What is holiday club?
Beeston Free have been running a holiday club for primary school children for over 20 years. This involves four mornings of activities for children, including Bible stories, games, singing, crafts, puppets, and quizzes.
This year we will have be having a sports themed week building on the recent Olympics so there will be plenty of activities and fun to be had. Each day our Bible time will focus on a story from Luke’s gospel looking at why Jesus is the greatest “champion”.
Who is holiday club for?
Holiday Club is for all primary school aged children: whether they normally attend church or a church group or not. Children need to be at least 5 and no older than 11 years old on 31st August 2021). If your child requires extra support or assistance we will do our very best to accommodate this: please do get in touch beforehand if you feel that it would be helpful to discuss this.
When does holiday club run?
This year holiday club is running from Tuesday 17th to Friday 20th August, between the 9:45 and 11:45am. Children will get the most out of holiday club if they are able to attend all four days, but we understand this won’t always be possible. Please indicate on the booking form which days you child(ren) will be attending as this will enable us to accommodate as many children as possible.
What steps are being taken to deal with the current COVID-19 situation?
We always plan to run holiday club in a way that is both safe and enjoyable for the children. This year we have limited the number of children and leaders in the building and are running for a shorter time. We aim to do more activities in small groups so the children mix less with other groups. We will continue to encourage good hygiene practice and put in appropriate measures (for example: this year we will ask all parents to drop off and collect their child(ren) outside of the building.
How do I register?
You can register online here before Sunday 15th August. We have space for 72 children each day and are operating a “first come, first served” policy in the event of large numbers (we had over 100 children a day previously). Holiday Club is run by DBS checked volunteers from the church and there is no charge for any of the activities.
