Bliss Club

(Monday afternoon) A playful and nurturing afternoon where children can release energy, explore traditional yoga postures and breathing exercises, learn simple partner poses, engage in fun interactive yoga games and mindful activities, as well as relaxing and connecting mind, body and spirit. Each class incorporates movement, music, storytelling, breath-work, postures, guided meditation and relaxation. The children will also have time for simple art and craft, or cooking activities related to yogic themes such as peace, respect, gratitude, honesty and love. This class is led by Miss Daisy, who is a qualified yoga instructor. Yoga mats are provided. No experience necessary. Please note Bliss Club will be replaced by Forest School club in April  

Dance and Drama Club

(Thursday afternoon) Our Dance and Drama club is a fun and lively class for boys and girls to develop self-confidence, body-control and teamwork. Children learn how to use their imagination and creativity to express different feelings, move in manifold ways, perform in front of an audience and bring stories to life. Each session incorporates movement with music, dance routines and improvisations, as well as singing, storytelling, role-playing and lots of games, using costumes, puppets, instruments, art and craft, masks and props. Every three weeks we explore a new theme linked to a story. Highlights from last term include going on a seaside pirate adventure and treasure hunt with Peter Pan, dressing up and showing our good table manners at Sleeping Beauty’s wedding, telling each other lies or truth (and learning how to move like Pinocchio), flying with Aladdin on the magic carpet to imaginary places, and making wishes for ourselves and the world. At the end of each session we ‘rest our minds’ in a short meditation. Dance and Drama club is taught by Miss Daisy and Miss Camilla.
