School Holiday Programmes
Cost: $55.00 per session/workshop. If you book in for three sessions happening on the same day, pay for two and get the third free.
Food: BYO or purchase from the coffee shop (Queen of Pops) next door if it is open (we will supervise children ordering). Please confirm the coffee shop opening times as they do reduce their times during the school holidays.
Materials: All materials needed for the workshops will be provided.
We welcome all customers (whether they have been to The Lime Zone before or not) and we encourage them to bring their friends along too. The more, the merrier but we will be capping the sessions at 10 to 12 students in total. If students are attending more than one session on the same day, they will be supervised in-between.
TO BOOK – Please fill out the form below making sure you SPECIFY which workshops you want your child or children to attend.
December Holidays (2018) (We are in the process of adding these now.)
Monday 17 December
8:30 am to 10:30 am – Lego play and/or Lego jewellery craft. Students can individually opt to either just spend time doing Lego construction OR they can get creative and make some cool and unique jewellery. They can take any jewellery they make home with them (maybe for Christmas presents)?
11:00 am to 1:00 pm – Paint by Numbers – Students will utilise our laptops and the website at https://pbnify.com/ to create a paint by numbers scene which they can then paint or colour using acrylics or coloured pencils. (Please make sure your child comes suitably dressed in case they get paint on their clothes!)
1:30 pm to 4:00 pm – Scratch coding. To get into the Christmas spirit, students will create a Christmas themed animation with music.
Tuesday 18 December
8:30 am to 10:30 am – Animation Creation – We will be exploring one of the free animation software platforms. More information to come.
11:00 am to 1:00 pm – Felt Christmas Decorations. Targetted at both boys and girls, we will be using a sewing needle and thread to hand sew felt ornaments for the Christmas tree. Ornaments will be decorated with old buttons (learn to sew on a button) and other bits and bobs. Students get to take home their creation/s.
1:30 pm to 4:00 pm – Scratch coding. An introduction to games. Here we look into modifying a basic Pong game before moving onto a basic maze game.
Wednesday 19 December
8:30 am to 10:30 am – iPhone (or similar) photography – This session is designed to introduce the students to some basic skills in photography to help them produce a better picture. Students will need their own iPhone or digital camera.
11:00 am to 1:00 pm – Explore Powtoon by creating a video where you teach someone something. Students get to pick whatever topic they like. It could be something like “How to tie up your shoes!”, “How to play handball.”, “How to ride a skateboard.”, “How to plait hair.”, etc.
1:30 pm to 4:00 pm – Glass Pebble Mosaic – Using a small timber backboard, students will print an inspirational word (or their name), trace it to their board, paint it in and then mosaic the word and surrounds with glass mosiac pebbles to create a home decor sign. If students don’t finish their piece in the session, they will be provided with glass pebbles to finish it at home.
January Holidays (2018)
We will be running one-on-one sessions as required during January and already have people booking for the week of 21 January. It is a great way to ease your children into school by giving them a refresher.
Michelle is looking to run some two-hour small group sessions in ‘fractions’ or ‘intro to algebra’ during the week of 21 January too. If you are interested in placing your child into one of those, fill in our contact form below and Michelle will get back to you.
Alternatively, some of our tutors are happy to work over the holiday break. The cost for them is $55 per hour at The Lime Zone or $65 per hour in home if you live within a 5 km radius of The Lime Zone (north-side).
We can always provide one-on-one tuition in numeracy or literacy during the school holidays. Just contact Michelle on 0417 916 529 to discuss.
