To get The Old School Adventure Club ready for our visitors, we will be cooking up a selection of delicious alien and space food fit for our visitors. To make them feel comfortable in our environment we will be creating paper mache planets, moon-sand, and space slime. We will also be learning about the different planets in our solar system.

Creating our designs on paper first, then bringing them to life on our t-shirts or any clothing you desire (Clothing will be required to bring in). In the afternoon we making jewellery and brooches to go with the item of clothing designed, ready for our cat show.
  • Save the day! Thursday 3rd June Come ready to travel space and time! Imagine being an astronaut and travelling into space. While we look for shooting stars at the national space station we can find the answer to questions such as 'how long does the moon take to travel around the world?' There will be an opportunity to experience space food and activities you might be doing in a rocket up in space and even launching rockets of our own.
  • World Environment Day Friday 4th June As World Environment Day is on the 5th of June 2021, we will be learning more about the importance of looking after the world around us. We will be looking at the recycling process and why it is important to recycle. Using recyclable materials we will be junk modelling with them and turning them into objects that we can use. As a group we will also be going around our local environment, ensuring it is clean and tidy.
