And just like that, it is half term!
We can’t believe how quickly this half term has gone and this week has been no exception.
The continuation of the sunny weather has meant that we have spent lots of time outside. The children particularly enjoyed listening to music and having a sing and a dance on Wednesday evening, it really felt like the start of the summer! They also created an assault course and enjoyed whizzing around on the scooters, making sure to dodge all of the cones – what great skills they all have!
The fun continued inside, where the children took part in various craft activities. On Thursday, the children designed their own bracelets, carefully selecting the right beads to create the desired look. They also became artist and were inspired by Yayoi Kusama (a dot art artist) to create their own dot art pictures using cotton buds and paint. The finished pieces looked so effective!
Our role play area has transformed into a travel agent, getting us all into the holiday spirit. The children enjoyed looking through the brochures to choose their selected holiday, they then booked their holidays and converted some money in our bureau de change. There was a buzz in the air as everyone discussed their dream holidays and the holidays that they have planned with their families.
We hope you all have a lovely week off, hopefully the sun keeps on shining!

We can’t believe how quickly this half term is going!
The sun has been shining and we have had another lovely week in club. As the weather has been so nice, we have spent lots of time outside. The children put on their creative hats and transformed our playground into an art gallery full of their fantastic pictures and designs using chalks. Some children decided to make their own games such as hopscotch, whilst others used their imaginations to create their own role play areas. Towards the end of the week, the children asked if they could clean the playground ready to create more designs, although we actually think the children had more fun playing with the water than using the chalk. We are looking forward to more summer evenings like this.
Inside, the construction area has been a hive of activity. The children have been constructing some incredible models with the Lego. They worked together to carefully select the pieces that they needed to create their visions. The children persisted with the task and showed great resilience when the models did not go to plan. However, the final results were fantastic and the children were all extremely proud.
You may also have noticed the installation of our Community Book Swap Box here at Trinity St. Peter's. This has been installed in memory of Margaret Blake, a past Governor here at TSP, who loved coming in to school and hearing children read. It is located on the wall (near the defibrillator) and the idea is for the whole community (adults and children) to use this book swap box so we can share our love for reading with all!
After looking at our suggestion’s poster in club, we have decided to turn our role play area into a garden centre. The children are waiting with anticipation to see how it turns out.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend, see you next week!

Eurovision fever has struck in Clubhouse!
We have had a fabulous week in club, celebrating all things Eurovision and showing off our performing arts skills. The children have loved jumping on our stage and dancing and singing their hearts out. They took it in turns to practice their acts and then perform to the rest of club – it felt like our very own Eurovision song contest. It was so nice to see some children really grow in confidence as the week went on. We definitely have some children destined to be on the stage!
The sunshine has brought a smile to everyone’s face this week and we have loved making the most of it in our outdoor area. The children requested to play some good old-fashioned playground games including duck, duck goose, what’s the time Mr Wolf and Granny’s footsteps. We are very excited about coming second in the recent Tesco community grant so we are looking forward to spending the money on some more outdoor equipment. Thanks again for all of your support to make this happen.
Inside, the children have enjoyed a variety of activities and table top games where we encouraged a bit of healthy competition by creating a tournament. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and have asked for more tournaments in the future – watch this space
We hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

What an exciting week we have had this week!
On Wednesday, we had a very special visit from King Charles III, who came to attended our afternoon tea party. The children were all extremely excited to see him and couldn’t wait to share all of their knowledge about London and the Royal family. The children especially enjoyed eating some delicious scones with lots of jam and cream – what a treat!
The festive spirit didn’t stop there, we have transformed the role play area into a London City scene complete with Big Ben and double decker bus. The children have been hopping on the bus to arrive at various locations across London including the Great Tower of London and Buckingham Palace. They then used the variety of dressing up clothes and masks to transform into character and take on the different roles of the Royal family.
In the craft area, the children have been taking part in lots of Coronation crafts. They carefully selected and cut out a variety of pictures and then used them to create a collage of the King. Some children also decided to make some paper plate crowns using lots of glitter and sequins, they were very excited about wearing them at home whilst watching the Coronation.
Outside, the children continued to enjoy being in the sunshine, playing lots of group games and whizzing around on the scooters. We have had some requests to have a picnic, so let’s hope the weather stays nice ready for next week.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend and enjoy all of your Coronation celebrations.

