Holiday Clubs

In February each year we run a Holiday Club for children of primary school age. Each club takes a different theme which is always linked in with Bible stories.

At this year's half term Holiday Club we're looking at "IT'S CREATION - God put me in here".

Wednesday 

We went through the vines into the jungle and met our presenters Grant and Bec.  Today we learnt about creation when God made light, the universe and the earth. We also met the celebrity David from the Bible. There was lots of fun including a big jigsaw game, puzzles, trials and aerobics.  We are winning points for our teams and putting them on out points trees.  We also made the garden of Eden in a box and started our creation circles.

Thursday 

It was our second day and we had to wake up Bec who had been sleeping in the jungle.  Today we learnt about creation when God created animals - we watched a video of funny animals too. We also acted out the story of another Bible  celebrity called Moses.  As well as all the usual fun we did some trials where we had to pick out stars from boxes filled with some yucky stuff whilst blindfolded. In our craft time we made some amazing animal crafts and spent some more time on our creation circles.

Friday 

Today we found out about when God created animals and mankind. We learnt about our celebrity couple Adam & Eve and acted out the story of creation in our teams. In our craft sessions we made creation pictures and then made animals out of clay. We also finished off our creation circles and showed them to the other teams. We were voting all week for one person to be gunged and Grant was chosen. It's been a great week and we look forward to Sunday's Holiday Club Service at 10.30am.

The Holiday Club for February 2014 was based on the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.

Wednesday 

Mrs Macready has gone away and we met Polly the cleaner. Although she was told not, she went into the spare room where she met Peter. He told us how he goes through a wardrobe to Narnia where he is a king with his brother and sisters. We found about when Edmund and Lucy were in Narnia and met the White Witch. We played a game running around Narnia, made snow globes and lanterns in the craft sessions and sung some songs including our Narnia theme song.

Thursday 

Polly and Peter were telling us about telling the truth and how important it was. We heard the story about when the children met the Beavers but Edmund sneaked off to meet the White Witch. However he missed out as they then met Father Christmas who gave them presents. In our craft time we made Christmas coasters, worked more on our Cair Paravel castles and made Narnia statues out of clay. In our game we made a massive banner, some songs including our Narnia theme song.

Friday 

Today Peter told us about Aslan the lion who came and rescued Edmund and defeated the White Witch. We heard how he sacrificed himself so that Edmund could be set free and escape the punishment of the Witch. One of our leaders Chris chose to get gunged in place of the two who should have had it. We played a runaround Narnia game, passing a fluffy cushion and great fun doing aerobics. We made some lion masks and finished off our big Cair Paravel castle models.

The theme for the Holiday Club in 2013 was Adventure Cruise.

 

Wednesday

 

Today we met Stu and Sue who are sailing the big ship while the captain is away. Sue taught us some new songs including the Theme Song. The Deputy Mayor of Bath came to say hello and tell us about some of the crew who are from the Czech Republic. We also met the Watt family helped save the captain from the pirates and were given a free cruise, but grandma got captured. Today we looked at the 'C' of choice and how we make good choices and some of us chose put our hands in green gunge. We made a fish game, played some fun games and met Bert and Lenny - two funny puppets.

Thursday

 

It was our second day of the Adventure Cruise and we were looking at the 'C' of Call. We saw the Watt family who discovered there were pirates on board their ship who captured grandma and wont let her go unless they get the captains briefcase. Our story was about when the disciples called out to Jesus in the boat and they helped him. In our craft sessions everyone made a colourful octopus and we worked our building our boats. We also made lots of fishy pictures to stick on the nets on the boat.

Friday

 

On our third day our Adventure Cruise we were on the 'C' of Change. We had great fun when we gunged the naughty band of pirates. We sang lots of songs and even one in the Czech language. Our story was about Zacchaeus who was changed when he met Jesus. We finished off our boats and showed them to the other teams. Sailor Stu totted up the points and the Mayflower won in the Infants and the Cutty Sark for the Juniors. The Watt family tried to save grandma but the pirates made off with the captain’s briefcase.

Sunday

 

At our special family service we were on the 'C' of Challenge. We sang some songs, made faces out of paper plates and watched a video of the week. We also found out what happened to the Watt family when Grandma was captured by pirates. Rick said Grandma had passed him a note when the pirates took the briefcase - the note told them the pirates would be at the evening ball so the captain hired security guards (dressed as women) to catch them. It worked and they got the briefcase and Grandma back.

Our Holiday Club in February 2012 was Olly's Olympic Holiday Club.  Here's what happened...

 

Wednesday

 

Today we met Olly and his assistant Pixie - we call them Olly 'n' Pix. Pixie taught us some new songs including the Theme Song about being fit enough. We also met the Watt family who found out that Granny Watt was going to be their new sports coach. We played games with coach Dave and made our own Olympic torches. We also discoved some new friends Bert and Lucy - two funny puppets. What a fun day it was too.

Thursday

 

We started with our theme song and now everybody knows the actions. Pixie was on a treadmill telling us how she likes to stay fit even when others tell her to give up. We warmed up with Coach Dave and played some running games. We found out that Granny Watt won lots of sports trophies but her best moment was when she came last because she helped someone else. We watched a mini movie of David and Goliath - David didn't give up when he faced a big task.

Friday

 

The team managers had a race today but the Infant's team cheated.  We learnt that it's not good to cheat but we should be good sports. The Watt family found that Mabel the Terrible had stolen their boots so it was going to be hard in the schools competition. For our craft session we drew around our hands and made banners. We also finished off our Olympic stadia before they were judged by Olly and Pixie.
