Dramabones (Years 3-6)
The Dramabones beliefs:
Drama instils life skills. It allows children to express themselves; think creatively, and boost their empathy and emotional literacy.
It improves voice projection, articulation, fluency of language and confidence with persuasive speech. We encourage children to work collaboratively, nourishing their imaginations and building their selfesteem in a nurturing setting.
We will develop their confidence by trying new things and taking risks, making new friendships, work as a team, enhance concentration alongside verbal and non-verbal communication and give space to support everyone’s imaginations. Our curriculum is inclusive and robust; valuing both the drama process and end product.
We are really excited to begin the term and to meet and learn with your children.

Rookie Cooks (Years 4-6) Tuesdays and Wednesdays – Please note that booking for this club is directly via Rookie Cooks on 4th December not School Money. For booking information and to sign up please visit: www.rookiecooks.com .
Come and cook with us every Tuesday and Wednesday in the Spring Term!
On the menu … Apple and Blackberry Crumble, Stir Fry, Honey Cake, Samosas, Spooky Halloween Cookies, Five bean Chilli, Handmade chocolates in pretty boxes, Paneer and Sweet Potato Korma … and lots more!
Cooking is fun – especially if you’re between seven and twelve. Things to squeeze, knead, squirt, whisk, slice, grate and dice … and that’s before you get to enjoy the results!
There are so many things kids learn from cookery classes. They learn to follow recipes, to think ahead, weigh things accurately, chop things evenly and act sensibly around sharp knives and hot stoves. But they also learn to be creative. They learn when you can improvise with a recipe and when you can’t.
They learn to eat things that they think they don’t like (because everything tastes better when you’ve made it yourself). They learn that good, nutritious food is easy to make and completely delicious, and that working together leads to making new friends.

Activity Clubs F.A.Q.s

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. says Parents’ Evening or Fireworks Night – 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 Miss Duggan 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.
