During the Easter break, many of the children who attend our Learning Hubs took part in Easter Study Support sessions. During this week they started each day with one to one tuition with our volunteer Tutor Befrienders, followed by afternoon activities with our partner Play in Newcastle.
The tutees worked with their volunteers through the week on topics they wanted to improve in. Many used the resources in sessions to prepare for their upcoming exams!
Following this session, the children took part in activities with Play in Newcastle. They had an absolute blast blowing off some steam with circle games, cooking, arts and crafts, gardening and much more.
The children made fidget spinners, Easter bonnets, chromatography flowers and musical instruments. Here are a few of them.
The British Red Cross also visited us to teach the children key life skills including first aid! This taught them how to keep themselves and others safe in real life situations.
In the cooking session, the children learnt how to safely chop up vegetables to make their soup. They prepared the soup to eat the following day to serve to volunteers and parents at our family fun day. On the final afternoon of the Easter Study Support, we invited the parents and other siblings to join in with the fun and games, and sit down all together to eat the healthy soup.
We hope everyone enjoyed our Easter Study Support this year, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the volunteers who gave up their time and shared their knowledge and skills with the young people. And finally, to congratulate the young people for dedicating themselves to their studies.
