The 2020 Holiday Club is scheduled to run from Tuesday 18th to Thursday 20th August, in the hall at St Chad’s School — not in St Chad’s — the current situation permitting. The set-up is planned for 2pm on Monday 17th August — and more adult helpers are needed. Speak to Anna Davies (07968 891927) or Maureen Hobbs (700257) if you are able to help.
Holiday club takes place during the school summer holiday. It is for children aged from 4 to 11 and lasts for three days and follows a theme.
The children learn a song that goes with the Holiday club theme for that year. The children are split into age groups and make lots of fun craft activities that are relevant to the bible stories they learn over the three days. They get to take home what they have made at the end of the three days. Each group are assigned a group leader an assistant leader and there are lots of other helpers floating around to help with the all the groups.
The children are given a workbook to work through that is based on that year’s theme which they also get to keep and take home.
The children have refreshment breaks during the day. The children bring a pack lunch and we all get to eat together, they then have time to run of some energy outside.
Some of the helper volunteers also act out drama plays for the children to watch. The children really enjoy this (Secretly I think the adults love the acting more).
