Fizz Pop Science

Fizz Pop science introduces children to the marvels of science in a fun and highly imaginative, inspiring environment! It is currently only year 5 and 6 but will run for year 3 and 4 children after Easter. So far we have focused on forces such as gravity and balance. It involved fun, hands on experiments and projects that bring science to life. Takes place on a Thursday for Years 5 and 6. It will be held on January 11th, 18th, 25th, February 1st and 8th.



Activsports run multi-sports after school clubs on Wednesdays for year 3 and 4 and Fridays for year 5 and 6. The aim of the club is to introduce new sports to children that may or may not have played before. Each session addresses many of the sports fundamentals that we would like to see children develop more than being placed into single sported environments at such young and influential ages.


Activsports cover many sports such as football, rugby, basketball, hockey, tennis, dodgeball etc. playing a different sport each week.


All sessions are run by fully qualified sports coaches who have worked in various sporting fields and gained a wide range of qualifications. Each coach has an enhanced CRB check along with a recognised Child Protection Training and First Aid qualifications.

It is aimed at those children who don't enjoy the typical traditional games that are played on the playground e.g. football which are highly competitive. It provides children with an extensive range of high quality equipment for children to explore and develop their own activities, games and skills. Children can participate in group activities or can work independently. The children are taught the importance of being active in a creative and motivating way.
