I wanted to find out if children at my school liked after school clubs. I also wanted to make other after school clubs for pupils to enjoy.
What do children at my school think about after school clubs?
What I wanted to find out What kind of after school clubs people do What types of club they would be interested in. How many hours of after school clubs they do per week. How long they think an after school club should last.
My participants My participants were all the children in Key Stage 2 (45 children). However I only received 15 back. I chose these children because I thought they would understand the text. I also thought older children would give me more ideas about after school clubs.
My methods To collect my data I used a questionnaire I used a questionnaire because they were quicker to do than interviews, and because I could get more responses. I used mostly closed questions and a couple of open questions where people could write in boxes
Analysing my data I collected my data in a tally chart for each question. I did this because I just had to put marks in tables, so it was simple. I had a few open questions where people could write their answer. I just listed their answers because I didn’t get many responses.
Ethical issues To make my questionnaire ethical, I told participants not to write their name, so it was anonymous. I told them that it would be confidential and I gave them a choice whether to participate. After I had finished I destroyed the sheets. I made the questionnaire simple so younger children could read it.
The most popular club was hockey – 4 children took part The least popular clubs were football, Lets Get Physical, Art and Hula. Only one person I asked said they took part in these. This may be because some have been running for a while and people are bored. Out of the 15 people who replied, 3 do no clubs.
The club most people wanted to see was drama (7 children) 4 people wanted comic club, 3 First Aid, and 3 skateboarding The least popular were gaming, gym, music, and cooking (1 child)
The most common amount of hours was one (6 children) Least common was 3, and only 2 did 4 This might be because children may not have a lot of time to do lots of after school clubs, or the clubs might be full.
Most children think that clubs should last for one hour (10 children) One thought they should last half an hour, and 3 thought 2 hours.
Do you have any other comments about after school clubs at our school? Please can we have cooking? There should be more choice They are fun Would like roller skating
I have learnt that most children want to see new after school clubs. Of the people I asked, the most popular clubs were the new ones (hockey). Perhaps this shows that some people want new clubs. Most people I asked did an after school club. Only 3 of the people I asked did not do a club. Most children thought that a club should last one hour. That was the number of minutes the children did. so that just proves they’re happy with the schedule.
I think that my project went really well. The hardest part was the tallying. I would keep all of it the same if I did it again. If I had more answers it would make it harder because it would be confusing.
