Extra curricular

We encourage children to participate in after school activities and clubs.  Throughout the year we offer a number of opportunities. 

 Sutton Dance Stars

The children at Sutton Upon Derwent Primary School love dancing and singing and have formed a group called Sutton Dance Stars under the guidance of Mrs Garcia.

We regularly meet to rehearse our routine during school lunchtime and have performed at the Church Fete, Sutton's own Party in the Playground and, most recently, at the Yorkshire Schools Dance Festival at York University. This was a fantastic experience for everyone involved and the children worked incredibly hard! 

Gardening Club

Join us in our lovely grounds where we go pond dipping in our wildlife area and grow vegetables and plants for selling to parents and visitors. 

On numerous occasions the club has won the school's category at Driffield Show for entering a basket of vegetables.

Pottery Club

Mrs Jill Husband runs a pottery club in the winter months where children are able to make items which Mrs Husband takes home to fire in her kiln ready for them to paint.  The children are able to take their items home when they are finished.  In the future we may even sell some on our market stall!

These hands on practical sessions support children’s individual development to produce original work.
