Pioneer welcome youngsters to 'Stay and Play'...

Mums, Dads and family members were invited in to a new club recently at the Tilbury Pioneer Academy. The club, ‘Stay and Play’, is aimed at those children that are not quite old enough for the Academy’s nursery, but are old enough to want to play and mingle!

The new sessions started with a full room of anxious children (and their families) as they adjusted to the new idea of coming to school just to play and mix with new friends and try new experiences. The children were encouraged to make their own fruit kebabs, play in the wendy house, make some magical shapes with the play dough, enjoy the great outdoors with bikes, cars and sand modelling or just settle down and read a book.

Class leader, Mrs Rachel Owen, welcomed the children in with a friendly smile and a special story time, ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’. The classes run every Tuesday and Thursday at 1.15pm-2.45pm and all are welcome!
