Lanesfield School Clubs
We have many different clubs to interest our pupils. Whether it is singing and dancing or gardening, it’s a great opportunity to get involved with other children, to learn different skills or improve their existing knowledge. Take a look below at the wide variety of clubs we have on offer at Lanesfield.

It involves the children making storyboards, scenery and characters and then recording the animations and providing voice-overs.

Book club is run by Miss Fletcher in Purple class on Thursdays from 3:15pm – 4:15pm and is for all children in Key Stage 2. In Book Club children can enjoy reading books with friends. They choose, read, and discuss books together. During this time children bring the books to life with group discussions and activities. By interacting with their favourite books, children can increase their comprehension and ability to discuss what they know. When children meet with their friends to complete art projects and Web-based activities, they turn reading into a social activity, and that encourages them to keep reading.

This club is run by Mr Farrell. It is for years 3 and 4. In the club, we fold many simple models, with the occasional more complicated one for the more experienced origamists.
KS1 | Miss Foster
This club is for Key Stage 1 children and is run by Miss Foster. It is about planting, growing and looking after the environment. The aim is to give children an understanding of growth, decay and change over time.
