The kids talk about walking through the jungle and looking for different animals. They are making binoculars to help them see the animals. Ordinary cardboard rolls are being made into binoculars for these little explorers.
The kids listened to a rhyme called "There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly". Lesson learnt: Do not swallow animals! Kids made spiders in the rhyme with styrofoam balls and pipe cleaners, much less scary!
There was an old lady who swallowed a fly.
"There was an old lady who swallowed a cow.
I don't know how she swallowed a cow!
She swallowed the cow to catch the goat...
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog...
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat...
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird ...
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and wiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
But I dunno why she swallowed that fly
Perhaps she'll die.
The kids learn about the long journey of classical Chinese ink painting and how simple lines giving form to branches, flowers, bamboo. They learn paintings can show what the inner heart and mind of the artist sees rather than what their eyes see in reality.
There are lots of little artists at our awesome summer camp!
Our youngest kids at The Summit loves to read books! Every day new stories and a bunch of new questions. Reading is fun!
The little ones at The Summit had a fun morning creating snakes! It was fun painting but also a little bit scary when the snake started to bite..
We had a fun day outside playing with seeds which the kids LOVED! Kids everywhere, seeds everywhere...
Summer is all about visits to the beach. Camp teacher Cici helped the kids to create their own beach. Using stencil outline painting techniques, they added sea animals they would see and things they would bring on a beach trip.
If you can't go to the beach, bring the beach to you!
During the school holidays Awesome Kid's Club provide a well rounded holiday camp. Our bilingual program (English/Chinese) is lead by a multinational teaching team from across the world which included a cross section of different activities:
- team/individual games
- art & craft
- quiet time activities
- indoor/outdoor games
- water games
The weather is hotting up and the kids love their visits the pool. Paddling, swimming, playing, using water slides - all adds to the kids water confidence and cools them during the steamy summer.
After lunch kids are encouraged to engage to choose their own quiet time activity. This is a chance to slow down the pace of the day, cool down and rest after lunch before the afternoon activities begin.
Welcome to Awesome Summer Camp Blog 2014. Here we will upload photos from activities, schedules, menues and other information along the way.
