Rockingham Primary School

At Rockingham we are committed to being an inclusive school, providing the best possible standard of education for every child.

Activities

Our aim at Rockingham Primary is to 'Broaden Horizons'.

Breakfast Club

At Rockingham Primary we offer a pre-booked, pre-paid breakfast club.

This is run by experienced staff who are employed by the school as Teaching Assistants and HLTAs.

The club starts at 8.00 am and children are taken to class at 8.40 am.   Places at breakfast clubs are limited and must be pre-booked through the office.  If you need further information, the staff in the school office will be happy to help.

 

School clubs

Throughout the year children in EYFS,  Key Stage One and Key Stage Two have the opportunity to participate in a variety of clubs. 

During Spring 2, we are running the following clubs after school:

Tuesday clubs from 3:05-4:00

Wednesday Clubs from 3:05 -4:00

 Music for EYFS with Mrs Thomson

Invitation only football club with Mr Brown

Art for KS1 with Miss Holmes

 Computer Game Building with Coach James

Film Club for KS1 with Mrs Emerton

 

Choir for KS2 with Ms Kirk

 

Netball club for Y5/6 with Miss Casswell

 

 

These clubs will start in the week beginning February 21st and run until the end of this term.

Our Year 4 pupils will receive “Soundstart” lessons for a 10 week period through Northamptonshire Music Performing Arts Trust.  Here they will learn to play the guitar. Children also have the opportunity to have individual or small group tuition in piano, guitar and drumming.  Further information about individual music tuition is available via the school office.

To enhance our learning experiences further, our children are also taken on phase trips as part of their studies and there is an opportunity for a residential trip for our year 6 children during their time at Rockingham.

We also welcome visitors in to school to provide activities and enrichment opportunities for our children and to deepen pupil's learning. Recent examples include Mrs Begley from the Lifeskills team, Simon Aston from NCC, our local vicar, our local police community support officer, school nurse and many more. 

 

Rockstars at Rockingham

Every week, our children have the opportunity to be Rockstars.  To be a Rockstar, a child needs to:

  • log their reading at least three times a week
  • complete their homework on Maths and Spelling Shed
  • remain 'green'
  • be ready to learn
  • remember their PE kit

 

All children who are able to complete these things are Rockstars.  This means they earn a token for our weekly Rockshop which is run by our house captains.  Tokens can be spent or banked to earn a bigger reward.

At the end of each half term, we organise a Platinum Rockstar Event for our children who have managed to be Rockstars for the entire half term.  The Junior Parliament help to decide what the events will be for each phase.  Our Platinum Rockstars are issued with a special ticket for their event and also get to wear their own clothes for the day.
