From Monday to Thursday, Mrs Matharu meets the needs of every individual child ensuring they feel relaxed and happy. On a Friday, Mrs West, another of our fantastic LSA’s at St. Mary’s, leads Sunrise Club.
To book Sunrise club, please use our online payment system Scopay (Tucasi).
Sunrise Breakfast Club Menu
December activities and theme days
Breakfast Club Fun
About us and our menu
In 2012 Mrs Ayres our newly appointed Head decided to introduce a Breakfast club to St Mary’s.
In September 2013 we were up and running!
Mrs Matharu was happy to take on this challenge and has been for the past 10 years!
We have had days where there has been 1 pupil attending to days where we have had 25 pupils attending, it has always been full of fun!
You will have noticed that our menu has pupil names, well let me share why they are so special…
Kempton’s Bake off Day!
James Kempton, was our first ever pupil to attend the breakfast club, he attended regularly until year 6. James thoroughly enjoyed baking days, he would set up baking area on his arrival and create amazing recipes. This inspired him to apply for Junior Bake off. We now bake every Wednesday so we can inspire budding bakers.
Sunrise club signature sandwich. A warm bap with fried egg, pan fried ham & melty cheese.
Morris Pagett, another one of our ex pupils who enjoyed attending the club, of course the egg and cheese muffin was his favourite with a dash of black pepper. His siblings attended the club too and loved the idea of naming this dish as the McMorris Muffin (Mc as it is very similar to the McMuffin at McDonald’s).
Freshly prepared pancakes with a selection of toppings to choose.
Poppy Thirlwall, attended the club on pancake days, she absolutely loved them. Her older siblings attended the club too and she would always tell us how much her brothers miss the club. Poppy wanted us to remember her as she paved her new path to a new school.
Ben’s Beans on Toast
Wholemeal toast with a blanket of warm baked beans.
Ben Dean Hughes, Ben has attended the club since year R, actually let us correct this, he has attended the club when he was at nursery age. He would come up to the club when dropping his sister and leave only after having a treat of raisins which was always in stock (He hasn’t forgotten and doesn’t let us forget either). He loves Beans on toast and he is our next budding baker too.
Scrambled egg, roasted ham & melty cheddar cheese encased in a warm tortilla.
Anneka Kendall, always intrigued about new recipes.
It was a day when Mrs Kempton gave us an inspiration to make Texas breakfast wraps to celebrate food around the world week. Anneka loved the wraps and we decided as it was so popular that we’ll add it to our menu.
At the beginning we didn’t have a set menu, so Anneka would ask for a wrap every day! We named it Anneka Wrap, it is served on a Thursday.
Mrs Matharu was so touched, on Anneka’s last day when Mrs Kendall approached her in tears asking if Anneka wrap would ever change the name. The answer was No! It will always remain Anneka wrap!
Evie’s Everything and Anything Day!
Create your own Breakfast recipe
Evie Newbury, one of our Head Pupils of September 2023! A bubbly character and always excited to try new things at the club and always bursting with ideas.
So why not call this Evie’s Everything and Anything Day!
On Friday, we try to finish off food in the fridge and any opened food packets so we can replenish on Monday. This is where the pupils create own recipes ideas using stock in fridge and cupboard.
Evie complained that it was originally called ‘Be Creative Day’ and not named after a pupil, hence its now officially named Evie’s Everything and Anything Day!
Pupil voice is important at St Mary’s.
