IF YOU are looking for things to keep children busy and happy this summer, North Light Gallery at Armitage Bridge might have the answer.
Next week, there will be a series of workshops for four to 12 year olds which will offer children a chance to get creative and learn a bit of Spanish at the same time.
Similar Spanish and crafts sessions proved a big hit last year.
This summer’s workshops build on that and an Olympic theme has been added.
Children will get to make an Olympic torch and medals, learn about the different national flags, about the athletes and design a 2012 London Olympics picture.
Specialist Spanish teacher Patricia Taylor and her team will again be running the workshops.
They start on Wednesday (July 25) with fun indoor sports and games in Spanish plus making those Olympic torches and medals.
On the next day its learning about the different flags and athletes from Spanish speaking countries with a chance to make a flag from a Spanish speaking country and design and make an Olympic mascot.
On the final day, July 27, the children will learn about Spanish culture and national songs and design a London 2012 picture with landmarks and famous athletes
The sessions will start with a special Olympic inspired story based on fun tales from the view of a famous athlete, the child of a competitor and a VIP member of the audience.
A wide range of creative crafts will be available for children to learn and enjoy and take home. Themes and activities for each day will be on the website soon.
The sessions run from 10 am – 12.30pm and cost £8/child, £15 for two siblings or £22 for three days/child.
