Welcome to the First Campus Summer Challenge!

We have put together 4 sessions for the children this summer, one for each week of the holiday provision. The sessions have all been planned to be 1 – 1.5 hours long, and we have provided all equipment they will need for the sessions, which they will receive in a bag for each weekly session. They can take home any resources they don’t use, along with the pens and pencils provided. At the end of the 4 weeks, we will also provide a goody bag with some First Campus merchandise for them to keep.

The sessions are planned to take place weekly, and we are encouraging schools to engage with us on social media (Instagram and Twitter handles @firstcampus), tag us in your photos so we can see what you’re getting up to. Schools can win prizes linked to each session through their engagement with us on social media and sharing content showing the work that the children have produced. The session overviews and prizes available are detailed below, detailed session plans can be found in the weekly teacher packs.

Week 1 – Grow Your Own This session helps teach children to understand how things grow, and the various elements they need to make this happen. The session starts with a ‘treasure hunt’ around the school grounds to find answers to various clues on what makes plants grow. The children will then plant their own sunflowers to take home and grow in competition with a parent/carer. School Prize: The child with the tallest sunflower (parent/carer to share pictures on our social media) will win a class visit to Cardiff Met to take part in a Forest Schools session with our School of Education (all expenses paid). Individual Prize: Everyone who returns their sunflower growth charts to the school in September goes in a raffle – chance to win a £20 Amazon voucher

If you have any questions or queries about the sessions or the programme more widely please get in touch with Ellie Bevan, Young People First Campus Manager on ebevan@cardiffmet.ac.uk
