gain confidence and enjoyment in performance.

The Arts are a unique form of communication and can influence the way in which we feel, think, and behave. They combine feelings and expression, thus enabling reflection and personal growth. The club supports the curriculum already in place, in guiding children to understand themselves and the world around them.

Tag Rugby

Tag rugby takes place on a Monday 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 it sweating.

TT Rockstars/Spelling Shed Club

This club is being run on Wednesday lunchtimes to help children access TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed.

TT Rockstars is a multiplication app that helps children learn their times tables and build up their speed.  Multiplication is a fundamental skill that children need to learn to help in all aspects of their maths work and TT Rockstars helps in a fun and engaging way.

Spelling Shed is again another app that we use in school to help children learn their spellings through different fun games.  Spellings may be set by the class teacher to learn and these will be available to practise or children can practise the words relevant to their year group.  

Both apps are a great way to expand children’s knowledge and if access to the internet at home is an issue this club will give children the time to have a go.

Vigorboarding

The Vigor Board is an exciting new alternative to the traditional physical activities.

There are two types of board available – the standard two-wheel board and the junior three-wheel board. The standard two-wheel board is easy to learn and use but for children with less confidence or poor balance the three-wheel junior board is the preferred option.
