Staff at Tirlebrook are passionate about providing our children with additional opportunities outside of the classroom learning environment. Many of the before and after school clubs on offer are inspired by the interests, skills and expertise of the staff who lead them; our clubs on offer also recognise and respond to the interests of the children. Each term, we offer a range of extra-curricular clubs and activities that inspire the children, challenge them, feed into their areas of interest and introduce them to new and exciting hobbies and skills.
Key Stage 2 Dance Club is always very popular and currently has over 30 members. Whether the children regularly attend dance groups outside of school, or whether they are completely new to dance, the group come together to have fun and choreograph a dance together. Recent group collaborations include choreographing and performing dances to the song ‘Rise’ and also 'Revolting Children' from the musical Matilda. Each week the children learn a sequence of steps, which are then rehearsed and refined over several weeks, culminating in performances for the school community. The children of Dance Club have also enjoyed performing at school events, including our Summer Fiesta!
At Chess Club, we welcome players of all abilities! Some children join with no knowledge of the game while others consider themselves to be experts! Those with no knowledge of this strategic game learn how to play by firstly being able to identify the pieces and discovering the rules for how they move. Children are then coached to play the game and gradually build their knowledge and confidence for playing against an opponent. The child experts among the group members support our new players with their moves, strategies and games while providing plenty of support and encouragement! The children look forward to our club tournaments but mostly, they look forward to challenging a teacher or school member of staff to a match and testing their strategic abilities!
