SJM eXtra After School Homework Provision

SJMeXtra: The details!


At 3:15pm @SJMeXtra we welcome the children at the school canteen. After a healthy snack and a drink (and learning how to make a sandwich!) the children have a short chill out session with colouring, word searches or mindfulness sheets

Then it’s a short hop down to The Lodge for homework club and a carousel of themed crafts and games. Once all of the children are settled with activities, one of the educators on the SJMeXtra Team will listen to each individual read, help them practise their spellings or support them while they complete their online homework such as Timetable Rockstars (TTRS) or MyMaths.

The weather decides what happens next, every week is different. Games, learning skills, communicating, crafting, creating and lots of outdoor play with something for everyone. Example activities include baking mug cakes, painting poppy stones, creating rainbows, learning to ride a bike, bug hunts, gardening, investigating electronics, inventing aliens with playdough, growing crystals, constructing marble runs, junk modelling, making paper dragons and dinosaurs, busting some moves with Let’s Dance, competing with fun quizzes, making pompom positivity monsters, role play in our little shop and lots and lots of Lego construction challenges, to name but a few!

If time allows, we wind down with a story or short movie ready for pick up at the wooden gate at 5.30pm. (There is an option to pick your child up at 4.30pm.)

If your child wants to join an afterschool club run by the class teachers’,(3.15pm-4.15pm) this is included in the price and the children have their snack at 4.15pm.

Contact Mrs Hine in the school office, 01530 270330 for more details, including a copy of our pricing and terms and conditions.

All of our staff are DBS checked, receive safeguarding and first aid training, and are employed by the school.

@SJMeXtra we follow all of the school policies and procedures including those rewarding positive behaviour and dealing with challenges. We regularly share photos of WOW moments on the school Seesaw system so that you can see what fun your child is having!
