Soup group was packed full of fun last night! We started by adding some colour to the trees with decorated recycled bicycle wheels, demonstrating the children’s creativity.
We then played an educational game with Alex which involved searching for objects and testing whether they would sink or swim with some interesting discoveries made!
After all that fun we headed onto the pitch for some playmaker activities where some of the kids got a step closer to earning their award with games involving coordination, balance, teamwork and good communication. Amy then taught us a cool rhyme that she learned at her recent 9 day course on volunteering and youth work in Gloucester where she spent the time learning with 30 other people from all over Europe. The rhyme was called Gouley Gouley and had some actions that tested our memories and the next game (the colour challenge) tested our flexibility where the leader instructed the kids to stand in a circle and place different hands and feet on different colours on people’s clothing, creating what can only be described as a human tangle.
The session then ended with soup on the campfire with thanks to Alison Nobel and some yummy snacks from Erin’s mum and we were joined by a little frog who wanted to take part in the campfire games.
Really nice to see some new faces this week too! See you all next week
