During the summer Holy Nativity runs ‘Sparks’, a series of fun days for 5-11 year olds. Last year the church was transformed as 30 children came to sing, dance, play and have fun doing arts and crafts before having lunch. For £2 each week your child can spend three mornings doing all of this and get their lunch as well!!
One of the highlights of the summer last year was clay modelling. Whilst looking at Noah building a giant Ark little fingers shaped and moulded clay to form model animals ornaments. The following week tiny brushes applied vivid colours and transformed the uniform grey shapes into animals that now take pride of place in countless homes around Mixenden and Illingworth. Who knows what fun we will be having this year!!
Children must be aged between 5 and 11 years old to take part in the days. Each of the days will be four hours from 9am until 1pm. We will also feed them lunch before they are picked up! The dates are Wednesdays mornings on August 1st, 8th, 22nd and 29th. The cost for the activity days will be £2 per child per week which can be paid on the day itself. We hope you will be committed to all five weeks as places for children are limited.
All children must be registered and consent forms filled in by a legal guardian. Please drop your child off at Holy Nativity Church at 9am on the day and pick them up again at 12:50-1pm.
