at Endeavour Academy

At Endeavour Academy we make sure that we offer our children a variety of after school clubs which are interesting, exciting and allow the children to broaden their experiences. All our clubs are open to both girls and boys equally.

Listed below are the range of clubs that will be taking place this next half term with a description of each club detailed beneath to help you with deciding which club or clubs to attend. Please be aware that when signing up to a club you are expected to demonstrate our school core value of ‘Commitment’ by ensuring you attend each week.  All clubs will run from 3.15pm-4.15pm and children will need collecting by an adult (please no older siblings still at school).

 

If you would like your child to attend one of our after school clubs then please book on My Child At School (MCAS).

Spring Term 1 Clubs in detail:

Wild Challenge club

In this club you will work in a team to engage with nature through practical activities outdoors enabling you to develop key skills such as co-operation, communication and leadership – all while having lots of fun in the fresh air! As a member of this club you will be working towards gaining awards from the RSPB and The Wild Challenge and will receive individual rewards as well as helping the school to receive accreditation for their hard work.

Science club

If you are interested in science, then this is the club for you.  Each week you will get the opportunity to solve scientific problems through practical investigation. The activities will focus on thinking about, talking about, and doing science inspiring you to think and behave like scientists. There will be lots of opportunities for you to work scientifically as you set up enquiries to try and find your own answers to the questions that have been asked. This hands-on club will help you develop your skills in decision making, resilience, problem solving, cooperation, communication and more!

Dance club

This will be a fun and active club as part of our commitment to promoting active lifestyles. From balancing on your toes to raising your arms, dance uses the entire body and all of its muscle groups so through this club you will be able to improve your flexibility, coordination, balance, range of motion, stamina, muscle tone, strength and posture. In this club you will be learning lots of dance moves and have opportunities to create a variety of different performances to a range of songs, both in groups and solo enabling you to develop your self-confidence and interpersonal skills (not to mention your memory with remembering all the moves!). Dancing is a great form of exercise, and a love of dance from an early age can help motivate children to stay active as they grow into adults.

This is an exciting opportunity for those of you who love music and performing and who simply love to sing. By signing up to this club you will become a member of our school choir practising a range of songs over the weeks culminating in you taking part in a live concert at the Manchester Arena in early February (your families also get the opportunity to come along and watch you perform!). There will also be online resources available for you to carry on practising at home. This club supports our commitment to our children’s wellbeing through developing their self-belief, self-motivation, confidence, and ability to communicate as part of a team - which is invaluable! Add to this the numerous health benefits of singing in rehearsals, including breathing exercises to focus the mind - it’s no wonder that Young Voices is back by popular demand this year!
