It’s that time again where the holiday scheme has come to an end. It has been a fantastic week, full of wonderful activities and opportunities. The children have thoroughly enjoyed themselves over this last week.

Today, we were lucky enough to take part in an amazing, creative Jurassic themed workshop led by Create Build and Learn. The children really were enthusiastic and loved every second building and creating with the Lego provided. There were many wonderful creations.

Also, we took the children outside; the younger group enjoyed playing Traffic Lights, changing their actions, and movements along to the changing light colours. Whereas, the older children played target shootout – practicing their aiming skills, outdoor snowball wars– with Team One taking the lead keeping the balls off their side, and enjoyed another game of Bulldog.

It has been a wonderful, busy, fun-filled week. We look forward to seeing many of you again for the Summer Holiday Scheme.

Best Wishes, Michaela, Katie, Estie, and the Rest of the Holiday Scheme Team.

Today at Holiday Scheme we were lucky enough to take part in forest school (luckily we had the sunshine), both groups got the chance to create some wicked dens and get nice and muddy! They created mud pies and other concoctions in the kitchen, built amazing dens and swings. The Older group also got the chance to work with clay.

This morning the older group took to the lovely weather outside playing Bulldog and Swim-fishy-swim, afterwards working in teams to create the best, successful marble run – many were successful.

This afternoon the younger group, got sticky with slime and creative with making bubble wand apparatuses, seeing who could blow the most and the biggest bubbles.

Another fun-filled day today at the holiday scheme, with this morning’s kite crafting and raft building, with many successful rafts floating.

This afternoon really got the children working on their team work and problem-solving abilities with Caris from Education Group, making shapes, organising words and coloured square tiles to make a cube or different patterns. The children also took their artwork to the floor, creating wonderful chalk pictures, such as robots and scenery.

All together, the children have had a fun-filled day.

Welcome back Holiday Scheme.

We have had a great start to the May half-term holiday scheme. In-between the rain showers we have had a fun filled, sporty day with relay races, flag races, and much more.

This was followed by lots of water activities this afternoon; the younger group played catch the water balloon and raced to place the water balloon at the end of the finish line passing it over their heads and under their legs, whereas the older group played badminton and table tennis before heading outside to try their hand at filling a bucket with water only using a small cup with a hole in the bottom. There was lots of team work involved, with the boys winning the deciding challenge.

It’s that time again, Easter Holiday Scheme has come to an end!

While it’s always sad when the end arrives, we still made sure we all had a fantastic last day. Our visitor today was Jim, an artist and puppet maker. He worked with all of the children showing them how to make bird puppets out of paper plates and egg-head puppets out of card. There were some amazing creations as the children let their imaginations run wild.

We also had some outside time today where the children took the jumbo chalks outside to make colourful pictures and messages on the floor. We all managed to finish our pictures before the rain came. The pavement has never looked so colourful!

We managed to get our usual dose of outside games in today as well with some great dodgeball skills and lots of exciting parachute games.

So the fun is over for this Holiday Scheme, but don’t forget that the Holiday Scheme returns in the May half-term and there are still spaces remaining if you would like to book onto it.

Today we had three very special visitors to the Holiday Scheme. Puck, Bottom and Fen (three beautiful owls) came in with Becky to meet the children. Everybody had a turn at holding each owl on a special leather glove on their left hand (we learnt that we use the left hand for holding so that the right hand is free for other tasks). Some children were even brave enough to stroke their faces against the owls' faces, which the owls really enjoy. Everybody learnt lots of interesting owl facts and had a great time.

The other half of the day was a visit to the Forest School near the nursery building. In between the rain storms, we managed to walk over to the Forest School and spend some time making dens for different kinds of animals. We had insect houses with flowers for decorations; mouse houses made from tree bark; and a larger den made from branches and tarpaulin which was big enough for some of the children to climb into.

Another fun-filled day at the Holiday Scheme; we can't believe there's only one day left!

There was a musical theme to today’s holiday scheme. Our older group were very creative making pan pipes out of straws and lollipop sticks, while our younger children made shakers from cups and a variety of noisy fillings. The children had great fun working out which food made the best noise in their shakers with the winner definitely being cornflakes!

The morning also saw some very enthusiastic game playing outside. Our older group learnt how to play Red Rover and by the end of the session were all experts in tactics, while our younger group had a fantastic time playing ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf?’

In the afternoon we had a visit from Chris who had the children creating interesting rhymes and making some great clapping rhythms.

We also created some interesting wildlife art outside using natural objects such as leaves and sticks, along with some beautiful metallic paints.

Today was a day of Easter-themed fun. We had a find the egg challenge and some great teamwork creating protective covers for our protect the egg challenge. The teams did so well that only one team's egg broke!

We also had a great time making delicious Cookie Monster treats out of cookies, dough, icing and much more, before finishing the day with some outdoor games.

What a fantastic day we have had today at the Holiday Scheme! The day started off with some outdoor games of Capture the Flag and Hula Blockers and then we got creative by making our own sports accessories and superhero capes.

After lunch we had more outside fun with themed games and created our own Bow and Arrows.

Well what a great first week back at the Holiday Scheme it has been!

Happy Easter!

With best wishes,

Katy, Maria, Estie and the Holiday Scheme Team
