Extra Curricular Clubs
At Sunny Bank, we offer a range of before and after school clubs. Some of the clubs are run by staff or our specialist PE coach and some are run by external providers. Extra-curricular activities are important to allow pupils to develop and excel in wider areas of the curriculum.
Clubs run by external providers have a nominal fee which is paid in a clearly labelled envelope along with the permission slip at the School Office. Most clubs are run over a half term and a targeted at specific year groups.
Pupils who take part in clubs, out of school, are recognised and their achievements are shared and celebrated in assemblies.
Technola Computing Club
All pupils receive a weekly Technola Computing session during school. In addition to this session, pupils have the opportunity to attend Computing Club which operates on a Friday, after school, and is taught by a specialist teacher.
All sessions are taught through enjoyment and participation and aim to build on children's computing knowledge, technical skills and confidence.
The three areas of computing are:
- Computer Science (coding)
- Digital Literacy
- Information Technology
A specialist teacher from ‘Tactile Arts’ hosts an after-school art club. These sessions are for pupils in Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. The aim of the session is to encourage creativity and give children a chance to express themselves outside their usual classroom environment. A wide range of art techniques, styles and mediums are taught and pupils are introduced to the possibilities of what art can be. During the sessions, pupils learn about famous artists and how art can be used for wellbeing, fun and creative freedom.
A range of sports clubs are available to pupils on a Wednesday and Thursday after school. These sporting activities change on a half-termly basis. Pupils can sign up for sports clubs throughout the year, such as netball, dance and football.
Bury Music Service, along with Miss Bott, invite pupils to join Choir Club on a Tuesday, after school. Choir attendees are given the opportunity to develop their musical ability within a group and individually. The choir have the chance to showcase throughout the year, attending events such as Young Voices. Members of the choir are role models during a whole-school singing assembly on a Wednesday morning.
