This is open to all year groups and is run by an external provider after school on a Tuesday.
Cost: £4.00 per session
This is open to all from beginners to experienced players at lunchtime during some terms. We sometimes play other schools too!
This club combines learning to bake with reading and listening to stories together while things get cooking in the oven! It is open to Y1 children upwards and costs £4.50 a session.
This club runs for a time each year either after-school or at lunchtimes. There is no requirement to sing well, all that’s needed is enthusiasm!
The gardening club meets once a week during lunchtimes from March to October. The children enjoy growing flowers and vegetables from seeds and they planted all sorts of things in our pots, tyre beds and smart wooden raised beds. They enjoy a number of gardening activities including weeding, deadheading and especially like using secateurs to prune our various shrubs and fruit trees! As we are an Eco School we encourage the staff and children to compost their food and paper waste using the bins provided. The club uses the compost as everything we produce has been grown organically, in keeping with our eco status. The club is open to everyone in school.
Breakfast Family Fitness Club
This is held on a Tuesday morning before school from mid-spring to late autumn and is open to all families. Come along and jog or work out under the supervision of Ms Ashby Otun, one of our other teachers. In winter, the club runs indoors.
Forncett Clangers - Bell Ringing Group
The Forncett Clangers were formed in 2004 by two volunteer mums who recognised a need within the school for a musical group. Thanks to the fundraising efforts of the Friends of Forncett School, a set of bellplates (‘flat handbells’) was purchased, which are a lightweight alternative to traditional handbells. To date we have performed at many school and village events such as Harvest Festival, the Christmas Concert, Leavers’ Service and at the Village Fete. We have also taken part in a huge range of local events including stage performances, the Long Stratton Christmas Night, visiting local care centres to play Christmas carols for the residents, the Norfolk Music Festival (where we attained Highly Commended), the Wymondham Music Festival and even the odd radio appearance! We are justifiably very proud of our bell ringers, and their achievements so far. They have not only raised the profile of our school, but more importantly have gained confidence, the ability to work as a team and an interest in music that may otherwise have been overlooked. They don’t need to be particularly musical to become involved, just enthusiastic and ready to have lots of fun!
