Out of School Hours Learning (OSHL) is an excellent opportiunitity for our children to participate in a range of different learning experiences.
Summer Term 2016
In Reading Club this term we have been reading a book by one of our favourite authors- Julia Donaldson. It’s called The Paper Dolls. It’s about a little girl and her paper dolls; Ticky and Tacky and Jackie the Backie, Jim with two noses and Jo with a bow. We enjoyed listening to the story, and felt quite sad when a little boy came along and snipped up the paper dolls. However, the story had a happy ending as the paper dolls lived on in the little girls memory. We have completed two activities so far. First we used pictures from the book to sequence the story in order. We worked together as a team to remember what came next. Then we made our own paper dolls, and some of us even named them, just like the little girl in the story.
Change 4 Life Club
We kicked off Change4Life this term by becoming food detectives. We had to describe four different fruits; what they looked like; felt like and, most importantly, what they tasted like! We tried pink grapefruit, pineapple, mango and passion-fruit. Some of us thought the pineapple was “delicious” but some thought the pink grapefruit was “disgusting!”
After tasting the different fruit, we got to make some fruit kebabs. We used a selection of fruit including the new fruit we tasted and some yummy ones we already knew- like grapes, strawberries and galia melon. We enjoyed them with some Greek-style yoghurt and honey. It was a great way to have something sweet, but with a lot less sugar!
OSHL Spring Term 2016
Change 4 Life Club
In our first Change 4 Life Club of Spring Term, we played food detectives and learned about healthy sugar swaps. We tried and tested different fruit, and made some tasty fruit salads afterwards. We cut up all the fruit ourselves, making sure we were safe with knives! We had plums, grapes, bananas, clementines, kiwis and pomegranate seeds with some natural yoghurt and a drop of honey. They were delicious!
The budding scientists in Key Stage 2 were extremely keen to extend their learning so we started our Science Club. In the first session, the children got to make their own lava lamps which glowed in the dark, using Alka-Seltzer and some highlighter pens!