What a crafty week we have had!
The children have spent lots of time getting creative in club this week. Through lots of trial and error, the children used various equipment and materials from the junk modelling box to make some amazing models. The children used their imaginations to think of what they wanted to make and carefully selected the correct shapes and colours to create their finished products. The children were bursting with pride at the finished results. They then came up with the idea to turn our role play area into London in preparation for the King’s coronation. As a result of this, they wanted to make Big Ben out of cardboard boxes – we can’t wait to see the finished results next week!
As always, we have been making the most of the sunny evenings by spending lots of time outside. Last week, the children had asked for more playground balls to play with so they were very excited when they arrived this week. The children then worked together in teams to create different games for each group to play. The laughter and giggles filled the playground and they all seemed to have a great time.
In breakfast club, the children have been enjoying playing higher and lower. Suspense was in the air as the children predicted which card would come next. They enjoyed it so much that they decided to create their own versions of the game – what great imaginations.
We hope you all enjoy your long weekend, let’s hope the sun comes out.

What a fantastic first week back we have had! We can’t believe how much everyone has grown over the Easter holidays (it must be all of the Easter Eggs that everyone recieved).
It has been lovely welcoming everyone back this week after what sounded like a fun filled Easter holiday. Clubhouse has been filled with chatter as everyone discussed what they had been up to and the various places that people had visited.
The summer term has hopefully brought us the lovely sunny weather and the children have loved spending so much time outside this week. The children have enjoyed playing with bubbles, having games of tennis and whizzing around on the scooters. Let’s hope this lovely weather is here to stay.
We have converted our role play area into a train station in preparation for our London theme for the Kings Coronation. The children have all had a great time using their imaginations and hopping on the train until they arrived at the different locations. We even had some children show off their great acting skills by putting on different accents depending where the destination was. It has been lovely to see children of all ages engaging and collaborating with each other to imagine their dream destinations.
As always, our group games have been a big hit this week. The children have played some classic circle games and also created some of their own games to play in a group. Some older children took charge and carefully planned, set up and carried out their games. Laughter filled the air as the children all took part and they all enjoyed every minute of it.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend.

We cannot believe it is the end of term already! Time flies when you are having fun.
Well done to our design you own Easter Egg competition winners, but more importantly, well done to everyone who took part. We had some amazing designs and it was clear that the children spent a lot of time and effort creating their designs.
Our craft area has been extremely popular this week with lots of Easter crafts available to make. Some children enjoyed decorating some plaster of paris Easter eggs, whilst others carefully made some Easter bunny baskets and ears.
Following on from our Easter theme, we made and decorated some delicious Easter themed cakes. The children carefully read and followed the instructions and worked together to bake some yummy cakes – it was worth all of the mess.
As always, the children have loved going outside for fresh air and lots of playground games. Hopefully the weather continues to improve and we can get outside more after the Easter holidays.
We hope you all have a lovely, relaxing Easter break and we are looking forward to seeing you all in the summer term.

What a fantastic week we have had this week!
It has been packed with so many fun activities and lots of laughs along the way.
It was the start of our ‘design your own Easter Egg’ competition this week, where children of all ages were encouraged to design their own special egg. The children definitely put their creative hats on and carefully designed and decorated their eggs. We will continue to do this next week, so don't worry if you haven't had a chance to take part yet. We can’t wait to announce the winners on Thursday.
On Monday, some of the older children created an Easter Egg hunt for everyone to take part in where they had to find different coloured eggs around the room. They took their time to carefully think of the rules and then explain them to the other children. The older children then connected their learning to their maths lessons and showed some great mathematical skills as they added together to points of each team. Everyone had so much fun, that they requested to play it again on Wednesday!
Luckily, we have been able to get outside most nights this week for some fresh air. The children have loved whizzing around the playground on the bikes and scooters and also enjoyed some traditional playground games.
After lots of requests, we did some biscuit decorating on Tuesday. Together, we explored different types of spring flowers and then used a variety of ingredients to decorate the biscuits to look like the different flowers. It was very messy, but the finished results looked lovely and I’m sure they tasted even better.
Polite reminder that Clubhouse is not open on Friday 31st March as school finishes at 1pm.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend.

