The summer holidays have already begun for some in our Yorkshire team. Alison (Placement Support Worker) has enjoyed two fun filled days out with some of the children – with many more planned.
One of the days was a visit to Lotherton. We visited the Deer park first and observed a group of calves. We were in one of the observing areas and had a discussion about having to be really quiet. One of the children waved and shouted out loud “Hello deer we are over here”, then stated “They are all looking at us” – One of those brilliantly, comical moments!
When the sun was at its hottest, we were inside the dressing up room trying on all the costumes that people used to wear. Lots of fun was had as we tried on lots of different outfits!
The second day of outings was a visit to the Railway Museum in York. We tried some trainspotting, but found it was much more interesting climbing aboard and exploring the trains.
One young person spent time looking for the polar express train. They was informed by one of the workers that not many people are able to find that train!!!
Giving up on the polar express train, we experienced riding a Mallard train by going into a simulator. The mini train ride was fun, and of course enjoying an ice cream in the sun at the end was lovely too!
The foster carers, children and young people have some wonderful days planned for the summer holidays along with some of the Swiis days out.
Fun for everyone!!!
