Football is one of our most popular clubs at school and is run by Mr Youson in both the Autumn and Spring terms.
Year 5 and 6 have the opportunity to take part in the Coventry Catholic School League and Cup, Harry Shaw Cup, CCFC Community Cup and the Coventry School 5-a-Side tournament.
There is also a girls football club that runs in the spring term where they get the opportunity to play in the Girls Catholic Football Cup and Girls 5-a-side tournament.
Netball club is a club organised by Mrs Hands and Miss Corkerry. This club is run on a Tuesday after school with matches normally taking place during Monday and Tuesday after school. We follow the High 5 approach to the netball game. High 5 is a hugely popular entry game of netball which is played by all Primary Catholic schools in Coventry.
Each year, All Souls’ are lucky enough to a Mad Science after school club, which lasts for 6 weeks and is run by a real Mad Scientist! This popular club is only open to 15 lucky children who are eager to explore the world surrounding us through spectacular demonstrations, hands-on activities, and real world discussions that make learning about science fun!
The interactive, one-hour workshops are themed around particular areas of science and include such topics as rocketry, magnets, polymers, and even the science of toys. They offer children a chance to see just how cool science can be!
In each class, children are encouraged to give science a try and build their very own model rockets, periscopes, Mad Science putty, and more. Children even get to take home their science experiment to show Mums and Dads!
Do you want to increase your confidence and ability to listen to and challenge other people’s views whilst having the chance to argue and slam your hands on tables about topics you feel passionate about? If so, then debate club is for you!
For one term each year, Year 5 and 6 are invited to attend Debate Club, within which motions are decided and campaigns are created. Through various speaking and listening activities, children learn how to put forward their opinions in a structured manner and have lots of fun along the way!
This of course, ends with the exciting Big Debate and sometimes even entry into a city-wide competition!
Every Monday lunchtime a little tootling occurs in the Learning Hub as the recorder club takes to the floor! The children have the opportunity to accelerate their skills in music, learning new notes and how to play in harmony. The children all notice the difference it makes in music lessons.
We have a wonderful choir at All Souls school. All are welcome and no auditions required. The successes of the choir have included singing at the Genting Arena, in Stratford and even the Albert Hall! We have even won Choir of the Year on the local radio! However, the emphasis of the choir is to just enjoy singing, and judging by our increasing numbers, enjoyment is the key. The added bonus is that the children gain confidence, not just in singing, but in themselves, feeling capable of anything.
We started cooking club in school because we were finding that some children were very picky eaters and their parents were concerned over their limited diets. Their diet was restricted to the foods they found most appealing and they were unwilling to try new flavours and ingredients. We find that when they cook something themselves and become involved in the whole process, children become excited to taste what they’ve made. We also find that children who have poor self- esteem and confidence gain a great deal from cooking. Children have fun and get to take home what they make! Open to years 1 to 6.
This club is open to children in years 5 and 6.
Last term we tried our hand at several new skills, each of which help develop fine motor skills and dexterity. The children enjoyed making Ribbon flowers, felt birds and learned to finger knit.
This term we have made friendship bracelets, tried rag rug making using a small piece of rug canvas and scraps of fabric and yarn. Weaving is our latest skill and we will be looking to make a larger item using recycled materials.
After half term it is hoped to design and embroider the children’s own projects.
