Extra Curricular Clubs
Extra Curricular Activities at Hampton Hargate Primary School
At Hampton Hargate there are many opportunities for learning to take place beyond normal school hours, both during lunchtime and after school. Every week there are a range of extra curricular activities offered to the children, hosted by staff at the school and specialist instructors and coaches. These give the children the opportunity to learn new skills and develop new interests.
Many sports activities are enjoyed by children at the school. Our football and netball clubs prove very popular. Athletics coaches also visit the school regularly, along with specialist coaches from Peterborough United football Club. We also offer Gymnastics club for lower years and a Dodgeball club.
Our Lego League club during the autumn term is a fantastic initiative for out talented mathematicians. It is run by undergraduates from Perkins, a local engineering company. The children have to build and program Lego robots. Their goal is taking part in an inter-school competition.
The school provides opportunities to learn a range of musical instruments from qualified instructors. Our violin, keyboard and brass lessons prove very popular, as does our guitar and singing lessons. Our school choir meet at lunchtimes and have taken part in concerts across Peterborough, perhaps most notably at events at Peterborough Cathedral.
Gardening and growing food on our school allotment is another popular activity, the children care for the allotment during weekly lunch time visits This has provided some excellent produce and has taught the children valuable new skills to help and encourage them to ‘grow their own’.
Further information on Clubs will be provided shortly..........
