This Term’s Program

As well as offering homework support and physical activities to stretch the legs and break the ice, we have set activities that will change from day to day. These activities will follow a theme each school term.
Term 1’s topic is Bullying, which equips children with knowledge and skills to help them deal with bullying situations.
Term 2’s topic is Emotions, where we will explore different mindfulness techniques, yoga, and explore what is underneath some emotions.
Term 3’s topic is Being Kind, where we will do lots of activities that include helping out the community. One favoured activity in this section is our Clean up the Community Days, where kids compete against each other to clean up a community area, and win prizes for their contributions!
Term 4’s topic is Building Self Esteem. This term will focus on learning new skills, being recognised for the skills that were built over the year, using skills to complete a final activity or task, and many more activities that will get your child seeing theirselves in a positive light.
