CreativeHare was born out of a passion to empower children to take more control of their story writing, something they naturally want to do. By giving children the confidence to enjoy writing they can explore their own story voice. Aside from enthusiasm, silence when writing, something that is often overlooked is essential for children to reflect, problem-solve and imagine. Setting the right emotional climate for writing is crucial for children to overcome their fear of putting pen to paper.

The October Holiday Writing Course for Years 5-6 is the perfect blend of structured teaching and opportunities for children to play with their imagination!

TARKA recognises the importance of exercise in a child’s development. We want to make children fall in love with exercise to lay the foundations for a positive and active future. This October half-term, we are running holiday classes in both our Notting Hill and Knightsbridge locations. This year, we have our classic 2-hour and 4-hour holiday classes for 3-7-year-olds, but we also have a RECRUITS class every morning (9am-9:45am) for children aged 18-36 months. Each class starts with free-play, which is a great opportunity for your child to socialise and make some friends. Next, we have an educational game, which incorporates dexterity, problem-solving, teamwork and many other key skills into the class. You can rest assured that a TARKA class will maximise your child’s development while growing coordination, concentration and communication skills.
