AFTER SCHOOL CLUB REPORT - SUMMER TERM 2019. Find out what we've been up to this term

Summer Term 2019 (April-July) has been lots of fun, this is what we've been up to:

Welcome Week Games  This is aget to know the instructors and fellow club members in a creative and structured games session.  Fresh air, exercise and a chance to free those young minds! Many of our activities encourage teamwork and this term Hula Hoop face off was a mix between rock paper scissors & hula hoop hopping. A fun, challenging and also a bit daft! Making it perfect to learn & create teamwork. Along with plenty of classic Outdoors Project games to keep everyone entertained. 

Adventure Team Challenges  Encouraging teamwork we played “The Grid” & “Space Invader Dodgeball”. The Grid is a memory-based puzzle game where players must figure out the safe route across the map with help from their team. One wrong step and the water blaster is deployed! Space invader dodgeball is high energy and great fun!

Bushcraft –Solar Fire Lighting  Exploring different survival skills developed across humankind. We discussed and experimented with power of the sun to see if we could create an ember using the tools and tinder provided. Magnifying glasses, parabolic mirrors and the “clingfilm and water trick” were all good fun to explore on a sunny day.   

Nerf – Capture the Flag & Search & Destroy  Work as a team to complete the mission – destroy the other teams base before they get to yours – pick your roles and off we go! Nerf is high energy and a lot of fun for either enthusiasts or those who want to give it a go. We adapt the games to suit the age and dynamic of the group.  (Nerf at participating schools only, for NON NERF school Activities see below).
