Dance Year (Year 1 – 2) – Dance this term will taught by Omari Carter. Omari is a screendance practitioner based in North London and, for the past decade, has been choreographing, teaching and performing for music videos, film, tv and theatre. His work revolves around combining hip-hop dance influences with a contemporary choreographic process. Resulting in the purposeful creation of narratives told through dance and the camera.

​A first class honours degree in BA Performing Arts – studying dances within Hip Hop culture, dance-theatre and contemporary dance practices – led Omari to perform for 6 years in the west end and international touring productions of ‘Stomp!’. Now Omari focuses on choreographing, directing, performing and producing a varied reel of dance on film work with The Motion Dance Collective and other established brands and artists. As a filmmaker, Omari has created digital-dance and documentary content for Breakin’ Convention, Parkinson’s UK, and Pioneers History Dance Festival to name a few.

Knitting Club (Years 4-6 ) Come and knit a scarf! – This club will be lead by Ms Waldman.

Yarn, needles and a pattern provided, for use only at school – although your knitting is yours to keep at the end of term.

If you already know how to knit, just come along and pick up some needles and perhaps learn some new techniques. If not, you’ll find out how to cast on, how to do one or two knitting stitches and how to cast off. Either way it will be fun and creative!

Music Tuition – BOOKINGS CLOSED – Year 4 and 5 only

Lessons in flute, clarinet, saxophone and trumpet will be delivered by teachers from Haringey Music Hub. Lessons will be in groups of three and last for thirty minutes. They are open to children from year 4 and 5 only. Payment must be made in advance on a termly basis. Children are expected to take lessons for at least one year. This is a fantastic opportunity for children to learn an ensemble instrument alongside their friends and will result in opportunities for performances.

CLUBS Terms and Conditions

Frequently asked question about extra-curricular clubs

When do clubs run?

Clubs run for the duration of term time, from 3:40pm to 4:40pm.  If the school is open, clubs are on.  The only exception to this is when school closes early on the last day of term or if there is a special event e.g. film night in the summer term – you will not be charged for these days.

What if a club leader is absent?

There are several ways in which a club will be covered in the event of a club leader being absent:-

  • A member of Coldfall staff will cover the club
  • In some instances, the club leader will arrange cover in advance
  • The children at the club will take part in a club run by Mr Browning or Charlie that week

Why can’t I find the club I am looking for on School Money?

When a club is fully booked, they no longer appear on School Money.

Why do certain days have more clubs for KS1 or KS2?

We try very hard to have a good balance of clubs available to all year groups on any given day; however we are limited by the days that external club leaders are able to deliver their sessions. 

What happens to outdoor clubs during bad weather?

Unless the weather is extreme, all outdoor clubs will continue outside.  Please ensure your children have appropriate winter kit for outdoor sports. 

Why can’t more clubs be added to the timetable?

We are currently using all available spaces for extra-curricular clubs.  To maintain high standards, as well as for health and safety reasons, we do not have more than 20 children in a club unless an additional adult is available to support this.  We have added clubs to the program which has increased overall availability, but we cannot guarantee that your child will get a place in their first choice club.

My child really enjoyed a club.  Why has it been cancelled?

Clubs will be cancelled for the following reasons:-

  • Lack of demand
  • The club leader can no longer commit to delivering the club

 

Why don’t you keep a waiting list for clubs?

A waiting list would be very difficult for the school to maintain. It would take up a huge amount of time and would affect the day-to-day running of the office.  To make the system as fair as possible, we will inform parents and carers of when the club bookings will open in good time. 

 

What is your policy on refunds?

No refunds are available. Your child is committed to a club for one term.  If you chose for them to stop attending, you will not receive a refund.  It is also not possible to switch to another club during the term

In the unlikely event that your child has to be withdrawn from a club due to their behaviour, you will not receive a refund for the remaining sessions. 

Please note that if your child is collected late on three occasions in one term, they will lose their place at their club and you will not receive a refund for the remaining sessions.