We have had such a fun week in club!
Teamwork has been a running theme this week, it has been so nice to see the children playing and working together to come up with different games and activities to take part in.
As the weather was a bit miserable on Monday, the children loved going to the hall to play lots of games. They played the floor is lava, duck duck goose and showed off their impressive dance moves when dancing to songs on go noodle.
On Wednesday, the children took part in a scavenger hunt in club to find an item beginning with each letter of the alphabet. The children were able to communicate effectively in their teams and work collaboratively to came up with some very creative ideas for each letter.
As usual, our craft area has been jam-packed with activities this week. From Mother’s Day gifts, to creative colouring and designing their own red noses. The children have been great at coming up with ideas for activities and crafts that they would like to make in the coming weeks.
We have had some very impressive looking models built in our construction area, it took a lot of perseverance and patience to carefully balance each block on top of each other until the children eventually made their vision. They were so proud of their finished results and loved showing off the pictures of the models to their grownups when they were collected.
At the end of the week, we dusted off our dancing shoes ready to learn some Irish dancing for St Patrick’s day. The children were incredible, we will have to give Michael Flatley a call and let him know we have some children ready to join Riverdance.
Another polite reminder to please keep putting your blue tokens in the box in Tesco so that we can make our outdoor area spectacular. We are currently doing so well and it would be lovely to see all the children’s faces light up if we were able to get some more equipment.
We hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

What a fantastic week we have had!
The children have loved being in our craft area this week and have been getting into the spirit of spring (even though the weather took a miserable turn towards the end of the week). They used a variety of materials and resources to decorate some spring animal pictures, it made us all very excited for the warmer weather. We have also been busy making some lovely surprises for our special people at home for Mother’s Day. The children are so excited to decorate them next week ready to give to their special people.
Our new air hockey table has been a big hit and all of the children have thoroughly enjoyed teaming up for some tournaments. Tournaments have been a running theme in club over the past few weeks, with the other children organising fun activities for all to join in with.
After the bad weather on Thursday, we decided to go to the hall to play a variety of games. The children loved playing splat, wink detective and duck, duck goose – you can’t beat some playground games.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend, let’s hope the weather brightens up a little bit.

What a wonderful week we have had.
The fun just hasn’t stopped this week in Clubhouse! Inside, the children have taken part in a wide variety of crafts and activities. At the beginning of the week, the children helped to make some playdough to use in our hungry caterpillar playdough area. They used various materials and craft accessories to create some beautiful butterflies – very imaginative. On Wednesday, we celebrated St David’s day by doing some dot art pictures of daffodils, the children used their prior knowledge to discuss what St David’s day is and why it is celebrated and then selected the colours they needed to create the daffodils.
On Thursday, excitement filled the air as various book characters arrived for World Book Day. The children loved reading the books that they had bought with them and even made some of their own stories and book covers. The role play area was a buzz of activity as everyone got into character and acted out copious amounts of stories.
The fun didn’t stop there, competition was in the air and the older children enjoyed taking part in various competitions such as bottle flipping, pool, challenge cups and tiddlywinks.
It has been lovely to get outside again and make the most of the fresh air, it was definitely good to burn off some of that excess energy whilst scooting around the playground.
Don’t forget, if you are ever in Tesco Formby then please pop your blue tokens into the Trinity St Peter’s Clubhouse box. All of your ongoing support is greatly appreciated and we are hoping that the money will go towards improving our outdoor area.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend!

It has been lovely welcoming everyone back into Clubhouse this week, we hope you enjoyed your break!
We have had such a busy first week back! The children had a ‘flippin’ great time on Tuesday for pancake day. They enjoyed practising their flipping techniques in the playdough area by manipulating the dough to create their pancakes and then using the frying pans to see how high they could flip then. The children then enjoyed eating some pancakes at snack time. We discussed what toppings we could have on top – there were some very interesting ideas. Continuing with our pancake themed week, some children made some pancake faces using different shapes and ingredients to make the different features of their faces.
Now that the nights are lighter, it has been lovely that we have been able to go outside to burn off a bit of extra energy. The children had so much fun whizzing around the playground on the scooters, walking with the stilts and developing their ball skills. Let’s hope this sunny weather continues!
Our role play area has been extremely popular this week with the arrival of some new dressing up clothes and shoes. It’s been lovely to see the children getting into character as they put on the various outfits, it made everyone excited for world book day next week. On Thursday, we were lucky enough to have some children put on a show, there was dancing, singing and lots of giggles. What a performance!
We hope you all have a lovely weekend.

