Extra Curricular Activities

Music

There are many opportunities within the school to learn a variety of instruments, with specialist music teachers coming into school to teach the children in small groups.  At the end of most terms the children get an opportunity to show off their new found skills in an Assembly.  It is always a treat to see what they have achieved.  Children who play an instrument can also join the orchestra which rehearses on Friday mornings before school.

If your child wishes to learn an instrument, please contact the admin office.  Please note that there are waiting lists for some instruments

Our Eco-Warriors    

Each class has two Eco-Warriors - they have regular meetings and then feed back to their classes on how to help the environment, save energy and encourage everybody to recycle as much as they can.

Over the past 2 years Greenfields has achieved the Bronze Eco-Schools award followed by the Silver Eco-Schools award. The Silver award was presented to the Eco-warriors in November 2015 by Dr Paul Howe, the Bio-diversity officer at Hart Council.

Do you ever have difficulty picking your children up from school at the end of the day?  If so, we operate a playscheme from 3.30 - 5.30 pm.  Year 1 & 2 Oakwood children are collected at 3.15 pm and walked down to Greenfields.

Fees:          £5 per hour                       

Children are given a drink and two biscuits after registration.  Any child who goes to Swifts may join the Playscheme afterwards.  Children who attend Beavers or football sessions on Greenfields School field can change and be ready to go to their activity on time.

The Playscheme is open to children from Oakwood Year 1 to Greenfields Year 6 on a regular or one-off basis.  The child's name must be entered on the daily list held in the Greenfields school office by the parent or child (parents of Oakwood children can call Greenfields office to add their child's name to the list if they are not able to come in to school and sign them in personally).  Should you have a problem collecting your child from school, just telephone the school office and a message will be given to your child to attend the Playscheme and their name put on the list (parents of Oakwood children must notify Greenfields office by 12 noon in this event).

All children attending the Playscheme must be registered; the School Office has the relevant form or you can download it from the link at the bottom of this page.

We accept childcare vouchers; please see the playleader or contact the school office for details.
