We aim to inspire and foster our pupils’ passions, to enable the development of life-long skills and draw out every child’s potential.
Albion offers a wide range of Enrichment clubs after school. Clubs give our pupils the opportunity to develop new skills, make friends and build upon their confidence and life skills.
Our clubs include music, sports, dance, gardening, languages, arts & crafts, cookery and computing. They change termly so do check each term for what’s on offer.
Each club will start at 3.25pm and finish at 4.25pm and we ask that you collect your child promptly from the playground gate unless they are attending Extended Day. The teacher leading the club will escort children to Extended Day. Please be reminded that all children must be collected by 4.25pm, otherwise parents/carers may be charged an extra amount.
CLUBS START: Monday 13th January 2020
CLUBS FINISH: Thursday 2nd April 2020
NB Most clubs are for 11 weeks, but please note exceptions (see timetable).

Art Journal Club (Y4-6)
The Art Journal Club is for children of all artistic levels who want to learn a fun way of visual self expression. Using various art techniques in a book that we alter, we will explore different art techniques and use different mediums to create an ongoing journal.
If you take part in the skateboarding club at Albion Primary you may have already heard of Skates & Ladders, the fastest growing skateboard tuition company in the UK. Skates & Ladders work with schools, local councils and the Royal Parks of London, providing quality, tailored skateboard tuition for all ages and abilities, offering private 1-to-1 lessons, group lessons and weekend Skate Club sessions.
All instructors are First Aid qualified and DBS (formerly CRB) certified with 10 years of expert knowledge so you know when you book a lesson with Skates & Ladders, you get the highest quality service and instructors you can trust.
Gardening Club (Y1-6)
As all parts of the garden and the forest area are connected, in gardening club children help look after the fruits, herbs, vegetables, trees, and the chickens. They play an important role in composting, and looking after the worm farm. The gardening club decide what to grow next and sow the seeds, then they get to take the harvest home. We light fires, play nature themed games, tell stories, and create art work inspired by the garden in the colder months.
Spanish (Speak Like a Native)
Our club focuses on fun, play and discovery. In every session the children participate in games, tasks and group activities – in Spanish! The focus is on speaking and listening in a stress-free atmosphere. Language guides follow a programme each term based on key words and phrases. Book here.
Additional information available here.
In these sessions children will have a chance to explore the skills of hockey, Tag Rugby, handball and tennis. Children will work on technical skills (e.g. ball handling, evasion movements, passing, catching, footwork, spatial awareness, teamwork and match play) and transferable skills. Children learn to communicate and tactically work as a team, and have great fun and exercise in doing so!
In this football after school club we aim to teach the children basic ball manipulation skills such as controlling the ball, dribbling and changing directions. We also start to introduce team based games in which we challenge the children to use these skills in a team.
In these sessions we start to explain the importance of spatial awareness and passing and moving amongst a team. We also challenge the children to think about different scenarios during a football match and how they can affect these scenarios using the skills they have learnt.
In our Multisport Sessions children are taught to master basic movement skills such as running, jumping, throwing and catching. We also develop core skills such as balance, agility and co-ordination and begin to apply these in a range of activities.
We aim to develop core basketball skills such as dribbling, passing and shooting. We then look to apply these into game situations and challenge the children to know when to use different skills at different times of a game.
If you like to dance, move your body or would like to learn special tricks and skills, Street dance is the place to be. The children get to pick there favourite songs, learn choreographed dances, play dancing games and perform at shows.
Style of music: hip hop, pop, Rnb
In Art and Craft Club, pupils will develop their creativity skills whilst having fun! Children will work with a range of different materials and mediums, coming home each week with their proud creations.
We explore different colours and textures and often look at the world around us and different calendar events for inspiration. Art and craft club is all about using our imaginations and enjoying ourselves.
DD Mix Dance (Y1-4)
DDMIX dance club is an energetic class with many different dance genres. Children learn routines based on line dance, Charleston, hand jive, Japanese and Spanish to name a few. They work on choreography and are encouraged to have their own creative input. A great way to end the week!
Delivered by Emilie, a native French speaker, children will learn the basics of French through games, song and art. More information to follow!
Our Mandarin club is taught by our professional Mandarin teachers Xing and LiMin, from the Confucius Institute. Children learn about Chinese culture (e.g. festivals, customs, traditional costumes, food, legends, literature, music and crafts). Each lesson has a unique theme and children will learn to speak or write some Mandarin related to this.
