Saturdays with Lakers are full of fun and games, especially at our under 18’s activities. With three classes in the morning from 9.30am to 1pm, Saturdays are the most enjoyable kind of chaos. Juniors class, where the ages range from 5 to12 year olds, is the first session of the morning. We are greeted by an exuberant and chatty group who are full of energy and ready to run around, dance and play while also making the most of our on site sensory room. This class is full of boys who are always on hand to entertain!
Next up is our two teen groups; these guys are always excited to update staff and their friends with all the latest gossip in circle time. Each week is so amusing and varied, you never now what’s going to happen. Teen classes activities range from bingo and quizzes to art and physical games depending on the week – with Bingo definitely being a fan favourite.
All our Saturday classes focus on the social aspect of life and look to provide all the members wo attend an opportunity to have fun and interact with others of the same age. It is a safe space where they can express themselves in a warm and welcoming environment. The classes provide the members with space and freedom if needed and also offers more structured games and activities if they wish. The members who partake have the opportunity to discuss and choose which direction the class will take each morning.
We have been lucky to have many of these members with us for a number of years and it has been a real joy to watch them grow from juniors to teens and to see their personalities and relationships develop and blossom.
