This club is for the younger children – in school years Reception/year 1/Year 2 – and began in January 2006. It takes place in the hall at DCF. Numbers are limited to 20 children in order to give enough time to each child. In the September each year, when the children reach school year 3, they can join our Livewires club (for 7-11’s / school years 3-6).
The activities are structured in a way that makes them different from Livewires club, so that children moving from one club to the next will find enough of a change to be exciting and challenging. The rules are the same as for Livewires as they work!
After registration (subs are 50p) the children begin with a game until all have arrived. Activities include a mix of craft, colouring, games, talks and songs. There is a story and action songs each week which the children love, and each week a child is given the chance to say a prayer, saying thank you to God for something.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
– Proverbs 22:6
Each year the little ones have their own race in Livewires Sports day and also have a minor part in the Livewires plays/musicals.
The leaders are: Sandra Viney, Jo Gunne and Suzy Tigwell. Leaders have taken the DCF Child protection course – in association with CCPAS – and are DBS checked.
