KKids Activities Term 1 2019
The ultimate skill development program. Children have the opportunity to partake in different activities and sports each week. The program focuses on locomotor & manipulative skills, & gross motor skills. Sports might include basketball, soccer, cricket & footy.
Each Tuesday morning Killara Kids offers a 45-minute class with Wyllie Martial Arts. The classes are a great way for children to start out their day as it helps create focus and heighten concentration. The classes also help build confidence and self-esteem as children are encouraged to challenge themselves and step outside their comfort zone.
A fun and interactive class where children are able to express their creativity through a range of different mediums. Children will work on various projects throughout the term using different materials such as acrylics, watercolors, pastels, mixed media and MORE!
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND is the Killara Kids Drama Club! The classes include a mix of drama, music and movement with a strong focus on improvisational games. The classes teach self-expression, public speaking, lateral thinking and cooperation.
Another KK favourite returns. Science Club runs weekly workshops where children engage in hypothesizing, testing experiments, exploring ad communicating results. In the past we have created catapults, rockets, made sherbet and even dissected an octopus.
Children have the opportunity to play traditional African percussion using Djembe drums, a range of bass drums and lots of shakers for everyone. Starting with some cultural and musical history, we then get to know the instruments and how to play them with correct technique.
This. Term we are welcoming back an old KK favourite, Chess Club! Children have the opportunity to learn the basics of chess, strategies and problem-solving skills. As the term progresses the lessons move onto more complex ideas such as opening tactics, planning & calculation.
This program was voted in by the children! We are excited to be welcoming back Got Game who will be providing us with a NSW Accredited Teacher for the kids to learn Gymnastics. Got Game take an innovative and modern approach to traditional Gymnastics. This program is accessible to children of all ages and skills.
