Clubhouse Autumn 1 Week 7

Date: 19th Oct 2018 @ 1:41pm

In club this week we have celebrated and joined in with 'National Baking Week'.  Children's and adult skills have been put to the test making biscuits, breakfast muffins and mini apple slices.  The older children have been encouraged to work independently, follow the instructions, weigh, measure and mix their own ingredients. Whist the younger children needed more assistance, they became apt at breaking eggs, mixing, chopping and pouring.  Each baking session was a merry mess-making activity, everyone who wished to get involved had a great time and enjoyed the fruits of their labours.  They even shared some with those who chose not to partake!

All of the children embraced no Wii week, and joined in with lots of new activities.  The football table proved to be extremely popular, musical band have been created, and their have been excellent junk model creations on the art table.  We will defiantly have to have a no technology week again!

Wishing everyone a wonderful half term break!

 

 

Clubhouse Autumn 1 Week 6

Date: 12th Oct 2018 @ 4:41pm

It has been a busy, active week in Clubhouse.  On Monday, we went on an Autumn hunt around the field.  We collected all things Autumnal and have then used these on the craft table, creating decorative lanterns and pictures.  As the weather was unseasonably warm, we stayed for a play on the field, making use of the equipment and space for a game of football.

Sadly, the second half of the week has not been as kind, instead we enjoyed board games and a Jenga challenge. We have also put on our boogie shoes, dancing and showing off our best moves. We ended the week with party games, before relaxing - to watch a movie!

We have enjoyed having new friends visit over the last two Wednesdays, whilst parents attended teacher meetings. Hopefully, everyone enjoyed their time with us.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you ever require adhoc or regular days again.

Wishing everyone a relaxing, enjoyable weekend.

Clubhouse Autumn 1 Week 5

Date: 4th Oct 2018 @ 5:43pm

  

What a whirlwind of a week it has been!  Time flies when you are having fun, and it has certainly flown by this week. Our mornings start early, and is a time when the children can enjoy their chosen breakfast and chat with friends, before going off to play. We encourage the children to serve themselves.  They have become very proficient at pouring, scooping and transferring their own drinks, cereal and milk. 

The start of the week was certainly messy, we made slime adding foam beads for texture. Also, on the art table, to celebrate the beginning of Autumn, we have experimented with modrock and have begun making a giant pumpkin! As the weather has not been as kind this week, for those who wanted to join in, we headed down to the hall  - making up our own dances and playing games.  

Happy weekend!

Clubhouse Autumn 1 Week 4

Date: 29th Sep 2018 @ 8:17am

What a beautiful week it has been! The evenings have been bright and warm enabling us to get outside and make the most of the light evenings before the dark nights are soon upon us.  The children are always very inclusive, encouraging the little ones to join in with different wide games, such as Hide and Seek and Granny's Footsteps.

Our home area has now changed into a shoe shop.  Feet have been measured and tap shoes tried and tested.  The pricing structure may need to be adjusted, otherwise it may go into liquidation, as the shoes are very reasonably priced!  On the craft table, we have continued the school harvest theme making scarecrows and heart bird feeders. 

Also, in support of the Macmillan Coffee Morning, this week we baked and decorated cakes. Luckily on Friday evening there were even some left for us to buy and try! 

Happy weekend everyone!

Clubhouse Autumn 1 Week 3

Date: 21st Sep 2018 @ 8:16am

     

This week, with the help of our resident gymnastic coach - Miss Leyland, the children have enjoyed perfecting their gym skills.  We certainly have some very flexible and talented young individuals.  They also played team games - getting themselves in a twist! Luckily, with a little team work and ingenuity they managed to untangle themselves.

Jigsaw puzzles have been popular this week especially with our younger members.  They have proved themselves to be very adept at connecting all the pieces!

Sadly, it looks like it could be a wet weekend, however we hope everyone has an enjoyable one and is able to recharge their batteries.

Clubhouse Autumn 1 Week 2

Date: 14th Sep 2018 @ 8:31am

    

It has been all things chocolate this week in Clubhouse.  In honour of Roald Dahl, who would have reached 102 years old, we have emulated one of his most loved and known characters, Willy Wonker, by creating our own chocolate.  We tested different flavours of chocolate before deciding which ingredients to include, to add our own magical twist.  Hopefully, some arrived home for all to test!

The children have also entertained us by creating their own music, dancing, playing instruments and singing to some popular songs and nursery rhymes. Elaborate, working instruments have also been made out of the construction toys! 

Happy weekend everyone!

Clubhouse Autumn Term 1 Week 1

Date: 6th Sep 2018 @ 1:36pm

     

Welcome back to all our new and existing members of Clubhouse, we hope everyone had a wonderful Summer!   It was lovely to see so many smiling faces, in their smart new uniforms arriving on Tuesday.  Hopefully, all have enjoyed their first week back at both school and club. 

As ever, the Children have bounced into Clubhouse, with lots of summer news and stories to share. This week, we have made the most of the warm evenings getting outside to play games, before the dark nights return.  Granny's footsteps remains popular, as well as the odd game of tennis.  On the craft table wonderful junk model creations have been produced and on Wednesday, some extremely tasty crispy cakes were made - and eaten!

Finally, at the end of last term we bid a fond farewell to Miss Dunbavin and Miss Pinnington, as they have now gone onto pastures new.  We would therefore like to introduce our new members of staff, Miss Hutchinson, Mrs Bryan and Miss Leyland.

Happy weekend everyone!