What another very busy week we have had!
This week, we have continued with our space topic and been making lots of rockets, ready to blast off into space. The children were able to connect their learning to their maths lessons whilst doing this and named the various shapes that were needed in order to create the rocket. They followed the instructions well and helped each other when things got a little tricky – well done everyone!
Following on from our space theme, the children asked if they could create some space playdough using black food colouring and lots of glitter! Once the children had made the playdough, they thoroughly enjoyed squeezing, pinching and pulling it to create the different shapes and designs that they wanted.
Our craft table has been very busy this week, lots of children have got the writing bug! Some of the stories that were written were absolutely incredible and the children were so proud of the finished products.
It was lovely to see some of our older children sitting in the book corner with the younger children this week. The younger children thoroughly enjoyed having a book read to them by the older children and it was great to see how many ‘book worms’ we have in club.
The sun began to shine towards the end of the week and it made us all excited for the beginning of spring. Let’s hope that the sun keeps shining and we can begin to get outside more during club to burn off some of that extra energy that we all seem to have.
We hope you all have a fantastic weekend.

What a busy week we have had in club!
It has been lovely to welcome the new nursery children into club this week, they have settled really well and the older children have all been superstars in helping to show the new children around. They have really shown our ‘SHINE’ values.
Excitement has filled the air in Clubhouse this week as we started our Space topic. This term, we have decided to jump on our rockets and travel to space for a fun filled term of extra-terrestrial activities. This week, the children have used a variety of materials to create their own space masks. The children carefully followed the instructions and glued the items together and the finished results were amazing. The children then used their imaginations and masks to pretend that they were on the moon.
As always, the construction area has been very popular with the children this week. They have really enjoyed using the different construction materials to create their own unique designs. Following on from their topic in school, a few children even decided to make Stonehenge.
Unfortunately, the dark, rainy nights have still stopped us from going outside again this week but we are looking forward to when it brightens up and the nights get lighter. However, this hasn't stopped us from getting active in club. Some children showed off their gymnastic skills - we definitly have some contortionists in the making.
We hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Happy New Year! We hope you have all had a lovely, relaxing Christmas break.
It was a delight to welcome all of the children back into club this week and to see their lovely, smiley faces. The children excitedly shared with their friends and the staff what they had been up to over the Christmas period and all of the lovely gifts that they had received.
To celebrate the New Year, the children enjoyed decorating 2023 pictures and drawing pictures of all the fun activities that they took part in over the Christmas period.
Unfortunately, the weather stopped us from going outside this week, but this didn’t stop our fun. We played a few games of musical bumps and even took part in some ‘imove’ videos to burn off some extra energy. Let’s hope it dries up a bit by next week.
We have also been asking the children which topics they would like to cover this term in club. The children came up with some fantastic ideas and we can’t wait to get stuck in.
We are planning on making some paper mâché planets during space week, so if anyone has any newspapers that they do not need, we would be grateful if you could bring them into club.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend and we are looking forwards to seeing you all next week.

And just like that, it is Christmas!
We can’t believe we are at the end of another term and Christmas is just around the corner. The children have all had a fun packed, festive, final week in Clubhouse. Towards the beginning of the week, the children excitedly continued to decorate and make their Christmas decorations ready to take home and decorated their houses with.
On Wednesday, the children enjoyed playing a group game of Christmas bingo, where instead of numbers, Christmas items were called out. The children all showed great sportsmanship and team work when helping their friends to find the correct items on their sheets.
On Thursday, the children asked for a movie night, complete with hot chocolate and marshmallows. It definitely helped to get everyone into the festive spirit ready for the Christmas holidays.
We would like to thank you all for your kind wishes, cards and gifts and we wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
See you all in 2023!

