Celebrate the great British holiday camp with a collection of cross-curricular activities – a spectacular finale to your summer term
With the credit crunch ensuring that many families will choose to holiday in the UK this year, perhaps it is time to celebrate the great British holiday. And, what better way to do this than by running your own Butlins®-style holiday camp at your school? Whether you choose to run this project over a week or just a day, involving one class or the whole school, the eclectic mix of activities and competitions for which holiday camps are known will allow lots of scope for cross-curricular links. Moreover, it could be arranged to tie in with existing events in your school’s calendar such as sports day or the summer fête. Either way, it’s certain to energise children during those last weeks of term!
