Clubhouse Autumn 1 - Week 6

Date: 10th Oct 2019 @ 4:40pm

Our hairdressers opened for business this week and has proved a huge hit, attracting a vast clientele.  Those in the waiting area had time to relax and read a comic, before being whisked away for a shampoo and set.  Mrs Marsh was treated to a special morning hair do, which looked delightful once the rollers were removed!  The training heads have been brushed, sprayed, rollered and styled in far too numerous ways to mention. We have some very skilled hairdressers, who have shown their prowess at both plaiting and curling.  This is definitely an area set to stay for some time!

As the hairdressers proved so popular, there was little time for baking, we did try out a new carrot biscuit recipe, which was quite tasty.  We will continue with these next week once the styling fever has abated.  By popular demand the snooker table has made a come back and a 3 a side football match was played on the fuzzball table.  We ended our week with a disco and dance - step aside Anton as Mrs Grayson could show you a few moves!!

Happy weekend everyone.

Clubhouse Autumn 1 - Week 5

Date: 4th Oct 2019 @ 4:20pm

This week we decided to try our hand at a spot of savoury cooking.  With the assistants of some very skilled commis chefs, a great many carrots and potatoes were peeled to make carrot and coriander soup.  In addition we have also made our own frozen yogurt dessert, using vanilla pouring yogurt, mango and banana.  It was decided that we would use a little less banana next time, however it was still a tasty alternative to ice-cream.

Despite some rainy days, we have kept ourselves active.  The children got themselves in a twist, with a game of Twister.  The spinner was spun and hands and feet were strategically placed on the coloured dots, taking great care not to fall.  Eventually everyone was tied up in a giant knot and had to start all over again!  We have also made use of the music room and a group of Year 5 and 6 children enjoyed an energetic game of dodge ball in the hall, whilst our younger members stayed behind for a game of musical statues and chairs.

Hoping everyone has a wonderful weekend.

 

Clubhouse Autumn 1 - Week 4

Date: 27th Sep 2019 @ 3:43pm

This week, we have aimed to improve our skipping skills.  First, the children lined up to practice jumping over a straight, still rope. We had some very keen participants and many mastered the art of jumping with two feet together.  For those ready, they advanced to successfully skipping with the long jump rope.  We will continue developing our skills as it's a great way to improve our coordination, cooperation and fitness.  In doors we had a chorus of requests for musical statues and bumps, so were able to get moving on the gloomy evenings!

Our Year 6 children have continued their buddy responsibilities in Clubhouse, and enjoyed showing the younger children new games.  We didn't follow The Great British Bake Off this week as the children searched through the cook books and made a joint decision to make chocolate chip cookies.  The Year 6 again led the activity weighing, mixing, measuring and demonstrating to the younger members what to do.  From feed back we believe they tasty pretty good!

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Clubhouse Autumn 1 - Week 3

Date: 20th Sep 2019 @ 6:51pm

This week, we have continued with our take on The Great British Bake Off, using a dairy product in our baking.  We opted not to emulate the Indian mishti sweets, which for those following the show proved quite time consuming and tricky.  Instead, we decided to recreate the classic bread and butter pudding. This easy, but often forgotten favourite proved a popular bake.  It also allowed the children to develop some practical life skills of spreading butter and cutting  bread.  The puddings certainly smelt and looked good when they came out of the oven, we just hope they proved to be a tasty dessert as well.

We have played lots of table top games.  There was much amazement while playing the Tooth Fairy Game, when a lost tooth was placed under the pillow and magically transformed into a golden coin. Everyone was kept guessing 'What am I' during a game of Headbanz.  The older children enjoyed a game of multiplayer chess where strategies, logic and tactics were put to the test.

Outdoors we have enjoyed the last of the Summer sun creating our own waterfall with the drainpipes and practicing our balancing skills walking on stilts.

Happy weekend.

 

Clubhouse Autumn 1 - Week 2

Date: 13th Sep 2019 @ 2:42pm

What a beautiful end to the week - lets hope our extended Summer has arrived!  We have had a busy week mirroring the Great British Bake Offf, with our very own bread week. There has been lots of mixing, measuring, kneading and watching as the yeast did its job. The delicious smell of baked bread was certainly very enticing and the rolls and loaves produced received some excellent reviews.  We had some good bakes, some a little flat, and some huge creations, which I am sure would of received a handshake from Paul Hollywood!

We've had lots of fun outside and danced away our bundles of energy to GoNoddle in the hall.  On Friday, we finished our week with popcorn and a movie.

Wishing everyone a happy sunny weekend.

 

 

Clubhouse Autumn 1 - Week 1

Date: 6th Sep 2019 @ 2:30pm

 

Welcome back, we hope everyone had a wonderful Summer break and feel refreshed for the new term.  It has been a busy first week in club.  Our new and old members have been settling in and getting to know everyone.  I don't think that there has been a part of the room which has not been explored! 

We've had lots of fun outside, making the most of the light nights and didn't let the inevitable rain stop us, as we joined in with Mrs Grayson's new games in the hall.  Where we witnessed some excellent snail impressions - I'll say no more!

Happy weekend everyone.
