The summer holiday has started, which can only mean one thing… Activ8’s summer holiday club is up and running again! This year we have even more exciting activities and fun for our students, including workshops, crafts and competitions.
On day one, the students started the day with a jujitsu and self defence class where they went through moves on their belts, getting ready for their next gradings. After, Sensei Alex had organised a big scavenger hunt round our brand new dojo, where the children had to work out clues to get the next locations. They eventually found the grand prize, which they shared out between them! We then moved onto our craft activity, which was designing and making their own bowls! They started by designing them on a piece of paper, and then they created the shape of the bowl and any 3D patterns they wanted out of clay. This got a but messy but the final designs looked great! They will paint them later on in the week, so check out our blog post to see the final bowls!
After lunch, the instructors ran a first aid class, where the children learnt about how to put on a plaster, and how to look after someone if the collapse. They learnt very important lessons about hygiene, the importance of calling an ambulance and how to stay safe. They also learnt lots of parts of the body, which they were quizzed on, in a worksheet activity at the end of the day.
On Tuesday, we had another fun filled day! After the jujitsu and self defence the class, we had a visit off the police! The kids learnt about what the police do, and they even got to look inside the police car!
We can’t wait for the rest of the week! It’s not too late to sign your child up for the summer club. You can do it through our website at https://activ8selfdefence.co.uk/contact-2/ or visiting our Facebook, Activ8 Self Defence
