Children work on basic fitness but they also work on key skills to become England's future basketball stars. They work on handling skills, like dribbling the ball, and also movement around the basketball court. Mr Ruthven takes the club.
Boys' Football & Girls' Football
Football is one of our most popular clubs. We use the Astroturf at Leyton Sixth Form to learn new skills and prepare for competitions. The children compete in various leagues at the Score Centre (Leyton Orient Football Club).
Children start with theatre/group games as warm-up. In the first two weeks, children are introduced to some of the circus equipment, starting with juggling balls and spinning plates. During the following weeks, they will get to know diabolo, feather balance and other apparatus, becoming more and more familiar with circus itself.

This is an exciting club where children explore and learn about various artists. Children have created different forms of art using similar techniques to some of the world's most famous artists. KS1 is taken by our art coordinator, Ms Petridou, and KS2 is taken by our art specialist, Ms Hallissey.
We use the field at Leyton Sixth Form to develop our running stamina. Sessions include a warm-up, interval training, running drills and every second week a time trial to assess children’s progress. The club is led by Mr Ruthven.
We have a great dance provider. The children enjoy working together to create a routine – it’s great to see them smile as they dance to the music.
Design & Technology
Children have great fun learning about new materials including designing their own money boxes using papier-mâché.
This is an all-inclusive club, with children with all abilities taking part. We use the Val Sabin scheme to teach them key skills to become more confident gymnasts. Children who attend receive a Proficiency awards certificate and badge. The club is run by Mr Ruthven.
Information and Communciations Technology
ICT is changing the lives of everyone. Through teaching ICT, we equip children to participate in a rapidly changing world. This club is run by Miss Pawson
Lego & Board Games
Through the fun and games in these clubs, children are able to let their imagination flow, and build and design lots of exciting new buildings and objects using Lego. Children can also learn to play new board games and get their active minds working.
Children learn to use lots of new skills including being able to: find a space, freeze on the whistle, dribble the ball slowly and work with a partner in exchanging the ball.
This is a fantastic club where children develop fundamental movement skills. They also learn a range of throwing and catching skills, and use them to participate in team games. The club is taken by Ms Gibbons.
Feel the beat – children learn a range of musical instruments and get the opportunity to sing in the school choir, often performing around the borough.
Sewing & Weaving
Children get to have fun lacing and stringing; these activities help young children develop manual dexterity and manipulative skills.
With the weather improving, children enjoy the challenge of tennis. It's fun, great for fitness and for developing hand-eye coordination. ________________________________________________________________________________________________
