Bridge Club (Year 5-6)

DEVELOP LEARNING SKILLS THROUGH PLAY – Playing and learning the game of bridge has been demonstrated to develop not just maths skills but problem-solving and logical reasoning skills in children. Like chess, the strategic nature of the game develops these cross-curricular learning abilities but unlike chess, bridge is a partnership game, so it also develops social skills such as empathetic thinking and all while your child is having a lot of fun.

 

Coldfall is starting an after school bridge club from September, initially for children in years 5 and 6.  They will learn to play very simple variants at first, in order to keep it enjoyable and engaging, and teaching methods will use videos and quizzes as well as play to reinforce understanding.

You can find out more by looking at the website of New Tricks, the registered charity whose founder, Sue Johnson, will be running the club, at www.newtricksschools.org

 

If you would like your child to join the club, which will run on Tuesdays after school, then it would be a great start if you play card games with them over the summer holidays. Whether or not you are already a card playing family you can get all of the information and guidance you need on the website.  Sue is happy to be contacted (via the ‘Contact Us’ button on the website) to help or discuss.

 

Gymnastics (year 3-6) Kingfisher Gymnastics Club

We are delighted to announce new Gymnastics classes at Coldfall Primary School.

We are a long established Club since 1986 and registered with British Gymnastics and London Gymnastics since 1997.

 

We are winners of ‘Club of the Year’ through ‘Haringey Celebrating Sport’ Awards.

We gained distinctions through the National Development plan (Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Competitions) and have been awarded the ‘Best Club’ in the ‘Regional Gymnastics for All’ Competitions at level 3. Every year we gain many medals and trophies in the Regional Competitions.

We are very proud to hold the highly esteemed ‘GymMark’ accreditation from British Gymnastics. This recognises us as a ‘Safe, Effective & Child friendly’ Club.

 

Michelle Pawley who is Head Coach and Managing Director holds a Level 4 Women’s Artistic Qualification (Performance Coach). Kingfishers’ other coaches are highly experienced and qualified Level 2 ‘Women’s Artistic’ and ‘Gymnastics for All’ Coaches. All our staff hold current DBS & Safeguarding certificates.

 

In our classes we follow the British Gymnastics Proficiency Awards and also aim towards bringing the children up to a high standard. The children will be working on Floor, Table Vault, Springboards, Beams & Bars. We will focus on strength, flexibility, coordination and confidence. We also work to the Key Stage 1, 2 and 3 syllabus in order to give your child a head start at School.

We pride ourselves in having small groups and concentrate on the individual’s needs. We help and nurture each child to fulfil their personal ambitions and goals in their gymnastics career.

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.
