Around the World in 28 Days

 

Around the World in 28 Days

We had an amazing time at our summer playscheme.

Over the course of our 4 week scheme we welcomed 93 children, who spent their time creating, inventing and exploring in a play space filled with a diverse range of activities and play opportunities. Our theme this year was 'four continents of the world'.

Our fantastic  Play team devised an exciting programme incorporating the culture, arts, music and traditions of 13 countries with activities ranging from making Inca masks, shaman beads, African clay masks, Nbele huts, Kimono dolls, and Salvador Dali clocks, to cooking delicious traditional foods such as Peruvian stewed chicken, Ghanaian red red with plantain, Spanish frittata, and Saudi Arabian sambousek.

Children had lots of fun and excitement visiting Chessington, Flip Out, 360 indoor Adventure, Kidszania, Drusillas Park and celebrating National Play Day, which was held at Corams Fields.

We ended our scheme with many outstanding performances in our Talent Show and, although it poured with rain, our customary celebration BBQ. The BBQ was supported by Bank of America volunteers, who helped  with music, dancing, face painting, tattoos, limbo and both the staff and the children's favourite game... Dangling Doughnuts!
