Holiday Activities

So February Half term is over already, it was certainly different being at St Thomas More. The children really enjoyed the different baking activities we did each day and the trip to Jungleland was fun, think everyone enjoyed themselves.

We will be back to St Josephs and St Theresa’s for the Easter Holiday club which is only a few weeks away.

The Easter holiday falls funny this year with it being from Monday 2nd until Wednesday 11th April. Thursday 12th and Friday 13th April are INSET days. Usually we don’t open for INSET days but as Chadsmead, St Thomas More and St Josephs are all on INSET days we will be opening for Holiday club at St Josephs on these 2 days. (Sorry Gentleshaw but you will be back at school)


At The Club

Each week during the holiday club we have different theme, the themes for this holiday will be Spring for the first week and mini beasts for the second week
Just a note that we go outside most days during the holiday club to get some fresh air and let the children have a bit of a run around (depending on the weather of course) please could you ensure that your children come into holiday club with coats to keep warm in cooler weather and suitable footwear so that they can run around outside. Could we also ask that sunhats and sun cream is supplied on hot days.

Thank you

On the Fridays

As always every Friday during holiday club we have a special lunch this could either be Dominoes, Chippy, McDonalds, party/buffet style lunch or KFC. 

We will let you know what we are planning for the next Friday special lunches once we have decided.

Please note there is a small additional cost for these Special lunches usually £3 per child, if it is any different you will be informed.

Hot snack style meals

Remember we are now offering a hot snack style meal in the evenings  at an additional cost of £1.50 per child, if you require your child(ren) to have a hot meal at the club then please let us know when booking either by ticking the relevant boxes on the booking forms or by letting us know if you e-mail your sessions or book through your club manager.

Trip Days

Every Wednesday is our trip day, all children attending on the Wednesday go on the trip. 

For this holiday we will be going to the cinema on the first Wednesday and Ash End Farm on the second Wednesday.



If you want to book into the holiday club either contact us or print off the booking form and send it to us. You will also need to register your child with us if they are not already registered. You will find the registration form on here as well under the ‘forms’ heading. The registration form can then either be posted back to us or you can bring it in on your child’s first day.

Please note there is a £13.00 non-refundable deposit per trip needed to book in for each of the trip days.

Mobile phones

We have had some children bring their mobile phones in during holiday club, whilst we understand that a lot of children now have phones we are afraid we cannot allow them to be used at the club because of safeguarding. Please could parents encourage their children to leave their phones at home, if however they need to bring them in, for example if they are going elsewhere after club and you need to be able to contact them, then they MUST hand them to a member of staff who will lock them in the tin, the phone will be handed back to the child at the end of their session.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation.
