Literary Summer of Fun

Literary Summer of Fun

Event Date:

26 July 2021

Event Time:

10:30 am

Event Location:

Vauxhall City Farm

It’s time for our Summer Club! And, this year, we’ll be incorporating some of our favourite, farm-themed books for inspiration. Designed for 7 – 12 year olds, our club is FREE and will provide not only the basics of working on our farm, but also Literacy support across a range of well-known titles.


The club will run on weekdays from 10:30am – 2pm, beginning on the 26th July and ending on the 6th August.

It will allow children to get involved in many aspects of the farm and take part in some activities based around classic, animal-related books. It’s a real opportunity for those taking part to increase their knowledge of animals, nature and the environment whilst developing their literacy, personal, social and practical skills.

Activities will include:

  • Re-telling some stories, such as the Three Little Pigs, from the misunderstood perspective of the Wolf.
  • Flexing artistic muscles by creating messages in spiderwebs, just like in Charlotte’s Web.
  • Channeling our inner Orwell in Animal Farm, by writing a farm charter for humans AND animals.
  • Exploring the behaviour of our wilder inhabitants, through the lens of Toad of Toad Hall, from Wind in the Willows, as well as the famous Very Hungry Caterpillar.
  • And loads more!

As well as all of this, there’ll also be plenty of food prep, mucking-out and bedding-down to be done.

The Literary Summer of Fun is led by farm staff and volunteers who are experienced in working with children of all ages to help them achieve their potential and do more.

Sessions last 3.5 hours and are free to any children who qualify for Free School Meals. You can book as many or few dates as you wish (subject to availability)

Our Easter Club is for 7-12 year olds only, and runs 10.30am – 2:00pm

Food will be provided.

Some of the sessions may involve physical activity around the farm and may be messy so please ensure appropriate clothing is worn.


If your child or anyone your child has been in close contact with in the 7 days prior to the booked session is showing symptoms of Coronavirus, please do not attend the session.

If you wish to discuss whether the Literary Summer of Fun is suitable for your child, particularly if they have additional support needs, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.

THERE ARE NO SESSIONS AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME. PLEASE KEEP AN EYE ON OUR TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS (@VAUXHALLFARM) FOR ANY CANCELLATIONS OR NEW SESSIONS BEING ANNOUNCED.
