Block 8 Academy Before and After School Care Focus - Wednesday
Outdoor Playtime - Playground stops at Moody Elementary School and Rocky Point Park are part of our planned after school program. These playgrounds have great equipment and ample room for the students to run, climb, play tag, soccer or just enjoy the park! Other days will feature walks along the lower trails near Port Moody Arts Centre, or playtime at Kyle Park.
Music, Sound, Rhythm, Culture - Music is interspersed throughout the activities on this day. Children are exposed to various musical concepts and encouraged to join in, learning as they play. Through singing songs, chanting rhymes, producing their own rhythms and songs, playing music games, using xylophones and other instruments, children come to learn the principles of music as well as tuning into and gaining confidence in their own ability to create. The program includes hints of the Kodaly and Orff philosophies, and uses instruments, songs and rhymes from children's folk culture.
Crafts and Games Time - When not outdoors or involved in planned activites, children have access to craft supplies, puzzles, games, books and more.
