So what’s new?
Year 3 and 4 pupils can now join in the excitement and take part in experiments at Science Club, as Mother Nature returns to ensure children have fun with science.
The KG School Council debated our clubs and said they thought that basketball was as important as football, but underrated and under-represented at KG. Therefore, we have created our very own Basketball Club and we cannot wait for children to sign up to it!
Story Time Plus returns but is now available to Reception and Year 1 pupils only, and KG Choir is now FREE to members!
Gardening Club is definitely back and you are all invited to get involved with growing our very own plants, fruits and vegetables with Mr Murray (children accompanied by an adult please).
Piano and Groove School members will be automatically renewed, but please ensure you have paid your child’s fees for this term.
Clubs run for 10-weeks, except for Science Club and KG Choir, which run for 5-weeks for each age group, and Mr Bentz’s sports clubs will run for 9-weeks only due to planned paternity leave.
We reserve the right to cancel a club if not enough children sign up to it; however, we will issue a full refund if this becomes necessary.

Kelvin Grove has its very own Piano Club run by Mr Lea on a Thursday ‘day time’. Members are automatically renewed and pupils receive tuition from our very talented school pianist and freelance musician. Beginners learn in small groups of 4 pupils, and as they progress are moved to pairs and finally one-to-one lessons.
Regular practise is essential for any student to progress and make the most of this wonderful learning opportunity, therefore we ask parents/carers to support their child with daily 5+ minute practise sessions at home on a piano or keyboard. We also have a piano practise room in the school that children can book to use at lunch times, break times or after school.

Street Dance is led by Mr Nelson founder of Team Kaizen, a group of highly talented professionals who are truly committed to the art of dance. Recent TV credits for the team include ‘The 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony’, ‘The MOBOS’ & ‘The Brit Awards’ ceremonies, and the ‘Got To Dance’ final to boot!
Pupils will be taught some cool moves and the correct technique and history of street dance. Lessons are fun and energetic, and just challenging enough to encourage pupils of all abilities to truly express themselves.

Drama Club (Years 4 5 6)
Year 4 5 6 pupils will have the opportunity to join our new Drama Club and enjoy a fun and interesting introduction to the magical world of theatre!

Children will also develop an understanding of how these skills can be applied both inside and outside of the theatre, as well as a basic vocabulary of dramatic terms and concepts.
They will develop a basic understanding of theatre craft, and the ways in which making theatre is a collaboration of many different disciplines (costumes, lights, sound etc.).
At the end of the club run, we hope to present small pieces of theatre work at school assemblies.
Cost: £45 (10 week run)
Story Time Plus (Rec Year 1)
