Saturday Club Make Some Sweet Treats!

13th October 2018 – Cooking & Nintendo Wii

 

A group on the Saturday club worked in the kitchen today, started out by washing hands and talking about the general health and safety when being in the kitchen. Some of the children had a great concept of what the health and safety initials, SB said washing hands is very important before touching the food to get rid of germs and NS said we have to use aprons. When beginning the cooking we prepared the cake mix into the bowl and all took turns to grease the pans with butter, adding the eggs to the mix and water. One by one each stirred the mixture to make it nice and smooth to add it into cake tin. When this was done they poured the mixture into 3 tins and then placed in oven with support from the staff. cooking 2

After the cooking the group tidied up the kitchen, wiping benches etc and then decided they wanted to get their lunch. After they finished their lunch, the group went into the sensory room to play on the Nintendo Wii to have some healthy competition playing the games; Bowling, Tennis & Boxing. One of the children said that they thoroughly enjoyed this activity because they do not have a Nintendo Wii at home and they love playing on different technology.

After this had finished it was time for the children to go home and be dropped off by staff or be picked up by their parents.

Saturday Club

 

Took a group to the Sunderland MFA Bowling. We played on game of bowls and did this as a healthy competition basis. The group consisted of 6 children from various ages and backgrounds, all children felt socially included when they were in the community and being engulfed in conversation with each other. One of the children said ‘I am over the moon I won Chris, because he’s the manager and I thought I couldn’t beat him but I did, I am very impressed with my score because it was very high – It was a 142 and I only beat him by 1 point’

When the activity had finished the group went for a drive over the New Spire Bridge in Sunderland as the children had never seen this before. When talking in a group on the way home the children said they would like to do this activity again and they enjoyed being in the group they were in as they liked being out with their friends and felt comfortable being around them. Arrived back at Luke’s Lane so the children could have their dinner and relax – Then went in to the sports hall to finish of the day by playing football.

We try to branch out to do new activities weather this be for the Saturday Club or throughout the week with our adults who attend Holder House C.I.C and we branch out to the community by our Facebook page.
