Our Forest School teacher will provide forest school activities when she is at the Club. 
Location of Club
The Holiday Club is based within the main school. The Club has full access to the school grounds and sports facilities. 
Timings

 
The Club will run from 9am to 4.30pm during the week and a cooked lunch is provided, along with snacks at break times (or a visit to the tuck shop for an ice cream or slushy). An extended day is available from 8am to 5.45pm at an additional charge and includes breakfast. 
Club Structure
Children are divided into groups, mainly based upon age, each has a group leader (on of our teachers) for the week. The day is broken up into sessions of about an hour in length, each providing a different activity. 
Specialised Activities
During the long holiday period reading and academic work dies off, but the Club builds in a short period of supervised quiet time each day. The children are encouraged to read, catch up on any homework or do some stimulating activity to keep their brain ticking over. The holiday club leaders are also on hand to assist.
