Exciting and adventurous after-school clubs for Nursery & KS1 children
Children are natural STEAM learners – investigating the world around them, solving problems, making discoveries and developing theories about how things work. OKIDO after-school clubs offer a fun learning environment to satisfy these curious minds.
We understand that it is important to ignite interest in the world and how it works from a young age. Our sessions instill in children the curiosity to ask questions and to dig deeper into their understanding of the world.
Each OKIDO after-school session focuses on a different theme – perhaps ‘Space’ one week, then ‘Colour’, or ‘Breathing’, ‘Shadows’ or ‘Weather’.
Sessions start by screening an episode of the BBC’s ‘Messy goes to OKIDO’, introducing the topic. Then the activities begin, in which fun crafts are used to explore and grasp the scientific topic.
The children learn about different scientific roles each week too, finding out what it means to be a lab technician, physicist, doctor or astronaut. They also leave each session with something they have created, to take home and show to proud parents.
There’s more! A Crest Award star can be earned for each hour spent at an OKIDO after-school club. That means that after one term of our sessions, each child will be eligible for a Crest Award.
For prices, more information or to discuss your school’s requirements, just register your interest and we will get in touch quickly.
I recently ran a workshop for 3-5 year olds using ‘squishy circuits’ - teaching them the basic concepts of circuitry using play-doh. For such young children this visual introduction allowed us to get into the activity without a lot of preamble, and provided an excellent hook for later reflection and discussion.
Okido is an excellent club for young children. The lessons are well planned, super organised and contain content that is extremely age appropriate for the pupils. Okido are excellent facilitators... and have the kids engaged and excited throughout the lesson. I highly recommend this club to anyone with young children.
