Big group is very big! Ryan has been doing a fantastic job with them, often having two sessions running at once so that everyone has something to do. It does mean, though that the sports sessions are always great with so many participating.
Some of our new parents have asked about what sessions are, and the types of things we make the children do. Well, we never make the children do the sessions, but we do encourage them to join in. If they don't want to, then they can find something else to do in the room that they are in. Some of the big group children like to get a book and read, and little group are happy to get the train set out. Our main objective for kids' club is that all the children are safe and happy.
The types of sessions we do varies week to week, with Little group following the same interests as school is doing in Reception, and Middle and Big planning with the children so that everyone gets a say in what they want to do. We have a good mix of sports, games, cooking and baking, arts and crafts, with opportunities to go to the park and playground to just play and run around.
I'll try and get back into keeping this blog up to date along with photos, meanwhile, please leave a comment, or just tell Joe you've read the blog. It would be nice to know I'm not just talking to myself.
