Bees Knees

Our exciting After School Club at St John’s has been running since September 2009 and is well established.  We are proud to offer this facility to our school community for use during term times.  Bees Knees is open all week between 3.20pm and 6.00pm to help our parents and carers with childcare.  As we are a school run club we can offer familiar faces and a happy, relaxed, stimulating environment.

Although we offer a variety of fun activities, the children are given the freedom to organise their own play and a great range or resources is available to cater for all ages. We utilise the extensive school grounds and use these on a daily basis for the children to explore and play.
A healthy tea is provided within a social setting.
Some examples of the activities we provide are:
  • various art and craft activities including collage, drawing and painting 
  • sports including football, rounders and kwik cricket
  • board games
  • use of the computer suite
  • dressing-up
  • cookery
  • a quiet reading area to enjoy
  • constructive play
  • construction equipment

Bees Knees members thoughts about their club …
"Bees Knees has a warm atmosphere with friendly teaching assistants who listen to me about my troubles.  Being at Bees Knees has helped my confidence without a shadow of a doubt.  There is wit and banter amongst the children and of course the adults which makes our after school club something I look forward to at the start and the end of the day.  After school club rocks!"  Tom
"I love after school club because of all the games and toys and of course the staff."  Ellie
