Sparkles After School Club

We would like to welcome all children to Sparkles. We have been very busy and creative since we have come back.  We now have a nice relaxing reading corner for us all to enjoy a story after snack time.

We have missed Mrs Maddocks and her lovely food.



St Michael's offers their own After School Club called Sparkles which costs £5.00 per child and runs from Monday-Friday 3.30 - 5.45pm and also we have introduced an hours session for £3.00.

Follow us on Twitter @sparklesstmichaels



Staff in charge of running Sparkles are Mrs Maddocks, Miss Whittaker and Miss Dooley

Every evening we offer the children a warm and varied hot snack with a juice of their choice.  We encourage the children to get involved in our cookery sessions, making chocolate cornflake cakes, iced biscuits and even helping prepare their own snack.  One is pitta pizza which the children really enjoy and another is making their own wraps.

St Michael's Sparkles After School Club provides a range of activities in a comfortable and safe environment.  Arts and crafts, games and sport, story-telling and outdoor play are just some of the activities offered.  Activities vary each day and each week to meet the children's social, physical, intellectual, cognitive and emotional needs.

Having fun with different activities

Over the last few weeks we have done lots of different and fun activities.  we have used our hands and Mrs Maddocks has let us use hers to paint some pictures.  We got nice and messy planting some bulbs in some old car tyres that we painted, hoping for some beautiful spring blooms.

Having fun in the sun

We have been very busy in sparkles creating our own little garden, we have planted 2 baby trees' that will hopefully grown into beautiful large trees in years to come. We have also planted some seeds that we have been taking care of, we also found a Ladybird.
