SUMMER TERM 2021:
Dear parents, carers and children, we are really pleased to announce that we are running after school clubs for the duration of the Summer term.
In order to keep everyone safe, we are going to facilitate clubs in year group bubbles and where possible, staff will already work with the children on a daily basis or maintain social distancing. We are even facilitating some activities remotely! We know that facilitating clubs across key stages is a fantastic way for children to develop relationships with older and younger children and staff across the school, but hope that you will understand that by doing this we are able to keep children as safe as possible, following the latest guidance. By doing this, we are unfortunately not able to offer as many activities as possible but will try and offer everyone at least one choice.
We would like to encourage outdoor learning, so will be offering all year groups in KS2 a sporting club and in KS1 Opal. Pupils will be outside in all weather – so will need to have an appropriate coat and footwear. Mr Holt has arranged it so that KS2 clubs are hosted on the days that they children will have PE to save getting changed.

Mr Cain will be facilitating ‘Digital Leaders’ for selected pupils in Year 4 and 5 showing an interest, expertise and passion in Computing. Leaders will help to support children across the school with their expertise and knowledge, whilst also encouraging online safety. Leaders will meet on a Monday evening after school till 4:15pm.
Mrs Clark and Miss Brooks are establishing a socially distanced choir/performing arts group for pupils within KS2. Club will run on a Thursday evening.
As we are so keen on Science, we are establishing our own Mad Science clubs in KS1. Mrs Hunt will facilitate a range of science investigations and activities, working first with Y2 this half term and then Year 1 next half term.
‘What’s going on?’
At Benedict Biscop we actively encourage our pupils to have a voice and a say in what is happening across school. We are establishing a team of vocal individuals who would be keen to share with our community what is happening in the world and at BB. We are looking for modern day historians, who can document history in the making and share their views, via our newsletters and website, in both written and digital media.
School will continue to offer additional boaster sessions before and after school for individual pupils as part of our catch-up strategy. Staff will contact parents to offer support where needed.
