See below for what we have in store each day.

Monday 29 July

Today we will kick the rain and grey skies into touch and start the summer with lots of soapy water play and a game of football or rounders (children’s choice) at the local park. We will make pizza muffins with ham & cheese and suncatchers. We will have a beauty bar with nail varnish, glitter tattoos and henna to add a touch of glamour to our summer days.

Tuesday 30 July

We will enjoy a picnic in the local park today along with some traditional games including an egg & spoon race. We will make ‘All About my Summer’ posters to get us excited about the summer weeks ahead and we will cool down by making ice cream in a bag. We will construct sensory bottles with glitter and pom poms and make key rings and bracelets.

Wednesday 31 July

We have a bouncy castle to jump about in today, combined with a picnic in Kidwell’s park where we will enjoy some group games and spend time on the play equipment. We will make our own lemonade stands and enjoy some sensory play with jelly and minibeasts.

Thursday 1 August

We will start today with one of our favourite sensory activities – Ooblek mixed with coloured ice cubes in a tuff tray. It is a wonderful sensory overload for young children. The national rugby programme ‘Rugby Tots’ will visit today with a programme packed with fun activities that will develop your child’s social and physical skills in a positive environment. On top of all this, we have some traditional games today including Hook-a-Duck, and we will put our creativity to the test with sand painting and junk modelling.

Friday 2 August

To bring the week to a close, we will have a dress up music party, with lots of dancing and physical movement. Children will try their hand at the Ball in a Bucket challenge and they will spin the candy wheel to win a prize. We will have a special beach themed tuff tray for their sensory activity and we will do some puff painting ice cream cones.

Each day, children can take part in a variety of sport and physical activities like basketball, football, skipping, bouldering and bench ball, as well as enjoy a variety of free-time activities including board games, colouring in, Lego competitions, group games, and a wide selection of arts and crafts materials to choose from.
