HAF holiday clubs with A-life / Feedback

This summer A-life visited holiday clubs in Leeds, Herts, Berkshire, Dagenham funded by the HAF programme. Please contact us if you would like us to visit your holiday club:

The HAF programme is an amazing scheme to help children during the school holidays to:

  • eat healthily over the school holidays
  • be active during the school holidays
  • take part in engaging and enriching activities which support the development of resilience, character and wellbeing along with their wider educational attainment
  • be safe and not to be socially isolated
  • have a greater knowledge of health and nutrition
  • be more engaged with school and other local services

MNR Coaching (Calcot Junior School)

Hi Peter,

Thanks for coming in this morning – it was a great hit for all of the groups and love the variety of resources available. I have some quotes from our different groups:

Ronnie (Multi-Activity Attendee) “It was fun as I got to understand more about healthy meals and the correct portion sizes to give us the most energy.”

Daniel (Football Camp) “It was cool to find out new things that promote healthy lifestyle and learn about good foods.”

Jay (Team Leader at MNR Coaching) “A very engaging and enjoyable workshop for myself and the children to learn important facts about what is good for the body.”

MNR Coaching (Lambourn Primary School)

“Amazing, kids were always engaged, All were having fun. Pete was really good with all the kids. Children would want this back again. The learning sessions were well varied with some easy and some more challenging activities and the kids were always engaged and learning new things in a positive physical way.”

MNR Coaching (The Winchcombe School)

“Engaging activities, children enjoyed the different style of learning. Engaging, allows pupils to make decisions on activities they would like to do. Activities are differentiated and are tailored for pupils to interact.”

Onsite Holiday Club (Whitelands Primary School)

“Excellent session, all the children were engaged and enjoyed all the activities. Adaptable for all ages. Pete was very knowledgeable about all elements of the session. We will recommend A-life and hopefully he will return to the school in the future. Children said ‘it was very fun and there was lots of activities. I particularly enjoyed the boxing and exercise bands.’ “

Onsite Holiday Club (Francis Baily Primary School)

“Very engaging for all ages – Excellent knowledge from session leader – Good selection of varied activities – Fun way to learn important lifeskills – Children were learning through playing the games. – Good round up chat at the end to see what the children have learnt. We cannot fault the session 10/10 it’s been amazing from Francis Baily Holiday Club. Children’s comments: Hettie enjoyed different activities to learn for our lives. Evie & Charlie – I liked wearing the sleep goggles and was amazed how much sugar there is in cola!!”

Funtastic Kids (Springfield Primary School)

“Absolutely Brilliant. Differentiated by age which was really useful, lots of engaging activities that made learning about healthy eating, hands-on and fun! Children couldn’t wait to join in and made a really fun addition to their day. Support and communication was amazing, would 100% love to have back again.”
