Twilight

There is a choice of three sessions for Twilight.  Sessions starting at 3:30 pm will include a light snack. Children, who are joining us from an after school club at 4.30 pm, will be collected by a Twilight team member and walked across to the Hut.

Afternoon session (A) from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm (Small snack included) £4
Afternoon session (B) from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm (Light meal included) £5
Afternoon session (C) from 3:30 pm to 6:00 pm (Light meal included) £7

In the afternoon, the Twilight children starting at 3:30 pm meet in Library area. Early Years and Key Stage 1 children are collected from class by a member of Twilight and escorted to the library area. Once assembled in the Library, a register is taken before proceeding to the Hut. On arrival in the Hut, the children have a snack and we discuss the activities available.

Weather permitting there will be a physical activity in the Key Stage 1 playground, where an adult will involve children in games or allow the children to explore a variety of outdoor equipment.

In the main indoor area, children can be involved in any free play activity they independently choose from a selection of art and craft projects, construction apparatus, jigsaws or table games. We focus two nights on play and two on creation; this allows the children to explore opportunities and experiences they may be familiar with at home. We also have a weekly rotational film night, linked to the term’s theme and selected by the children.

A light tea is served at 5 pm. After tea, children return to the main play area to quieter tabletop activities: colouring, quizzes and reading books.

There is a creative activity every week linked to the term’s theme, allowing the children to explore their artistic side and learn new skills. This can include cooking, sewing, modelling or painting. As part of the calendar, we also observe and plan special handmade gifts for family members, giving the children an opportunity to make something for a loved one at a celebratory occasion.

We are continually reviewing our activities, and where appropriate differentiate according to age and ability, whilst ensuring we cater for a range of different interests.
