Week 2 - Wild Things
Wild Animals is our theme for this week and we will have animal handling including some weird and wonderful wild animals. Plus we will visit the cinema to see a movie and will have a variery of wild activities to take part in. More details coming soon.
Week 3 - Comedy
We are planning a comedy workshop, joke writing skills and will create some crazy fun games and have some general clowining around - all in the name of comedy.
Week 4 - Knights and Castles
This week we will visit a castle and undertake lots of medieval dressing up, crafts and maybe even a banquet and bouncy castle to end the summer!
As always the children can decide how much of the themed activities they participate in and there will be board games, books, construction toys, Lego, wet and sand play and the Wii to play on plus the outdoors area will be available for ball games, den building and chilling out and chatting with friends in the sun (fingers crossed!).

May Half Term Holiday Care - Master Chef Week
As the children absolutely love cooking, we decided to have a ‘Master Chef’ week inspired by cookery and ingredients, with a cooking activity every day.
Here was our daily menu:
Tuesday - We created our own Italian restaurant and kitchen role play area and played ‘set the table’ team games and had fun outside with popcorn relays. In the afternoon we baked vegetarian muffins and played some food based fun and games outdoors to get us running around such as the pea and (paper) straw game.
Wednesday - We had a taste test challenge where everyone got to be challengers and testers and we painted with food to create some amazing art. Outdoors we played ‘what’s the food?’ by feeling the shape of items in the sack and in the afternoon the children took part in a cookery workshop specially designed for Kidszone and run by Sarah from ‘Cook Stars’ where the children made their own sweet bake from scratch and will made an edible necklace too.
Thursday - Handmade pasta making in the morning with our very own Luciana and then we moved on to making rice sculptures outside. In the afternoon we went on a picnic to the park, and played team games.
Friday - It was Bake Off day with a carrot cake challenge. We designed and made carrot cakes and then decorated them in the afternoon using icing and piping bags. We also learned how to fold napkins into many different shapes and played a fruit salad circle game and took part in the balance challenge (involving food of course!).
