6th August 2014
At Magic Breakfast we love the idea of Playday which is held on the first Wednesday of August each year - that’s today!
Breakfast Clubs are the perfect opportunity for play (both structured and unstructured). We have seen improvements in children's confidence and positive social relationships as a result of being given time to play. Our partner schools often provide a range of activities which promote exercise and activity as well as opportunities for children across multiple year groups to play together.
"Our breakfast club is designed to be a relaxing and informal environment where children can feel at home. There is direct access to outdoor space so children can be indoors or outdoors as they please. Children can choose from a wide range of games from chess to table football and a library of books for all ages." Ambler Primary School, Islington.
"Children love construction games and also play with toys with their friends as they don’t have time in the busy school agenda." Pat O'Connor, Breakfast Club Coordinator at St. James Primary School, Southwark.
"The most beneficial part of the breakfast club is the social aspect of children engaging with each other through having breakfast together, helping each other with their homework and of course doing sports related activities." Marc Nurse, Health Mentor,Lawdale Primary School, Tower Hamlets.
"We try to vary games and play in the club. We try to link with the big events taking place in the school - harvest, world book day, healthy eating week etc. This has proved very successful for us." Gloria Tofi, Breakfast Club Leader, Grafton Primary School, Islington.
We hope that all our breakfast club children, wherever they are, are having a wonderful time playing today.
