Summer Activities

We had a week of activities to end the summer holidays, indoor and outdoor fun to suit all weathers!

We kicked off with a Book Building Workshop, where children of all different ages learned how to make and illustrate their own books. Parents helped too!

Day 1: Book Building

Day 3: ‘Play in a Day’ Music Workshop

This one was very exciting! Maria and Matthew from the Music Workshop Company came to teach us about music from all over the world. They brought lots of different instruments for us to try out, and helped our children put together an play about their journey around the world. All in half a day!

And their brilliant performance:

Day 3: Rock Up

Our second visit to Rock Up at Broadway Plaza – A nice, simple and fun rock climbing experience. The automatic belay system means they can climb independently and there’s a nice variation of difficulties on the walls. Parents and children test their skills and bravery…

 

 

We run activities for families in most school holidays. Your children DO NOT have to attend ST Vincent’s school, we are open to all. If you would like to be sent information about upcoming activities, please contact us here.

Summer Camping!

We kicked off the summer with a four day camping trip in the beautiful Worcestershire. We took fourteen families with us, fifty seven people in total and had an absolutely lovely few days. We even got lucky with the weather. (Well, mostly!)

First things first, everybody working together to get the tents up.

With only the occasional mishap…

Capture the Flag: Parents Vs Children.
We have some extremely competitive parents! By my count, the children still won every game, but I’m told my refereeing was biased!

It was fantastic to see everyone doing their bit, all of our families working together – and playing together! – and the trip would not have been possible if not for their willingness to do so. Thank you to everyone who came along, we hope for as lovely a trip next year!
