Tuesday 24th October 2018

Day two of the first week of this autumn half-term and it’s still warm and sunny.

This morining was full on with hamper decorating: filled with food, they were a lovely reminder of human kindness and charity. The children also made gratitude and memory jars, including one that, rather suspiciously, had a hedgehog’s appearance.

We had a treasure hunt around Westwood Campus, or we did Geocoaching - look it up! - with a compas and field trip instructions. Happy to report that all the treats were found, untouched, under a bench in the wood. During this activity, metres and metres were walked, which brought us closer to the daily recommended 10,000 steps!

In the afternoon, the children were shown a video where a grandad choked on some food and his granddaughter applied First Aid.

Children practiced on their soft toys. Carol discussed what numbers should be called in case of emergency (999 & 112). The children were asked if they knew their addresses - again, just in case. They were extremely attentive and very engaged.

And the staff? Well, we enjoyed it all and will be here again tomorrow!

With best wishes,

Hello and welcome to this Autumn half-term Holiday Scheme.


>> The weather was glorious and the Indian summer we appear to be enjoying was the perfect backdrop to the autumn-themed activities for the bouncy bunch of children this Monday.


>> We kicked off with a lantern-making workshop delivered by the lovely Creative Station Coventry. Our lanterns may have had a LED glow inside but all around they were covered with all natural decorations - leaves and leaves from the parkland ground.


>> We went on with the plan, filling the day with den building, indoor games, apple bobbing and yet more - but different - lantern-making.


>> All in all, a nice day enhanced with super activities and enriched by a cool crowd.

>> Back for some more fun tomorrow.


>> With all good wishes,


>> The Holiday Scheme Team
