Book NowMonday 18th – Thursday 21st:
Roll back winter and try out some Aussie Summer cricket and Sport with our dedicated Aussie Coach Elliot! Super fun playground games with lots of equipment 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.

During the mornings Emma (Drama) will be exploring the magical adventure of the Snow Queen and the boy with the shard of ice in his heart, and Shakespeare’s magnificent Tempest. In music we are finding some great lyrics and staging with Lisa including Stormzy’s Blinded by your grace and music from Polar Express.

The final festive Friday 22nd, we are having a morning walk to the park followed by some (cold) cooking and having a party to round off the year! We will be dressing up and making decorations. The older children will be learning how to DJ. Alternative afternoon activities are making dens, lego, art and crafts, reading books and so on.

There’s no such thing as bad weather if you’re wearing the right clothes! Junior Forest school and Senior Forest school programmes will run as usual throughout the 4 seasons – Winter is a great time for Forest school (normally drier than Summer)! So join us for Camp fires, hot chocolate and rosy cheeks, carving wood, whittling sticks, and plenty of space back at Holiday Academy if indeed it does start snowing!
