Music, Ball Skills and Dance sessions

Music Classes and other Extra-Curricular Classes


Child’s Play offers music workshops for our budding Beethoven’s and Bono’s.  They last for half an hour and are taken by a professional music teacher. Among other things, the children learn about rhythm and sound; learn to play percussion instruments; are introduced to “Jolly Phonics”; learn the basics of reading music and learn to play the recorder.  They are hugely popular and we now run four classes per week.

These workshops are an optional extra.  We ask for a voluntary contribution of £3.50 per session to cover the cost of the teacher.

Ball skills

The cricket coaches from Blackheath Cricket Club – Ronny and Danny – come in every Monday afternoon to run a “Ball-Skills” session – in the summer it is cricket based and in the winter months they use football and rugby to get the children active and develop their balls skills and co-ordination. They also run sessions outside of Child’s Play – their company is called “Matchfit Academy”. They run “mini’s” sessions for pre-school age children, sessions for schools, parties etc. Here is a link to their website:

We ask for a £1 per week voluntary contribution for these sessions.

Boogie Pumps

On a Wednesday afternoon we have a “Boogie Pumps” dance session where the children learn some fab street dance moves along side some of their favourite party tunes.  This is a new addition to our classes for September 2019.  Here’s a link to their website:

We ask for a voluntary contribution of £2 per session for these classes.
