*Lunch Bunch is for Iverna Gardens children only. Victoria Road Clubs are open to Iverna Gardens and Victoria Road children.

The older children in the morning session are able to stay for some afternoons each week.

Please see below for the options available.

Lunch Bunch

(Monday-Friday afternoons)

A small and fun group who do art, craft, cooking and outings (concerts, library, field trips, visits to museums and galleries) during the afternoon. The children who do lunch bunch have their own special lunch bunch teacher. They have their lunch at school before getting on with the afternoon’s activities. Only seven children are able to stay everyday so the group is intimate, with lots of focus from the teacher. Lunch bunch is a good opportunity for children to socialize and for them to become used to a longer day in preparation for “big school”.

Bliss Club

A playful and nurturing afternoon where children can release energy, explore traditional yoga postures and breathing exercises, learn simple partner poses, engage in fun interactive yoga games and mindful activities, as well as relaxing and connecting mind, body and spirit.

Each class incorporates movement, music, storytelling, breath-work, postures, guided meditation and relaxation. The children will also have time for simple arts/crafts or cooking activities related to yogic themes such as peace, respect, gratitude, honesty and love.

This class is led by Miss Daisy, who is a qualified yoga instructor, and takes place at our sister school Victoria Road Montessori. The children walk over there with some teachers. They have their lunch there before starting the club. Pick up is at 3pm from Victoria Road.

Dance and Drama Club

(Thursday afternoon)

Our Dance and Drama club is a fun and lively class for boys and girls to develop self-confidence, body-control and teamwork. Children learn how to use their imagination and creativity to express different feelings, move in manifold ways, perform in front of an audience, and bring stories to life.

Each session incorporates movement with music, dance routines and improvisations as well as singing, storytelling, role-playing and lots of games, using costumes, puppets, instruments, art and craft, masks and props.

Every three weeks we explore a new theme linked to a story. Highlights from last term include going on a seaside pirate adventure and treasure hunt with Peter Pan, dressing up and showing our good table manners at Sleeping Beauty’s wedding, telling each other lies or truth (and learning how to move like Pinocchio), flying with Aladdin on the magic carpet to imaginary places and making wishes for ourselves and the world. At the end of each session we ‘rest our minds’ in a short meditation.

Dance and Drama club is taught by Miss Daisy and Miss Camilla. It takes place at our sister school, Victoria Road Montessori, on a Thursday afternoon. The children walk over to Victoria Road with some teachers. They have their lunch there before starting the club. Pick up is at 3pm from Victoria Road.
