Activities

Another amazing Splash filled with lots of different activities! There wasn't a lot of sun but this didn't stop us from having a good time. This week fell on Pancake Tuesday! So we had lots of fun mixing, frying and eating our pancakes with Miss Nikki. They were very yummy! Not only was it Pancake Day but it was also the week of the Chinese New Year, therefore we spent lots of time creating decorations and celebrating Chinese New Year with games and activities. Of course we made full use of our astro and woodland area during this time! We all had a lovely Splash!

Activities

 

We had lots of different activities on as ever this Splash, with lots of new children joining. We had some new equipment delivered and despite the weather we was determined to go outside most days and enjoy ourselves. Sometimes, the weather got the best of us but this didn't stop us having fun! We took a trip to the park with Miss Gina and played some amazing games as a whole group! We even had our own Splash's got talent which all children participated in! Who knew we had such talented children! Well done everyone!

 

Activities

Wow! What a fantastic Splash we had in this summer! Even though the weather weren't great this time we still made some amazing memories together. From spending time on the astro skipping or playing football with our play workers to having 'movie afternoons' and making cakes. The four weeks was jam packed with activities for everyone to get involved in. Can't wait to see you all next Splash! Have an amazing first term back in your new year groups! We went on trips out to the park, took the ferry to Spaceport, visited the Maritime Museum and even took a residential to Colomendy! The four weeks went very quick, hope you all had as much fun as we did.

Updates

 

First Day - We have arrived safe and sound. Our colomendy staff showed us to our rooms we're we made our beds and got unpacked ready for our tea and activities. All children and staff are very excited and cannot wait to go to their campfire after tea!

Well the campfire was amazing! all our children had roasted marshmellows from the Colomendy staff and sang some very funny songs! The children finished their night with some of Mrs. Hilton's famous hot chocolate! I think that is what is sending them to sleep! All children are fast asleep in bed, looking forward to their activities tomorrow! 

Second Day  - What an amazing day! All children woke up on time, stripped their beds and packed by themselves ready to go home! Looking forward to some more amazing activities! 

Activities

The sun was looking out for us this half term! We were able to use all of St. Sebastian's facilities including using the junior yard, infant yard, woodlands, astro and indoor areas like the arts centre and the school hall! Our arts and crafts activities including painting, designing and creating our own T-Shirts. We also had some sensory activities on the woodlands and science garden with Miss Kelsea, this included planting and creating fairy gardens. Miss Nikki planned hide and seek with our teddy in the woodlands and all children had a fantastic adventure trying to find him each turn. when the children found him, they got to hide him! We finished the week with some drama activities learning all about improvisation, well done everyone!

Activities

We spent the majority of our time on the woodlands this half term! We played lots of group games including time bomb, tag, hide and seek and many more. All children get involved and our older students help our younger students in teams. However, when the weather decided to turn we created an obstacle course in the hall for us to tackle. Each team had a member of staff on and a mixture of different age groups. All children supported each other and showed amazing team building skills! Also, we created some fabulous works of art over this half term! This varied from panting to making pictures using shaving foam! Not only did we create art but we baked some amazing cupcakes with both Miss Hannah's!  What a jam packed week! 

Activites

 

Brrrr... the cold got the better of us this splash! We spent a lot of Splash indoors partaking in some fantastic activities! Daniel, Elliot and Nathan played some brilliant games with our children including some classics like 'whats the time Mr wolf' (it never gets old!). Miss Gina and Miss Niamh showed off their dancing abilities with some of our children while joining in with some Just Dance. On her way to Splash, Miss Kelsea collected some leaves for our children to make fantastic Autumn pictures and they were absolutely amazing! The weather might have kept us in for a couple of days but it certainly didn't stop us going out on the astro to play some sports!

Activities

 

Another fantastic Splash this Summer! Four weeks of amazingly behaved children having lots of fun! Miss Gina planned lots of sports for us to get in the mood for the Olympics and Paralympics. This ranged from gymnastics, obstacle courses to see who can keep the balloons up the longest. We finished this fantastic week of activities with a disco! Our other weeks consisted of some more brilliant activities including more arts and crafts creating medals for the events we would partake in. We baked prizes for the winners and the spectators! We had a marvellous time! Well done Everyone!

Updates

First Day - all arrived safe and sound.  Children have had a fantastic picnic. They are now making their beds, which is a sight to see!  Our guide is Beccy, and she will be giving us a tour of the grounds.  After this we will be having our tea, then caving and a camp fire!  The sun is shining, lets hope it stays that way!  We will post another update tomorrow!

Second Day -  Unfortunately Friday has started with grey rainy skies which look set for the day.  But that wont stop the fun! All the children had a go at caving and most really enjoyed it.  The staff were fantastic at encouraging everyone to try.  After this, we had a campfire, with lots of stories, songs and jokes!  They all really joined in and had a fabulous time.  Problem solving and aerial ball are on the agenda.  It will be sad to see another successful splash end for the summer 2016.  

Activities

 

The sun shined on us this half term! Yay! We spent lots of time outside on the woodlands and astro playing lots of groups games including tennis and hide and seek as well as having free play to do what we would like to. We even went on a another trip to a park! We are very lucky to have such an amazing park within walking distance of St. Sebastian's. We spent the full day here and had a picnic in the park. It is amazing to see our older members helping our younger members as they always do. This stood out massively when some children decided to read in the quiet room. Our splash members are brilliant from when we go on offsite trips to rainy days in school. Looking forward to seeing you all next year!

Updates

Second Day - Morning all, our children had a fantastic day yesterday.  They thoroughly enjoyed all the activities.  They told many jokes around the campfire!  After a hot chocolate and biscuit they all slept soundly and have just enjoyed a cooked breakfast.  We are having a brilliant time.  Once again, say a prayer the rain stays away! We are off for morning activities.  Not sure we will be able to do another update because our morning is very busy.  Ring the mobile number provided when we are on our way home for an update if you require. The children have just finished there last activities - Aero ball and caving.  They had an absolute ball despite the weather!!!! We are off to have lunch now and will be leaving at 1pm.  See you all at St Sebastian's about 2pm traffic permitting. The Kingswood Instructors keep commenting on how fantastic our children are.  They just get stuck in and have coped with some awful weather at times. We think they will all sleep well tonight!
