In after-school we have snack that is served between 4.00 and 4.30pm. This is just a snack to tide the children over until they are collected and can have tea at home.
Our menu is created weekly by the children full of their favourite things and can include - hot dogs, chicken burger, crackers, toast, noodles, chips, fish finger butties, breadsticks and dips, wraps, nachos - the list is endless!
We have water available for the children to access all night and a jug of milk in fridge that they only have to ask for, and we also offer milkshakes.
Fruit is also available for the children to access freely.
All our planning is done termly by the children. We have a termly plan that is available every single night for the children to write ideas on. We actively encourage the children to write anything and everything on there!
Our staff also think of things they know the children would like to do or make and this also goes on the planning.
We do lots of crafting, painting, baking and colouring.
We have access to the outdoor playgrounds, football pitches and the field.
We also have lots of board games, for example Pie Face, Guess Who, BattleShips, Monopoly, Ker-Plunk.
We have face paint, nail polish and make-up, dressing up, lego, a pool and air hockey table.
We have a games room with an Xbox and various age appropriate games.
We have a quiet area where the children can go to read a book, do their homework or just chill out.
We do a reward scheme where for any fantastic behaviour the children get a Wow Moment certificate. This is displayed on our Wonder Wall and the children also get a copy. We also have a Star of the Week and they receive a certificate and a prize from the prize box.
We do many competitions which we display on our wonder wall alongside any wonderful things the children have created.
We also have a notice board which has details of the cost of after school, what we have been doing in each room each night and our stars of the week displayed there.
I hope you enjoy looking through what we have been getting up to!
After School staff.
