We offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities to our pupils, in addition to the normal curriculum.

The Heather Avenue Breakfast Club begins before the school day and The Heather Avenue After School Club takes place at the end of the school day. Both clubs are run by our school staff.
We run additional clubs during and after school - some are run by outside agencies and others by school staff. Please click on the items below to read more about each club.
At Homework Club, children keep busy doing things such as Maths homework. We select and use resources to help us solve math problems together. Children can also read to the teacher, go online to do Maths Wizz, Reading Eggs or Busy Things.
Children have the opportunity to play the belleplates in a dedicated team. Belleplates are hand held percussion instruments, broadly similar to hand bells. Children stand in a line, and have one or two belleplates each. All the belleplates are different, covering a range of one and a half octaves.
We play rhythms and simple tunes with melody and harmony.
Bridging the Gap Club
Children work with older members of the community. They talk with each other and do crafts together. It is a great way to bridge the gap between the older and younger generations. Sometimes the club go on a trip together. The club is run by ENYP (Equipping, Nurturing Young People).
Football in the Community led Club
The Multi-skills after-school club is run in conjunction with Norwich City Football Club's Football in the Community Programme.
Courses run for approximately 6 weeks and work on:
- FUNdamentals of movement
- Focus on agility, balance and co-ordination
- Various fun games
Certificates are awarded at the end of the course for all players.
The children bring a healthy snack or popcorn to the hall and something comfy to sit on. Everyone then enjoys watching the chosen film together just like at the pictures.
An external piano teacher comes into school during the school day to teach pupils individually.
Lessons are typically 20 minutes and the children attend in pairs. Note-reading, ear training, beats/rhythm and keyboard technique are all covered during the course of the year, as well as developing the expression of ideas through music.
A piece of music is sent home each week for the children to practice so an instrument is required - this doesn't need to be a piano, a keyboard is just as good during the beginner stage. Theory worksheets are sometimes sent home too, to be completed and returned the next week.
Science Lab Club
In 'Science Lab' Club, children will get to experience and experiment with great activities including: finger printing, detective searching and much more!
Space is limited so a first-come, first-served system applies.
The children will work on basic gymnastic skills and movements involving co-ordination, balance and agility. We develop simple routines working on the floor and apparatus.
A culmination of the club will be that a group of children will participate in our Schools Sports Partnership gymnastics competition. Regular attendance will be essential as the work done in the club sessions will lead to this competition.
