Lowther Endowed School

Achieving, Caring, Enjoying

After School Club

Our After School Club (ASC) runs from 3.35 pm - 5.30 pm (Monday - Friday) to provide affordable childcare to help balance work and family commitments.  It is run by Emma Daley. Emma is a qualified teaching assistant with years of experience.

 

Activities and Events

A programme of activities will run each week changing on a regular basis.  At Lowther we consider it essential that children, who have spent a full day at school, have lots of fun at ASC.  We really want them to enjoy being there.  While we take account of the school curriculum in designing the activities, the aim is not to provide extra teaching.

After School Club Programme Autumn Term:

 

We still have places available in all our After School Club weekly activities. Each activity is open to all children across the whole school. The activities last for the first hour of the club, until 4.30pm, so costs only £3.

 

Monday is Story Club.  This is a quiet club where we all have a hot chocolate with marshmallows, then move to the bean bags in the library area for stories followed by a craft activity.  Here we make crafts to contribute to the displays in the school hall and library. So far this term we have made a school bus with photos of all the children in the windows.

 

Tuesday is Cooking Club.  At present, we have 4 spaces left in this club. Last week we made muffins and are going to be making apple crumble, pizza and fruit skewers before the half term holidays.  Please can children bring a plastic container so they can take their cookery creations home with them.  We do ask for a voluntary contribution of £1 per child towards the cost of the ingredients each week (this can be paid in cash on the day).

 

Wednesday is Action Ants. Lee will be running a varied timetable of activities, suitable for all abilities and ages. There are currently 7 spaces left at this club.

 

Thursday is Science Club.  We have a different science based activity each week and will be  working towards completing our science certificate before the Christmas holidays. To achieve your science certificate you must attend at least 6 sessions. We are making volcanoes, building bridges, making rafts to float and learning about hedgehogs and hibernation before the half term holidays. There are 3 spaces left at science club.

 

Friday is Free Play.  Activities include outdoor play (weather permitting), table tennis, lego/duplo, hot wheels and K-nex.

Registration Form

As the club operates when school staff may have left, it makes sense for some information to be held by ASC staff.  We ask for a registration form (link below) to be completed to ensure that we know:

  • how to contact parents;
  • who to contact in an emergency;
  • who is authorised to collect your child / children;
  • any medical conditions in order for us to look after your child;

ASC is run by Lowther Endowed School so the school's policies and procedures apply.
