Southlands Junior Club

A whale of a time with Jonah

THERE is a change of plan for the Southlands Junior Club after the half-term break.

 

We were going to look at some stories from the Book of Acts but as Methodism’s Bible Month theme is Jonah, there has been a bit of a rethink.

 

So we've been working hard to put together a programme under the general title of Jonah which will give us six weeks of material starting with On The Run on June 8.

 

We hope children of junior school age will have a whale of a time with Jonah as evenings will include activities, games, and drama reflecting the theme and on fine nights it is also planned to arrange for a water game or two.

 

The Megamakers theme used in the first half of the summer term, for which we adapted a Scripture Union holiday club programme seemed to go down well with the kids although a problem with the video clips forced us to use several different methods of presenting the story each evening, including a home-made volcano linking in with a story about God’s power.

 

 

The Junior Club meets from 6.15pm to 8.00pm on Friday evenings during term-time and is for youngsters in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 at school. The subscription is £1 per evening.

 

Plans are in hand for a Junior Club outing to Scarborough on Saturday, June 23, taking the kids by train to the resort and offering a choice of activities, including a mystery trail, so we can cope with any weather conditions on the day.
