Day 1 – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Day
We had a lovely day watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and trying out all of Charlie’s adventures ourselves!
We hunted for the Golden Tickets, visited the Chocolate Room and the Inventing Room…
We tried fizzy lifting drinks and lickable wallpaper…
We had a dejuicing race, hunted for the Golden Egg and even transported inside a TV…
And finally a chocolate egg hunt. By which time I think we had eaten our very own lifetime supply of chocolate!
Day 2 – Singing and Percussion Workshop
Songs from around the world, all kinds of percussion and my personal favourite – boom whackers!
Day 3 – Stay and Play
Day 4 – Conkers
Conkers is an indoor and outdoor adventure centre in Derbyshire. The weather was cold and grey but we didn’t let that stop us!
Parents and children both got very brave on the high ropes course, including one reception child!
And of course we had our adults only trip to Wicked at the Hippodrome theatre in Birmingham. No pictures are allowed inside the theatre, but a fantastic evening was had by our group of thirty Reach Out Participants.
If you like the sound of our holiday activities, get in touch. We run activities for all ages every holiday. You do not have to have a child at St Vincent’s to take part, just talk to us HERE or come in a say hello!
In some of our school holidays, we like to travel outside of the city, like last half term when we visited the Forest of Dean, or summer at Sutton Park, or Malvern. In other holidays, we like to remember that there are a lot of brilliant things to see and do right here in Birmingham. We think Cadbury World is one of those!
With the exciting tour of the history of chocolate, starting in the Aztec Empire. John Cadbury and his sons explaining their journey to their giant chocolate factory – particularly when the room shakes to show us what happens to the cocao beans!
Then there’s the chocolate mixing demonstration, the Cadabra Ride, the 4D cinema and the giant playground! The free chocolate went down quite well too…
Thank you everybody for a lovely day out. If you enjoyed that trip and want to put your name down for the next trip in the Easter holidays, or you didn’t go and think you would like to join the next one. Contact us HERE.