We can not believe how quickly this week has flown by and we are one step closer to Christmas!
The children have been joining in with lots of Christmas crafts this week, including tree decorations, Christmas cards and some Christmas jewellery. They carefully selected the beads that they wanted to use for their bracelets and using some fantastic fine motor skills, threading the beads onto their bracelets to create some beautiful finished designs.
Our small world area has been very popular this week, the children used their imaginations to create detailed and playful worlds using the cars and the tracks. They then used a range of tools to inspire their play and worked together to make some wonderful imaginative worlds to play in.
Some of the older children initiated playing board games in club this week, they helped the younger children to identify colours and the count the spaces as they moved around the board. The children also showed some fantastic mathematic skills as they added the numbers together on the dice. Well done everyone!
We can not believe that the last week before Christmas is nearly here, just a polite reminder that Clubhouse is not open on Friday 16th December as the children finish at 1 pm.
We hope you all have a lovely, festive weekend!
Date: 1st Dec 2022 @ 5:26pm
And just like that, another week has disappeared and we are one step closer to Christmas!
Clubhouse has been all things festive this week. It was lovely to see the smiles on the children’s faces as they got into the Christmas spirit and decorated club on Wednesday. The Christmas music filled the air and so did the giggles and laughter.
The children have also been very crafty this week with lots of Christmas cards and Christmas crafts being made – don’t we all just love the glitter and sparkles!
Some children decided to make a very impressive train track this week and enjoyed taking it in turns to build different size trains. They then pushed the trains around the track to see if they would make it without breaking.
We have tried to get outside as much as possible this week, although the weather hasn’t always permitted us to do so. Instead, on some evenings, the children have enjoyed a cosy Christmas film and biscuit. We are hoping that we might be able to get into the hall next week to play some group games.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend!

