Summer school rocks
SPORT and art activities, along with fun with science, maths and literacy will be part of a new five-day summer holiday programme aimed at getting year six and seven schoolchildren ready for life at Backwell School.
Explore Week is available at no cost to people who receive free school meals and at a subsidised rate for anyone else.
Kayaking, sailing, football, archery and fencing are among the energetic options on offer, with other classes including shadow puppetry and perfect pottery.
Other summer school courses available at the Station Road site, from July 23-27, include photography, comic art, rock school, pottery, cookery, sugarcraft, Bristol City football, drama, water sports and outdoor adventure activities.
The school is also running a three-day bike training course aimed at eight to 11-year-olds, called Life Cycle, which teaches road safety.
