Queen’s Drive Choir
Choir in KS2 is open to all year groups in the juniors. It is led by Mrs Kearvell and Mrs Woods. The choir has been involved in many amazing concerts and events. Each year we work hard to perform at the Manchester Arena as part of the Young Voices concert held during the Spring term.
Recorder club is available to children in KS2. It is led by Mrs Richardson, who teaches the children how to read simple music notation. The children are encouraged to perform in assemblies.
Recorder skills are also taught in Year 2 and a small group of enthusiastic children will have the opportunity to improve their ‘tooting’ skills in a small club held in the summer term with Mrs Kearvell.
We are very fortunate at Queen’s Drive to have a class set of ukuleles. We will be starting Ukulele club at the end of the Spring term and continue through the Summer term. The club will be open to a small group of Year 3 children.
The club will be run by Mrs Kearvell.
At Queen’s Drive we offer a range of Computing Clubs. Children in Year 2 take part in a Coding Club where they use the skills that they have acquired during lessons to code using a wider range of software, such as Scratch and Scratch Jr. Year 5 and 6 children have the opportunity to learn how to build websites using HTML code.
Gardening club will resume in the Spring term. Miss Beresford and Mrs Riding will be running the club so keep a look out for details.
Gardening club gives the children the opportunity to be creative outside. We focus on hands on activities with particular focus on seasonality of crops. There are several raised beds, where the children will plant potatoes, onions and herbs. The children will use the green house and have the responsibility of looking after the crops.
