We believe that sports, experienced in a safe, engaging and supportive environment, is a significant factor in developing our children’s physical competence and confidence. Our children are also encouraged to appreciate the importance of a healthy lifestyle and be aware of the factors that affect them. Here at Our Lady Immaculate School we run a wide range of before and after school clubs. We believe that a full and varied programme provides children with opportunities to develop and mature and to experience activities in a fun and relaxed manner.
OLI News team
The OLI news team will research and write some of the articles for one of our regular student-led newsletters throughout the year. They will find out about events going on in our school and interview those involved to research the stories. .
Also, next academic year, our school will celebrate its 70th anniversary and throughout the year, we will be creating a souvenir magazine to mark this exciting occasion. The children will find out about how OLI has changed over the years and help to collate and write articles so that our school community and local community can read all about it. It will be shared at the end of the school year.
Come along and be part of this exciting project!
Key Stage 2 Choir
All children in Key Stage 2 are invited to join choir on Mondays after school. Research has shown that singing in a group is linked to an improved sense of happiness and wellbeing. During our sessions the children work together in learning lyrics and melodies in order to prepare for performances. During the summer term we will be working towards taking part in the Kingston Singing Festival which takes place at the Rose Theatre. The children have the opportunity to sing as part of the OLI choir with their own song as well as singing collaboratively with choirs from other schools in Kingston. I am really looking forward to welcoming as many children as possible to choir!
This club will be open to children of all running abilities in years 4 to 6, whether they are new to distance running or regularly attend Parkruns. The aim of this is very much for the participating children to achieve personal bests and embrace the joy of running.
We will be completing a range of running activities, which will build up week on week with the aim of improving children's fitness and running stamina.
We will meet in the Wellbeing Suite and start each session by preparing and sharing a drink and snack (please let me know of any allergies or dietary restrictions). We will chat and have an opportunity to share anything about our week or just listen to others. Each session will then include a mindfulness activity, sharing new strategies for regulation and exploring the environment of the Wellbeing Suite to promote relaxation.
