Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers wouldn’t have stood a chance in Studley last week as youngsters at the Bright Kids nursery learned all about space and science at an exciting holiday club.
The young fans of Star Wars had the chance to dress up and role play as their favourite characters from the films, and take part in Star Wars-based activities. With lightsabers at the ready they made their own solar system out of papier mache and UFOs out of paper plates. They even got busy in the kitchen making star-shaped biscuits, which they were able to take home for their families to enjoy.
Holiday club organiser Katie Tolley said the club was still carrying on today, as some of the children were still on holiday, due to teacher training days. She said: “The club has gone really well and we have had some great feedback from the children and parents.
One of the highlights of the week was our visit to the MAD Museum in Stratford where there was lots for the children to do – plenty of buttons to press and levers to pull. They loved the magnetic marble wall, where children created their own big marble run on a magnetic wall and were thrilled to see the marbles pour down it.
Katie added: “They loved the fact that the theme of the week was based around Star Wars as a lot of them were fans. They enjoyed the Star Wars day, which saw them dressing up and role playing, but also talking about their favourite characters and acting out their favourite scenes from the films.
Those who wanted to use their creative skills were able to make a variety of space-related items, and they enjoyed making astronauts out of different shaped paper. We are still working on the solar system and it looks fantastic – the children have all been very creative and everyone has had an interesting and exciting break.”
