December News in our Wrap around Care

‘Tis the season to be jolly! We have enjoyed lots of wonderful Christmas crafts in our breakfast and after school clubs over this past two weeks.

 

as well as enjoying some relaxing yoga during this busy and exciting time for the children!

The children are also really enjoying drawing tutorials with some brilliant work produced.

 Finally, I would just like to wish everyone a magical Christmas and I look forward to seeing you all next year!

November News in our Wrap around Care

STOP PRESS! New addition to our afterschool club on a Tuesday is Mini Golf – the children will learn sportsmanship and fair play as we build our own varied mini golf course each week then enjoy a few rounds on the course. Hand eye coordination is required for a good putt so this is a great way to help develop that whilst having fun!

 

Some more lovely activities in our Wrap around Care:

Body boards are always a hit!

October News in our Wrap around Care

It has been great to welcome more new children to Breakfast Club.  The children have enjoyed completing some tricky jigsaw puzzles, some even taking two mornings to complete as so many pieces, well done for persevering!

The children have also created some really interesting models with the Lego pieces they each have, it’s always a joy to listen to the details for each design. A firm favourite this week has been the “Simon Says” game, all of the children have been taking turns to be Simon and it is fantastic to see the children exercising their listening skills and have fun whilst doing this.

Also, in after school club we have been making lots of fabulous crafts, the children have enjoyed searching the field then making some leaf/flower art. We have also been busy preparing the outdoor raised beds for the winter too.

If your child(ren) would enjoy taking part in any of these lovely activities – please contact the school office for more details – see below
