Fitz Kids Holiday Club

 

Fitz Kids is a holiday club for the children of Fitzwaryn School and the surrounding area. 

It provides fun, stimulating, child-initiated activities within a safe, friendly and inclusive environment.

We follow the values and ethos of Fitzwaryn School and encourage and demonstrate these qualities at all times.

Children can relax and spend time with other children on activities such as; art, cooking, playing games, construction, sports, music and soft play.

At times, we will arrange for other professionals to come in and deliver activity days/ work shops or even go out for day trips.

Fitz Kids are contracted by Oxfordshire County Council to provide 20 days holiday club provision each year.

Summer 2022
 

Wow, what a summer!

It was a joy to be able to get back to the trips and activity workshops which the children enjoy so much and to raise our attendee numbers back up to (& beyond) pre-pandemic levels. Due to this, across the 10 days of holiday provision we supported young people, from 48 families, to access 156 sessions of play.

Favourite on-site activities were definitely the Inflatables play day and the visit from Chloe’s Mobile Farm. Other onsite activities were; construction and den building day, sensory play day, games day and the epic finale of water play day, where the staff got just as wet as the children.

Lower group had another successful trip to Swings and Smiles sensory play centre in Thatcham, if you haven’t yet visited take a look it is a fabulous facility. Whilst there the children loved playing outside in the accessible play area, in the sensory room; on the indoor swing & in the ball pit and exploring all the different toys and resources in the activities room.

Upper group had a trip to Gravitee Golf in Oxford, where they expertly navigated the course which had some tricky obstacles.

During the second week, they also had a trip to Hill End Nr. Oxford where we took part in the Trail Challenge. The young people showed amazing listening skills, teamwork, and cooperation. They also enjoyed the role reversal of helping the adults out on the more challenging tasks. At the end of the trail we were rewarded with a yummy picnic together.

As you can see, it was a fun filled, action packed 10 days- a huge thank you must go out to all the staff who made this possible, taking on my ambitious, and sometimes slightly bonkers, plans with a smile, great sense of fun and not to mention dedication and professionalism in supporting the young people. They truly are an amazing team, so thank you & well done!!!

As we start the next school year, plans are already afoot for more exciting activities. Keep your eyes on Parent Mail for future flyers and booking forms, which come out towards the beginning of each term, to get signed up…
