Term 3:

Fitness Fun:

Fitness Fun is a fun filled club and is a combination of aerobic activity and strength building exercises. The focus is on getting fit in a non-competitive environment. We undertake activities such as lunges, calf raises, jogging, skipping - to name just a few! Fitness circuits are a fun and interactive way for children to be physically active. They consist of several stations with different activities for the children to rotate through in a short period of time (usually one or two minutes). The children at Cuxton thoroughly enjoy this club.

Digital Art:

In Digital Art club, children are taught how to use the computer with increased control and skill to produce digital master pieces. Each week is themed with the opportunity for ‘free art’. Children are able to visit a range of supporting websites, use different programs and tools to express themselves and share work together.

Strictly Come Dancing:

Children in Years 3 and 4 have been learning how to Cha Cha Cha on a Monday night with Mrs Mulholland and Mrs Marrs. Each week they have been learning the next steps to a simple routine. Dues to the children picking it up so quickly, children began to learn a simple samba.

Computing:

During computer club, children have the opportunity to use the computers in a safe and learning environment with peer and adult supervision. Children have the freedom to use art programmes such as ‘paint’, type words or stories using’ Word’, visit safe game websites and to use approved coding programmes such as ‘Scratch’.

With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games and animations. Scratch helps young people to think creatively, reason systematically and work collaborate – essential skills for life in the 21st century.

 

Football:

During football club, Children participate in a variety of football drills to develop our football skills ranging from dribbling the ball, shooting and passing, all of which are essential when playing football. Children are encouraged to work as a team and even play mini games against each other.

Multisport(With our PE Coach Tom).:
Mondays Club

Dodgeball is a massive sport over in the States and it is slowly becoming more and more popular over here in England. There are a many variations of the game but the fundamentals remain the same;
eliminate all members of the opposing team by hitting them with thrown balls below the knee, catching a ball thrown by a member of the opposing team, or forcing them to move outside the court boundaries when a ball is thrown at them’

HOW GOOD DOES THAT SOUND?!

As well as playing the traditional version, we will also play variations of the game. They include; Jedi Dodgeball, Goal Shot Dodgeball, Island Dodgeball, Barrier Dodgeball & Cosmic Dodgeball. You thought traditional Dodgeball was good, wait until you have tried these versions!

Tuesday Club

This is a great opportunity for your child to experience and take part in a variety of sports they may never have played before! During the five week course, pupils get to participate in sports such as Basketball, Football, Dodgeball, Archery, Gymnastics, Hockey, Tag Rugby, Kwik Cricket and many more. The pupils will be taught the basic skills required to participate in these sports and will be awarded a Certificate at the end of the course for all their hard work, commitment and positive energy!

TT Rockstars:
When it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy are important – the more facts your child remembers, the easier it is for them to do harder calculations.

Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help students master the times tables- and the children at Cuxton LOVE IT! Children get to come along during lunch time to try and beat their score, challenge friends or improve their rock star status!

To be a Times Table Rock Star you need to answer any multiplication fact up to 12×12 in less than 3 seconds!

World famous rock musicians are the best at what they do because they've spent hours practising guitar chords, writing music or playing on the drums. It's just the same with times tables – all Times Table Rock Stars need to practise and practise and practise.

Lego:
Lego Club is a very popular lunchtime activity at Cuxton. It has been running since the beginning of the year and is held on a weekly basis. The purpose of the Club is to provide a fun and free lunchtime activity where children can design and build any ideas they wish.
The possibilities are limited only by their imagination.

Performing Arts:

Performing Arts Club, combines dance, drama and singing. Children have the opportunity to express themselves as in a safe, expressive and judgement free environment. Over the weeks children have been able to perform drama pieces based upon traditional fairy tales but with their own twist on them. Children have the opportunity to follow scripts, improvise or create their own pieces. Each session begins with a drama based game which helps equip children with skills and techniques they may find useful in the sessions to help with characterisation and improvisation.

Chess:

The world's most popular board game, easy to start hard to master! Chess has been played for over 600 years in its current form and as well as being a fun game for children, it has been proven as one of the best games to stimulate minds young and old.

Chess Club has been designed to take the absolute beginner, teach them the moves and rules and then move into the field of tactical mastery. Using both standard and modern learning techniques, the goal for anyone attending will be able to have a complete understanding of the game and to play at a strong level.

Art:

During Art Club children have the opportunity to be creative and imaginative with their skills. Each week there is a focus on a different artist, their work and art style. Children have the opportunity to discuss and share art appreciation, share any facts they know about the artists’ life and paint/draw in the artists’ style. During term 3 we have looked at Picasso, Seurat, Lichtenstein, and Kandinsky. Children are also given the opportunity to be their own artist and create their own paintings/master pieces.

Term 2:

Strictly Come Dancing:

Children in Years 1, 2 and 4 have been learning how to Cha Cha Cha on a Monday night with Mrs Mulholland and Mrs Shipway. Each week they have been learning the next steps to a simple routine. On their last week they performed their piece to their adults who came in to support them.

 

Karate:

Karate is the art of self-defence. Children have looked at the 3 target areas of the face (jodan), Chest area (chudan), and the lower area (gedan). The children have been looking at and learning the correct techniques to punch and block oncoming attacks, including rising block (age-uke), inside block (uchi-uke) and lower block (gedan berai). The children have also enjoyed learning several kicking techniques.

Due to the children learning different ways to move their body, a warm up is required and the children are able to explain the purpose of ensuing their body is fully stretched and ready to go.

Karate is a discipline which means there is a strong etiquette during lessons.

As an additional bonus, the children are beginning to be able to count to 10 in Japanese.

 

Football:

Tag Rugby:

At tag rugby club, children have lots of fun practising the skills of rugby without the element of physical contact. The children very much enjoy running and evading one another; chasing and tagging each other; and also working as part of a team.

Athletics:

‘The Cuxton Tigers’ is the name of our school Athletics Club. Children get the opportunity to part-take and keep fit by training for running or track and field events. Over the autumn term, the ‘Tigers’ trained hard to get their fitness up for long distance running. This meant lots of interval training, as well as great enthusiasm, and dedication from the children.

In our Athletics club, we are always striving for children to achieve their personal best time/ distance ‘PB’, in whatever event it is they feel is their strength. Although, the overall and most important aim, is that the children have fun and enjoy learning new skills!

Scooter:

Children at Cuxton are very lucky to have a scooter club on a Friday lunch time with Miss Harlin our Head Teacher. During the club, children learn how to use their scooter safely by checking it over before they scoot and the importance of wearing correct safety equipment. Over the weeks children have learnt how to move around a space, sometimes at speed, and how to use the break effectively.

Children are able to perform ‘tricks’ such as a hop jump whilst on their scooter and almost all are able to do this confidently.
