Summer 2017 activities

Our 2017 summer holiday sessions are aimed at school-aged children and will be running Monday-Friday from Monday 24th July until Friday 1st September. We will be closed on Monday 28th August for the bank holiday.

Our theme for play sessions during the summer holidays is Around the World – Families and Cultures. As part of this we will be making culture boxes and focusing on the following:
Week 1 Great Britain
Week 2 Eastern European
Week 3 France
Week 4 Asia

Week 6 All countries

Some of the regular activities we have planned include fabric painting to make bunting, cooking in the kitchen, den building, cooking dampers on an outdoor fire, icing biscuits, water play and making finger puppets.  Our adventure playground and city farm will also be open daily.
