Eggstra Special Holiday Fun

Pupils have been treated to plenty of “eggstra” special fun in our Holiday Clubs over the Easter break. From egg hunts to Easter themed baking and crafts there has been plenty of activities on offer. Children have also been able to enjoy splashing around in the school pool, playing on the bark, dancing in the dance studio with Mrs O’Brien and playing games on the sports fields. There have also been a large range of offsite trips available for both our Early Year Children and our older children.

Our Early Years Holiday Club cared for lots of children from Kindergarten 1 to Reception during the Easter holidays. Staff ensured that there were plenty of activities on hand to keep all of the children busy from the youngest to the oldest. During the first week, a group of excited children and staff made the short trip to the West Midlands Safari Park where they enjoyed a lovely day. The group took in all of the animals during their safari drive through the park, marvelling at the different animals up close. After lunch the group spent time exploring the remainder of the park including the Land of the Living Dinosaurs and Ice Age.

Each day the children were able to take part in baking, crafting and outdoor activities. The children were able to make and decorate Easter bunny baskets, baked Easter cupcakes and biscuits and made chocolate birds nests complete with chocolate eggs!

Mrs O’Brien ran dance sessions in the dance studios and all of the children thoroughly enjoyed getting creative.

During the second week our Early Years Holiday Club joined together with the older children from Activity Club to enjoy a trip to Hatton Adventure World. Despite the rather inclement weather when they set worth the day was brilliant success. The children were able to see some spring animals including lambs, piglets, chicks and ducks. The Sheep Grand National was a highlight for many! The enormous soft play and slides were also a massive hit with children of all ages – a few members of staff also appeared to be having lots of fun on the slides…

The children in Activity Club have had a busy couple of weeks. Including their Hatton Adventure World trip the children had a total of four different trips available to them. A trip to Cadburys’ World proved very popular with all of the chocoholics whilst an ice skating trip offered the adrenaline junkies a chance to show of their skating skills. The final trip of the holiday was a chilled out affair at the cinema where pupils relaxed in front of the big screen and enjoyed plenty of yummy snacks.

Our holiday clubs couldn’t run without our amazing staff who put so much effort into organising trips and activities to ensure the children all have the best time possible.
