WIS Kids (out of school club)

WIS Kids is the out of school club for children attending Woodthorpe Infant School. Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide places for children not attending our school. WIS Kids’ members of staff are employed directly by the school, enabling the club to follow the same policies as those used by the school during the school day. This allows for greater consistency and continuity for the children when transitioning between WIS Kids and school at the start or end of the day.

 

Before school sessions run from 7.30am - start of the school day and after school sessions run from the end of the school day - 5.45pm. Further details, including costs and booking information, can be found in the WIS Kids information booklet below.

 

All general queries about WIS Kids, including bookings or payments, should be directed to the school office at office@arnoldwoodthorpe.notts.sch.uk or 0115 9263820.

What we have been up to

Week beginning 26.7.21

Wow, what an incredible time we have had last week and these past few days! We had such a fun time on Wednesday at our bouncy castle party (even though it was very hot). We had lots of yummy party food and then children had a party bag to take home with them. I hope all the children had a great time, I know me, Trina and Josh did.  

 

At WIS Kids the have children enjoyed making: 

  • Maleficent headbands 
  • Pikachu headbands  
  • Rapunzel towers 
  • Pizzas  
  • Pancakes  
  • Decorated Biscuits  
  • Making playdough 
  • Robots and creatures with our new construction bench  
  • Pretend marshmallows and s’mores on our wooden fire (and playing camping) 
  • The mountain for the display board in the hall 

 

A big well done to the children who won the sticker chart! You’re super stars! It has been an absolute pleasure looking after the children as WIS Kids this year and I can’t wait to see them all in September already.  

Week beginning 19.7.21

We have had a Harry Potter theme this week at WIS Kids. We have made magic wands out of sticks that we collected from the playground, and we added plasticine and crystals to them. We had fun making up our own spells and shared some of the spells we knew from Harry Potter. 

 

The children have designed dragon eggs, made Harry Potter bookmarks and even a little sock for Dobby. 

On Monday, the children had great fun decorating Harry Potter biscuits which looked amazing. We also had Harry potter themed snack on Wednesday which was lots of fun!

We have had a dinosaur theme this week at WIS Kids. We have made dinosaur masks, dinosaur skeleton pictures, dino hunter head bands and we have also been on a dinosaur hunt around the playground to find the Mummy dinosaur's lost babies. 

 

The children in bubble one have enjoyed playing with the potion shop this week. 

Week beginning 28.6.21

This week at WIS Kids the children in bubble two have loved playing with our new potion shop which includes colourful potion bottles, glitter, fresh lavender, glitter and gemstones. The children have been making love potions, strength potions, invisibility potions, poison and much more. I have lost count how many times I have been turned into a frog this week! Bubble one will have the potion shop in their bubble next week. 

 

Some of the children chose to draw pictures of their potions, write what they had put inside them and what their potions did.

 

On Tuesday we had a fun filled football afternoon. We enjoyed eating hot dogs and crisps at snack time (also with fruit and veg) and we watched some of the England game together which the children enjoyed. The children also coloured in pictures and made England flags which looked amazing!  

 

A picture has been included of one of the snack trays that we have had this week to give an idea of what is on offer at snack time.

Week beginning 21.6.21

These past few weeks have been a bit of a mix of activities with a lot of what we have been doing being child-initiated. Here are some of the things we have been getting up to:

 

  • Busy playing with our new playdough ice cream shop which the children have enjoyed making their own flavours and decorating their ice creams (they really do look good enough to eat). 
  • Adding more to our rainbow display board by making flowers, clouds, and hand prints, which are going to be used for the sunshine. 
  • Enjoying the lovely weather by cheer leading, playing football, relaxing in the playground with an ice lolly, and even taking some blankets outside to lay on in the shade. 
  • Playing with the mud kitchen and enjoying making potions and soups with leaves, flowers, twigs and of course, mud. This has led to the idea of making a magic potion shop which the children are excited about and it should be ready to play with by next week.

Week beginning 24.5.21

We have had so much fun at WIS Kids these past two weeks. We have played with playdough and wriggly worms (spaghetti), have decorated biscuits and cupcakes, and got even more new toys! 

 

We have made a start on our new display in the hall which is going to have a beautiful tissue paper rainbow on it which the children have made. One of the children would like to call it the WIS Kids friendship rainbow as we made it together with all our friends. I can’t believe how fast we have made our rainbow and we are so close to finishing it so thank you all for your help - you have done a great job!

 

This week, the prizes for the sticker chart have been awarded. Well done to Finaly, Raife, Evan, Alex, Jessica and Louis P. You are so good at tidying up and are always so helpful!

Week beginning 10.5.21

The past two weeks at WIS Kids we have had a variety of crafts and activities which the children have really enjoyed taking part in. We have been playing with the aqua beads and the children are amazing at copying the designs out of a book or making their own crazy patterns, without any help! 

 

We have also been making pasta necklaces, paper plate spaceships, funny face aliens and push and pull moon phases pictures.

Week beginning 26.4.21

This week at WIS Kids we have enjoyed playing in our new tepee and making our own magical potions in the playground. 

Week beginning 19.4.21

As it was Earth Day on Thursday, we decided that we wanted to plant some seeds. We planted basil, parsley, cress and sweet pea flowers. The children really enjoyed gardening in the sunshine and getting a bit messy! We have kept a few plants behind at WIS Kids and we can't wait until we can start to see them grow. We have also been talking about recycling and how plants grow.

 

The children have enjoyed dressing up this week in our new fancy dress costumes.

Week beginning 29.3.21

This week at WIS Kids we have been getting ready for Easter and enjoying the sunshine. We have had ice lollies in the sun and had lots of fun blowing bubbles. A big well done to the children who won the sticker chart; I hope you like your prizes!

 

Have a great Easter everyone!

Week beginning 22.3.21

This week at WIS Kids we have been making our own Easter baskets. Inside we put a little chick and a chocolate egg. The children enjoyed colouring and making their baskets and were pleased about having a little chocolate egg to put with their chick once they had finished.
