Specialist Provider Club Overview 2019/20
Annual Schedule of Specialist Clubs
Fielding recognises that consistency and continuity in wrap around care is vital for working parents. Over the last year we have worked hard to develop a programme that will achieve this by offering:
- termly timetables and sign up for clubs
- clubs running on the same day and at the same time each term, wherever possible
- online booking system to allow parents to manage their own bookings
Whilst we would love to offer every club every term, this isn’t always possible due to seasons, space, tutor availability and demand.
Sign up for clubs continues to be through Laser. Each booking will be valid for one term (unless stated otherwise). Parents can then change activities or re-book before for the term ahead. Below is an overview of the clubs that may be on offer across the year.

Chess - mindful chess
Mindful Chess is a school that looks to equip players with both greater chess skills and concentration techniques to aid all areas of learning and development. Following working with one of Hong Kong’s most reputable chess schools Scholastic Chess, we are now looking to provide the same opportunities for children and adults in London.
We train students ranging from those that have never played before, to players furthering their games and those looking to compete at competition level. We believe it is fundamental for the learning process to be exciting, stimulating and as much as possible, tailored to each students individual way of learning.
We provide a series of brief concentration exercises that intend to help students focus. Although these exercises are done to bring greater focus to their chess, we have discovered students to find them beneficial across their studies.
We consider making the learning experience a fun enjoyable one to be fundamental to a student’s progress. As ones passion grows so does the speed at which they retain knowledge and improve.

Can’t sing? No such thing. Singing Club will help you uncover your voice. We get together in the Music Room after school on Wednesday to have fun singing. We sing in a variety of styles and explore part-singing too. If the Club members are keen, we can put on an end-of-year concert so we have something to work towards. According to one singing coach: “Singing fortifies health, widens culture, refines the intelligence, enriches the imagination, makes for happiness and endows life with an added zest.”
There are many skills needed to write a song. The three most obvious are: lyrics, melody, accompaniment. Over the weeks, Song-Writing Club will explore all of these. Alongside lyric and melody writing, children will use computer technology, will learn basic keyboard skills, and will explore the basis of harmony. Work will mainly be in pairs or small groups, and the intended result will be the ability to approach the tricky subject of writing a song.
Children who are interested in this Club might well have a knowledge of how to read music (through playing an instrument) but this, while useful, is not essential. They might well bring some existing skills, such as playing guitar or piano, but again this is not necessary. Children need have had no experience of writing a song, but they should be keen to learn how to express their artistic side through music and song. Children should also realise that there are no easy ways to learn this complex skill, but through hard work and practise, they will be given the tools with which to approach this activity.
Lessons are dynamic and fresh covering a good array of subjects and using different material to make sure that children leave with a good base of Spanish. I mix fun and play with sometimes more formal lessons. We learn through games, songs and role play so that children have fun. Children also learn about Spanish culture. Children signed up to the club will get first refusal of the places the following term.
Additional items- There is a small fee when children sign to the Spanish club to obtain the Spanish online resources.
