A Typical Day Of Activities
WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE?
Whilst every day is different, Holiday Activities are structured within a broad theme and include specific planned activities . Our unique offering provides children with a choice of activities from each of the areas listed below, allowing for spontaneous ideas to be developed and expanded upon. For those attending Sport Xtra the days are structured with just sport in mind!
Every day your child will explore their creative side, through at least one planned activity. Girls and boys are also encouraged to initiate further activities throughout the session, using the School’s art resources. They have great fun, being inspired to develop their talents through a range of activities from drawing and painting, construction time with Lego, k'nex and hama beads; to cooking, modelling or messy play activities like bubble painting or large-scale group artwork.
As with the creative activities, staff plan a specific physical activity for each session. These include organised team games in our dedicated sports hall, or simply providing the children with the opportunity to run, skip and jump in the safe and secure School grounds.
Usually at least once a week our groups will take part in a session with an outside visitor or our own specially trained activity leader. These sessions provide children with a wide range of experiences, from visiting birds of prey, a fire engine crew, circus entertainers, the Science Museum and so many more.
Children are given the chance to express themselves and use their imagination within a safe and supportive environment. Staff actively encourage freedom of choice throughout the programme. No activity is compulsory, and children are able to exercise real freedom of choice, taking full responsibility for their play activities. As much time as possible is spent outdoors, where boys and girls use all the games equipment within the large and secure playground.
