A summary
HEEGO has been awarded grant funding from Milton Keynes City Council to deliver sessions for the Holiday Activities and Food Programme, for children in receipt of benefit-related Free School Meals (FSM), during the holidays in 2023 leading into the winter holiday in 2024. We aim to educate the kids by teaching them practical skills, alongside traditional learning. We also intend to make learning fun, focusing some of the time on various craft activities, DIY, sports skills and exciting, energetic, trips such as visiting Ninja Warrior or going to Hollywood Bowl. We hope to equip them with a range of transferable skills. Through this, we hope to not only enhance the pupil's creative skills but also hope to implement engaging in conversations with other pupils so the students can enhance their cultural awareness and develop empathy towards others.

Learning aims
Aim 1
Enhancing Creative Skills: One learning aim from the activities described would be to develop and enhance creative skills through crafting sessions, writing skills, and drama sessions. By actively participating in crafting sessions, students can learn various artistic techniques and express their creativity. Engaging in writing activities can improve their ability to express ideas effectively through written communication. Drama sessions can help develop their imagination, improvisation skills, and confidence in public speaking.
Aim 2
Cultural Awareness and Communication: Another learning aim would be to foster cultural discussions, which can help students develop a broader understanding and appreciation for different cultures. By engaging in conversations about various cultural aspects, such as traditions, customs, and beliefs, students can enhance their cultural awareness and develop empathy towards others. These discussions can also improve their communication skills by encouraging active listening, respectful dialogue, and the ability to express their thoughts and opinions in a culturally sensitive manner.
Aim 3
Physical Fitness and Sportsmanship: Participating in sports, games, and horse riding activities can promote physical fitness and sportsmanship among the students. This learning aim emphasises the importance of engaging in regular physical activity, developing teamwork skills, and exhibiting fair play. Through sports and games, students can improve their physical coordination, endurance, and overall fitness levels. Additionally, horse riding can teach them discipline, responsibility, and the importance of forming a bond with animals. At the end of the summer, receiving a certificate for horse riding can serve as a tangible recognition of their achievement and encourage a sense of accomplishment.
