Dear Parents and Carers,

I just wanted to send a letter about School Clubs for this half term. We’ll be offering a range of clubs and, where necessary, please register your interest by emailing the member of staff identified below. Where there is more interest than places, names will be drawn out of a hat. If a child misses out on a club, they will be given priority next time around.

– Gymnastics Team (Mondays after school) Gymnastics will be continuing this half term – the club is already full following the trials last term and will be taking place from Monday 3rd June. The club will continue to run from 3.30pm, with KS1 children being collected at 4.00pm and KS2 children being collected at 4.30pm from the KS2 yard.

– Rec-Year 6 Karate Club (Tuesdays, 3.30-4.30pm) This club continues, and is now open to all children from Reception to Year 6. Should anyone wish to join, just email the office (whitemere@gatedu.org). There is a charge of £2.50 per session for this club. Children will be collected from the KS2 yard at the end of each session.

– Year 4-6 Dance Club (Wednesdays, 3.30-4.30pm) We are very pleased to be able to offer this popular club once again and it is open to all children in Year 4, 5 and 6. If your child would like to take part, just email the office (whitemere@gatedu.org). There is a charge of £2.50 per session for this club. Children will be collected from the KS2 yard at the end of each session.

– Year 3-6 Chinese Calligraphy Club (Thursdays, 3.30-4.15pm) This popular club continues to be run by Mrs Meng-Birkett and is open to pupils in Years 3-6. There are still some places and they will learn to write Chinese characters, so it is almost more like an art club! If your child would like to take part, just email the office (whitemere@gatedu.org). There is no charge for this club.

– Year 1-3 Rugby Club (Thursdays, 3.30-4.15pm) This is a new and very exciting club which will be run by Rob King, a qualified rugby coach who will be teaching our KS1 children next half term. There is a charge of £2.50 per session for this club. Please email Miss Wilson (rachaelwilson@gatedu.org) if your child is interested in taking part. Children will be collected from the KS2 yard at the end of each session.

Clubs will begin in the first week after half term (w/c 3rd June) and end in the second last week of term apart from the Gymnastics Team which will practise each week until the competition on 18th June. Where necessary, the teachers leading the club will email you to confirm your child’s place – if you don’t hear from them, it means that unfortunately your child does not have a place this time but they will become a priority for the next round of clubs.

Best wishes,

Chris Boddy
