Little Group -
The have been den making in the hall with Middle group, using the plastic scaffolding poles to work together and create a home that could fit the whole group in. There were 2 teams, both shelters were good, although one didn't have a roof.
They have also played games of Captains Coming in the hall, Hungry Hippos using lots of balls, a trip to the park in the rare time it wasn't raining, and also made an obstacle course. In the end room, they have been playing whiteboard games like treasure Island and Hangman, but also a game Clare made up called Silly Faces, where you have to roll a die and build a face. Each number corresponds to a facial feature and once you've built one to completion you've won!
Joe did some tattoos for all groups throughout the week, and joined in Little group for their colouring sessions with Geometric Animal sheets. Little group have also been baking some chocolate cupcakes, making pizzas on wrap bases, using playdough to make different scenes, collaging and Just Dance on the PS4.
Middle Group have been playing Dodgeball in the hall, Den making with Little Group, and also managed going to the park. They have also been making masks with paint on card, using the geometric animal printouts to create beautiful patterns and colours, white board games, including Bake Off, where each person is given a task to create a cake with certain elements, and the "Master Baker" who in this session was Joe decided who's was the best cake based on the flavours and looks. Middle group also made Pizzas on wraps for their snack and have had their share of tattoos as well. In the end room, the children got to play Just Dance on the PS4 and also did a game of name that tune in the kitchen to Disney songs.
Big Group have been splitting some sessions into two as sometimes and hour can be too long for some of the sessions, so they have been really busy.
They have been playing cube games in the hall, some dodgeball, war games, stageball, monkey ball, running games, Hockey (twice) and stool ball. But they have also been creative, too with Logo Challenge, having to make a logo for a fictional company with a brief along with it. They have also enjoyed the geometric animals too with lots of creative ways of designing them. Big group made their own pizzas, and have baked a cake!
There have also been some games played, with Draw, Act, Sculpt, Beetle Drive and Mafia along with Higher or Liar, and also Rocket League on the PS4.
All this happened in sessions, but then there was free choice time with no end of games of Uno, Chess, Connect Four and Frustration, Table Tennis and Table Football, some children created some brilliant models using plastic cups and lolly sticks and some brilliant games of Heads and Volleys in the hall and some full pitch football matches after lunch. This week has been brilliant, and that's thanks to the amazing staff putting on some great activities, and the children for all getting involved and having fun.
That's it for playscheme, back to normal After School next week.
See you then!