We have had another fantastic week in Clubhouse!
To celebrate the start of the World Cup, we thought it was only fitting to decorate club for the occasion. Using some prior knowledge and a bit of help from staff (mainly the internet), the children carefully coloured in the flags for the different teams taking part in the World Cup for us then to hang around club. After a few requests from the older children, we have also been watching the 4pm matches in club which has been a nice change and made the dark nights a little easier to cope with.
The children have also been supporting Queenscourt and Woodlands Hospices this week by making and decorating Christmas decorations for the Christmas Tree Bonanza on Saturday 3rd December at Holy Trinity Church. To do this, the children decided to make some salt dough star decorations which they carefully cut out, baked and then decorated. They looked fantastic when they were done and we can’t wait to see the finished products on the Christmas trees.
Our table top games have also been very popular this week; Jenga, the game of life and even boggle have all been a hit. The children showed great English knowledge when trying to create words using the dice that had been rolled in boggle – there were definitely some ‘alien words’ thrown in.
We have had lots of activity in our construction area this week, the children have been working in teams to make the best models using different construction equipment. It was lovely to see children of all ages working together and helping each other.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Date: 17th Nov 2022 @ 5:22pm
And just like that, another week is over!
As it is Kindness week in TSP, we have been doing all things ‘kind’ in clubhouse this week. Lots of children helped with snack, the older children set up games for the younger children to play and we even designed some kindness posters to stick around club and cheer people up. It definitely made us all smile lots and the children were really great at spreading the kindness.
Our table top activities have been a big hit this week, especially on the rainy nights. The children learnt to play new card games and really enjoyed playing dominoes, even some of our nursery children had fun counting the dots and matching the dominoes correctly.
When it wasn’t raining, we made the most of our outdoor area. Some children decided to make a fruit stall and go around selling pieces of play fruit to their friends. They then used their great imaginations to concoct some delicious recipes in our outdoor kitchen.
Our construction area has been a hive of acitivty again this week with lots of children chosing to use the stickle bricks to design their own space ships. Watch out NASA!
To celebrate Children in Need on Friday, the children played ‘pin the mask on Pudsey’, made some Pudsey masks and also thoroughly enjoyed decorating their own Pudsey bears. We had some fantastic designs!
Lastly, a massive thank you to one of the parents for the very kind donation of a new play kitchen. The children have absolutely loved playing with it.
As always, we hope you all have a lovely weekend. See you next week.
Date: 10th Nov 2022 @ 2:46pm
We can’t believe that we are at the end of another week, and what a busy week we have had!
We have had a variety of craft activities in our craft area this week. In honour of Remembrance Day on Friday, the children created some poppy wreaths. The children were able to chose the correct colour paints for the poppies and used cotton buds instead of paint brushes to paint the wreaths creating different patterns and textures. Lots of children also enjoyed making some winter owls, selecting a variety of materials and using some fantastic cutting skills to cut out and assemble their owls.
On Thursday we had a very special treat! A great big thank you to team TSP for donating waffles to clubhouse for us all to enjoy. The children were very excited about having them as a treat and demolished them within seconds. They then had lots of energy for the rest of the evening so we decided to have a bit of a dance and sing along to some of their favourite songs which they all thoroughly enjoyed.
We definitely have some teachers in the making, the children have spent lots of time playing ‘teachers’ this week. The children relished in becoming the teachers and delivering their best writing and maths lessons to the other children - we even had one child who formed a band!
Thankfully, we have been able to get outside this week which the children all love! Please make sure that your children are bringing their coats to school as it is starting to become a bit cooler in the evenings.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Date: 4th Nov 2022 @ 4:34pm
What a lovely first week back we have had!
It was lovely to welcome the children back on Monday and hear all about the fun that they had over the half term holidays.
On Monday, we had some children who were very excited about Halloween, so we decided to make some skeleton crafts using cotton buds. First, the children used their prior knowledge to discuss the bones that might be in a skeleton and carefully cut down the cotton buds to the correct size. The children then stuck them onto black card to create the skeleton effect. The persistence paid off and the final products looked fantastic, the children couldn’t wait to take them home to decorate their houses.
Excitement filled the air this week in clubhouse as the children chatted about the filming, they had been doing in their classes for the kindness video. The children all had the buzz and asked to watch the previous year’s kindness videos for inspiration. They enjoyed watching and coming up with ideas that they could use in the video this year. We can’t wait for you all to see it.
Although the nights have been getting much darker, the children have still been able to spend some time outside before having their snack. They have enjoyed whizzing around on the scooters and setting up courses to race around. Hopefully the weather stays dry in the coming weeks and we can continue to do this.
We hope you all have a fantastic weekend and enjoy bonfire night - stay safe everyone.
Date: 20th Oct 2022 @ 1:57pm
And just like that, half term is here!
We have all had a lovely, very tiring first half term and I am sure everyone is ready for a well-deserved rest.
On Monday, the children created a hair salon in club where everyone was invited to get their hair styled. The children waited patiently and with much anticipation to see which hairstyle they were going to receive. We definitely have some budding hairdressers on our hands.
On Thursday, we decided to have our own disco in club for the younger children and the children who did not want to attend the school disco. The children loved requesting their own songs, showing off their dance moves and, in the process, burnt off lots of energy dancing around club.
The role play area has been very popular, especially with the younger children. They have really enjoyed dressing up, taking on the roles of different characters and using their fantastic imaginations within their play.
The nights are starting to get darker, but that isn’t stopping us from getting outside to play some group games and whizz around the playground on the scooters. Let’s hope the nights stay this mild after the half term.
We hope you all have a fantastic week off, and we can’t wait to see you all back, nice and refreshed.
Date: 13th Oct 2022 @ 2:24pm
We have had another busy week here in club!
After some requests from the children, we have been doing all things ‘autumn’ this week. The children have taken part in some nature hunts, where they explored their local surroundings and discovered lots of autumnal objects. The children then used their senses to examine all of their findings and then decided to make a nature collage with them. Following on from this, the children asked to make some autumn playdough where they worked together to collect the correct ingredients and weigh them out in order to make the perfect playdough which they thoroughly enjoyed playing with.
Outside, we have been playing some group games including duck, duck, goose, What’s the time, Mr Wolf and capture the flag. The children were great at taking turns and working together in teams which was lovely to see and a great time was had by all.
As always, the role play corner and dressing up has been very popular. It is amazing to see what great imaginations the children have and to see them engrossed in imaginative play.
We hope you have a lovely weekend, see you all next week for out final week before half term!
Date: 6th Oct 2022 @ 2:26pm
Another week has flown by and we are one step closer to half term.
The weather has taken a bit of a turn for the worst this week meaning that the children haven’t been able to spend as much time as they would have liked outside. However, they have enjoyed lots of other activities instead. Some children decided to create a talent show to brighten up a rainy day. We had singing, dancing and even some comedy acts thrown in. The children loved it and their smiley faces and laughter definitely brightened a gloomy evening.
In our craft area, the children have been getting creative and decided to make an assortment of pompom animals using lots of different craft materials. At times, it was very fiddly but the children persevered and they were very happy with their finished pieces.
The children are all feeling very autumnal and we have had some requests to make some autumn playdough which they are very excited to make next week. As a group, the children used the iPad to research the ingredients that we would need to make playdough and then helped to add it onto the shopping order ready for making on Monday.
We have been very lucky this week, and have had some new toys donated to club. The children in club are extremely grateful and have thoroughly enjoyed playing with them. We always appreciate any donations of pre-loved toys.
We hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
