Buckingham Palace

We were very lucky to secure some tickets and take a group of our children on a trip to Buckingham Palace on Thursday.
There was great excitement on the journey up to London, despite the 7.15am start! We took in all the sights en route and finally arrived at Palace dead on time thanks to Mrs Prichard. We bypassed the queues and were directed to the learning centre where we were met by Emma, who was leading our landscape drawing workshop on the lawn in the gardens of the palace. After going through security we were led to the rear of the palace and taken down to the gardens where our workshop was set up beside one of the lakes. The children felt very privileged as we were the only group allowed onto the lawn, our view was the rear of the palace which was quite a spectacle. Emma settled the children into their task quickly....draw what you can see was her instruction! She applied different techniques to help them with their sketching, Mrs Amos and Mrs Evett-Collins were so impressed with some of the results.
After the workshop our group was taken to the family area where we had lunch in one of the rooms allocated to schools. There were lots of interactive boards the children could learn from as well as an opportunity to dress up. There was time for a quick photo shoot with some familiar royal faces and then it was time for our tour of the state rooms.

Blue Flag Holiday Club

At the Blue Flag Holiday Club the children have the opportunity to interact with children of all different ages, thereby strengthening their social confidence. We provide a child-led environment where the children can choose what they would like to do from the large variety of activities we offer. The children are supervised at all times by full qualified staff.

We encourage children to try something new but appreciate that not every activity suits every child.  The children can enjoy group games indoors and out, arts and craft sessions, trips to the local park and cinema, Xbox and PlayStation time and so much more. We ask that every child brings a healthy, nut-free packed lunch and a refillable water bottle. We have plenty of breaks throughout the day where we provide squash, water, fruit and biscuits.
