At Rossington All Saints Academy we offer a range of enrichment opportunities for our students. This gives students the chance to continue learning or to further a passion they may have once the school day finishes. The clubs on offer this term have been a STEM club, which has involved completing several different science experiments, computer science programming and engineering projects. Dungeons and Dragons club where students have used their imagination and creativity to create a journey for their character. Club Español, run by our Spanish Assistant Mar, giving students the opportunity to further develop their skills and look in depth at Spanish culture and tradition. We also ran a Maths homework club, to give students the chance to get help on their homework using Sparx or Hegarty Maths.
We also offer a range of PE enrichment clubs, these have included: boys’ and girls’ football, badminton, basketball and table tennis. Our PE enrichment clubs have also led to a number of our students representing the Academy in regional and national competitions. Our Y7/8 and 9 boys football teams have made an excellent start to their season by going unbeaten in their first three games. Our KS3 and KS4 badminton team qualified for the Doncaster finals with our KS4 team finishing 2nd. The girls football team have also had a successful start to their season and were quarter finalists in the under 13s EFL cup.
All of our clubs have been extremely popular with 206 students attending enrichment clubs 916 times across the term.
Next half term sees five new clubs join our enrichment programme. Cooking club, History Film club, Dodgeball, KS3 Dance club and our RASA PE Leadership Academy will all be starting the first week back after Christmas. The full timetable is below.
This year at Rossington All Saints Academy in STEM club we have been looking at different themes; starting with a look at Forces we built and tested catapults, looked at the aerodynamics of aeroplanes and tested different designs to prevent damage to an egg! After October half-term, students took to programming with Mr. Hogg. This 6-week rotation allowed students to get to grips with coding and building a virtual pet. Last half-term we looked at volcanoes and how they are formed, while this half-term we are going to be investigating whether students could survive a zombie apocalypse!
In addition to STEM club, Rossington All Saints have been on several STEM trips! Students have had the pleasure of going to the Deep in Hull, an aquarium where students learn all about the world’s oceans and their inhabitants. Recently, Y9 students were also able to visit Magna for a day taking part in STEM discussions, investigating careers and interacting with scientists, inventors and engineers.
