  • Creepy Houseaimed at eight to 11 year olds they can learn all about spooky similes and awesome alliteration in order to create some terrifying tales!
  • Number Bonds – this workshop is aimed at five to seven year olds and teaches them about number bonds to ten and 20. This is aimed at all abilities.
  • Telling the Timethis session is for six to eight year olds aims to introduce how time is measured in everything from months and minutes, and will also cover the key concepts of time measurement as covered in the national curriculum.

Councillor Lana Orr, Cabinet Member for Skills and Employment, said: “These workshops are not only a great way to keep youngsters entertained during half term holidays, but they also improve maths and literacy skills and encourage children to use their imagination.
