What if we told you that every school holiday a brave band of Nimble Adventurers gather together to save the universe from the clutches of Queen Icelinda and her evil band of gruggles? Would you want to join us? Because if you're 4-11 and love solving puzzles, learning new skills, working virtually with others, inventing things, keeping mission-fit and saving the planet then Professor Nimblino NEEDS YOU! You can visit Nimble Adventurers HQ to learn all about Professor Nimblino, the Time Squad, Queen Icelinda Coldsnap and the ongoing battle to protect time and space. This page will tell parents and carers a bit more about what our Virtual Holiday Club is and how they can get set up to take part.

There are two ways you can take part in a Virtual Holiday Club LIVE and ANYTIME.
The LIVE version takes place every school holiday 10am - 4pm and includes access to live zoom workshops and interaction with other Advententurers and characters via the Class Dojo app (all of which is visible and monitored in the parent app. Once you book your spot using the form in the red box above a Class Dojo account is set up for you and your children from which they'll be able to access the code for the daily adventure page, upload their filmed, written or photo responses to the tasks set by Professor Nimblino each morning and receive live updates on the mission from the Nimblino Universe characters. Although certain things are timetabled, our days can be approached FLEXIBLY allowing children to complete what they want when they want and they don't have to upload anything if they don't want to. While the adventure is live, you'll have access to every day's adventure by going back through Class Story and finding the links so even if you miss a day you can keep up with the narrative. We've found KS2 children are able to work independently once set up with the app or desktop version of Class Dojo as long as they are confident readers (younger KS2 children may need more help). And for the first time this Summer we're running a Explorers course alongside for Ks1 4-6 year olds. This will require parent supervision to set up but the tasks and zooms will be aimed at this age group and instructions will be audio/video based.
The ANYTIME version of each holiday adventure is available once the Live version is finished and can be bought as an online resource pack to be completed any time from the SHOP Children can still upload their work to the Professor which will be featured in our VIRTUAL HOLIDAY CLUB GALLERY. Prices vary based on the length of the club - see Shop for details. Payment for the Anytime packs is by Stripe Card Payment only.
