  • Treasure Tuesdays (make Tuesdays in August special by finding a ‘hidden gem’ in your house, in the garden, when you go to the park with your family, etc and put it or the memory . Can you of it (photograph, drawing, actual object) in a special place

  • Learn the order, on the flag you coloured on Transition Day, of WPS’s values. As there are 7 of them, it would be fabulous if you or your family did something relating to each one of them one day of one week of the holidays!
  • This is FUN!! With as many people as you like, write a story in spoken words. Each person can only say one word, e.g. (Henry) On (Anna) a (Tom) grey (Henry) morning...It gets you thinking really, really fast and the storyline can be as funny/mysterious/realistic as you like.

We are really looking forward to seeing you in September!
