About Live-in-Five

About.

During the programme children develop confidence as they explore many different elements of creative drama, dance & singing. We work with a script of an published play that we have performance rights for. Every holiday is different! And everybody has an important part to play. The scenes, dances and songs we work on over the course of each week are tailored to suit the ages, abilities and interests of each child.

Bring and wear.

Children will be using up a lot of energy, so it is important that they bring a named drink bottle of water, healthy snacks and a healthy lunch. We have breaks for morning tea (15 mins) lunch (30 mins) and afternoon tea (15 mins) each day. We move around a lot so please makes sure clothing is comfortable and practical. Tracksuit pants, leggings or shorts are the best things to wear.

Coming and going.

Live-in-five runs from 9am - 3pm each day. The venue will be open from 8.45 on wards. The day ends at 3pm and children must be picked up from the hall unless we have been informed otherwise. We will never leave children to wait for parents outside the hall unattended. for everyone's safety it is expected that parents come into the venue at the end of the day to collect their child.
