Lambrook has been a hive of activity over the summer break. Our teachers transformed Lambrook’s grounds into a fabulous Summer Activities’ Camp, welcoming pupils back for a brilliant summer of sports, art, DT, performing arts and dance courses.

Colourful crafts, marvellous felt monsters, bug hotels and tie-dye projects were packed into a 3 day Design and Technology workshop using the design programmes, machines, tools and sewing machines in the DT studio.

Pupils who had signed up for the Arts and Crafts weeks were excited to be able to delve into different pattern making techniques firstly making their very own, on trend tie-dye T-shirts as well as making beautiful ‘Zentangle’ patterns (black and white) on keepsake boxes.

Sports included a practical netball workshop where new skills could be developed through some fun techniques run by our resident netball experts, Mrs Sue Hawkes and Ms Sam Smith, “The year 5 and 6s had great fun using a hula hoop and a ball with the aim to pass the ball through the hoop and catch the hoop and the ball simultaneously. Whilst the year 3 and 4s had to balance the ball on their chests and move around keeping the chain complete! As a junior netballer it’s important to remember that practise makes perfect…”

The popular Multi Sports programme included a range of pulse-raising activities and allowed the children to learn new skills as well as take part in their favourite sports and match-play including cricket, football, touch rugby, swimming, team building, orienteering, rounders and fun team games.

Our Performing Arts and Dance weeks made full use of the fantastic performance spaces and dance studio in the DJC with music and movement filling each corner.
