We wouldn’t have missed this year summer camp at our Helen Doron School. Last year it was a wonderful experience for E., this year she’s been waiting for it with great excitement.
Day 1 – Rex Animal Farm
The more tiring programmes were at the beginning of the week as the kids had more energy. After a short getting to know each other and an English session they headed to Rex Animal farm.
The whole group at the gate of the farm (as you can see they all got a HD hat):
Lots and lots of animals
Some playground time:
The best thing ever happened at the end of the day on the way home:
E.. – Mommy!
M.: – Yes.
E.: – Do you know what happened today?
M.: – What, Sweetie?
E.: – I made a new friend.
It took me quite a while to find out her name and who she was, but ever since the first day they were hanging out together.
Day 2 – Tarzan Park
E. had been waiting for this day a lot. She loves this fun park and she had been there before but had never tried the water playground area. Well, we packed her swimming suit and sunscreen in her backpack. But they started the day with the English session
Water playground – the weather was kind to them (I decided to delete all the pics with kids in swimmingcostumes)
Of course, they had fun on the other playground areas too:
E. did sleep well after the fun-packed day.
Day 3 – Crafts and playground (water bombs, slime)
This day was all about slime, fingerpaint, waterbombs, and fun at the playground apart from the usual English lesson in the morning.
Day 4 – Crafts and ice-chalk
Just like the other days the kids enjoyed themselves mostly in the fresh air. Though they prepared a UFO in the morning (or in the afternoon… I don’t remember. I really need to write the posts when they actually happen.)
I’m not sure if it was this day’s craft or one of the previous days’ but here is the result of some finger painting:
English lesson – preparation for the performance
And playground time where the ice-painting took place with some home-made ice-chalk.
Conversation between E and Zs (the teacher):
Teacher: – Did you like the ice chalk?
Teacher: – How was it?
E: – COLD.
Picnic in the park:
Day 5 – Performance for the parents
Again I’m uncertain whether the kids got their tattoos on the very last day or on another day but here’s E’s Sunny, the Cat. It lasted for almost 3 weeks much to her delight.
And of course the final performance, where the kids showed to their parents what they’d learnt throughout the week (though I’m positive this performance was just a tiny piece of what they’d learnt). They were singing, dancing, creeping like a snail 🙂 and it was evident that they all enjoyed it very very much.
I might add a video soon, so come back and check it out.
