Junior Class – It’s Class !
We have had amazing uptake of our Junior Activities this year. This class for ages 5 to 12 takes place on Saturday mornings, between 9.30am and 10.30am with our instructor Hannah. Our Junior class is a brilliant way for our younger members to get some extra social interaction, by playing games and offering them chances to interact and create friendships. Given the age of the children that attend, the class is designed to best support them in some of the most informative years of their life.
Junior Class offers free play so that each child can enjoy themselves and be themselves, while also offering some structured play and games to give the opportunity for extra interaction. We always make a special effort to allow the children to guide the class, by creating a safe and fun environment where they are always listened to and given the chance to communicate and express themselves.
Last week the kids had great fun with their friends on our obstacle courses, playing board games, making puzzles, drawing, and playing catch with our bean bags. It’s always a highlight for the staff in Lakers who get to hear the kids laughter outside.
We are always hoping to learn and develop new ways of delivering the class, and new activities and games where the children can play and have fun, all while learning and strengthening life skills, motor skills and confidence.
We have been lucky to have many of the juniors graduate into the teens classes and it is always a real joy to see the children grow and develop!
A special mention and thank you to our incredible team of volunteers who support our instructor Hannah in the running of these sessions.
