Due to the high demand last term we are now offering EIGHT clubs each week! Thank you to parents and children who continue to show enthusiasm and interest in our provision – we appreciate your support in developing the children’s activity levels and skills.
The local basketball club at Herne Bay High School now has two new players but it would be great if more children could take advantage of this for the longer term.
As always, football continues and Bob is also coaching school-based basketball in the hope that those children will continue at HBH. Football is always popular with many of the same children returning each term. This supports Bob and the newcomers in many ways such as helping to coach each other and acting as role models.
Our dance club has made a brilliant start to their routine based on ‘occupations’. Mrs Fordyce is an inspirational dance teacher and we are incredibly fortunate to have her on our staff.
Due to the popularity of the rugby sessions and the forthcoming rugby competition at HBH School we have once again asked Ms Richards to coach the children and develop their skills even further. They have already shown that they have remembered the control and skills they learnt in the autumn.
New for this year is a Speedstacking club. Our previous coaches have moved on from the school so Mrs Beach has been practising during the break to be ready for training some children for the competition at HBH School. Speedstacking is a relatively new sport involving hand-eye coordination to an extreme but is such a fun way to encourage children to participate in physical activity.
Mrs March has continued the healthy eating club for Year 2 children as we have such a long waiting list. She is so proud of the development in their culinary skills and knowledge as well as their enthusiasm. From healthy food to chocolate cake as a treat the children are encouraged to be as independent as possible in order to develop those all-important life skills.
The Change4Life club has been running since September during the school day for a small group of up to 16 children. Miss Asaiwi has been leading the club on Friday afternoons and the children have enjoyed a range of activities based on increasing enjoyment of physical activity, developing understanding of the social aspects of sport as well as tracking their own progress. The children love coming to the sessions as there is always something new to challenge them.
