If your child is booked into a Holiday Week, you will receive an invitation to join Class Dojo. This secure app allows us to share photos and videos of our activities, and to send and receive messages. Look out for the link!
HOLIDAY CLUB ACTIVITIES AND SCHEDULE
Falconry UK visited our October Half Term club as part of our OWLS theme, running workshops and providing amazing hands-on experiences.
At our Holiday Clubs, children are offered a fabulous schedule of indoor and outdoor activities. They can learn to rollerskate, dance, cook, create craft, have fun in the sun or simply chill out. Children can choose to take part in a very wide range of activities suitable for all ages and interests. Each week has a theme with associated activities running all week. Children can also choose to play freely with the many great toys and games available to them both inside and out. We have visiting teachers, focus activities, and a Big Weekly Event.
Times: 8.30am – 5.30pm
Drop off and pick up from the Ropery Street entrance at Bonner Primary School (Mile End site)
Drop off and pick up from Vivian Street entrance at Chisenhale.
We do not provide food: please make sure your child has a generous packed lunch, at least 2 good snacks and a labelled water bottle. We do not mind what you pack for your child but please: no nuts, including peanut butter. You may wish to include popcorn or a party snack on a Friday for our Friday Party and Film. It’s always helpful to pack a change of clothes too, especially on hot Summer days as we have a habit of organising big water games and extra messy play.
Be prepared to receive a tired but happy child at the end of the day!
Mad Science joined us at Easter 2022, with explosive presentations and hands-on Science activities for all ages. Circus Sensible formed a central part of our February Club this year – all the children learned new skills which they showed off in our End of Week Talent Show (and most of the adults too..!)
When do Holiday Clubs take place?
We run clubs at October Half Term, February Half Term, 2 weeks at Easter and for 5 weeks over the Summer. We do not run clubs over the Christmas break or in May half term.
We sell 5 day passes and ad-hoc passes (individual days). 5 Day Passes are released in the week following a Holiday Club; Ad Hoc Passes are subject to spaces remaining and are released several weeks later. Please be aware that we sell out almost immediately for 3-5 year olds; book quickly if you need the space.
A return of Falconry UK and our favourite Owl theme! See below for our overview planning for both Bonner and Chisenhale. There will be slight variations on each site.
Oh, we enjoyed planning our summer weeks this year! We have weekly bouncy castles, a Hawaiian Beach Party, donkey rides, a clown school, an incredible Dinosaur Science Dome, and much much more in store! Our overview planning is below:
For Easter 2023 we have a range of activities and exciting events planned as well as our usual themed crafts and free play. On Wednesday 5th April we will host Moji Party Entertainers, with a disco, bubble machine, snow machine and photo booth! On Wednesday 12th April Zoolab will be visiting us, and bringing some little furry (and not so furry) friends with them. We also have our dance teacher and a football coach daily.
