Ark Elvin Summer Camp 2021

 

From 16th August for two weeks we hosted between 80 and 100 Year 7 – Year 10  pupils a day at our first ever Summer Camp.

 

Our activities: 

  • Every day pupils read together form the brilliant collection ‘The Book of Hopes.’ 
  • Pupils spent every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday taking part in activities in school, ranging from boxing to creative writing, cooking and mural painting. 
  • On Wednesday 18th August we too 100 pupils to London Zoo where we had a great day spotting all sorts of amazing animals. 
  • On Wednesday 25th August we went swimming at the Olympic Pool – our pupils braved the ‘Aqua Splash’ assault course, and some took to the canal in the swan pedal boats. 

  •  


    On Friday 20th August we had fun learning to write songs with the Ark Music team and on Friday 27th August we had a very special day with the Literacy Trust – pupils learned how to craft stories, make comics, write jokes and poems and be creative with language and welcomed a range of special guests. 

     

We had a great two weeks! The summer camp formed part of the national Covid-19 recovery scheme and was funded by the Department for Education.
