Sport with Coach Elliot will be great fun trying out the minimal contact game – tag rugby! He has also devised some great playground games for obstacle courses, bat and ball games, relay races and own choice games. Mornings and afternoons – we have far more outside-time than in a normal school day.
Art – is as much about the doing as the finished piece – sometimes experiments work and sometimes they don’t! We will be working with mixed media this holiday, using printing, tape, painting techniques (e.g. stippling with a cotton bud…) and collage and that’s just for starters. Expect an elaborate and individual Valentine’s card at the very least!
Monday 12th Feb 1.30-4pm Drone Workshop with Dronecraft Academy. 8-11 yrs £18. Lego workshops and a Game workshop running simultaneously – making a cooperative transport game, designing our own squares for a board and then playing it.
Friday 16th Feb walk to Regent’s park for sports and games and exploring activities
Afternoon activities: child-led making dens, art and crafts, sport, and a great selection of books/board games, dressing up clothes and lego.
SENIOR FOREST SCHOOL PROGRAMME 6+ years 10am-4pm
JUNIOR FOREST SCHOOL PROGRAMME 3-6 years 9.45am-3pm
FOREST SCHOOL is an inspirational alternative learning experience which takes place on a regular basis outdoors in natural settings and across all seasons – it’s about safely taking risks, team work, problem solving and making friends.
There’s no such thing as bad weather if you’re wearing the right clothes, and this is so true! Junior Forest school and Senior Forest school programmes will run as usual throughout the 4 seasons – Winter going into Spring is a great time for Forest school (normally drier than Summer)!
So join us for Camp fires, hot chocolate and rosy cheeks, mud slides, carving wood, whittling sticks, and plenty of space back at Holiday Academy if indeed it does start snowing again! (Didrikson’s waterproof dungarees and a jacket are recommended).
Different activities each holiday
How lucky are we to have Hampstead Heath and Regent’s park so close by! We go exploring the natural environment in these parks: den/shelter building, making hot chocolate in Kelly kettles, team games and making friends, nature crafts, getting muddy, and having a great adventure
Outdoor kitchen cooking, learning to make fires safely, and cooking delicious camp fire food
Waterproof, outdoor jacket, trousers and boots essential – as are long sleeves, hat or cap and sun screen in Summer.
Find out more about Forest School ethos here. Our leaders are Forest school trained, experienced, and DBS checked.
