Year 11 Health and Social Care students had a fabulous experience and saw all their hard work come to a festive conclusion!

For many months, the students have been planning a host of Christmas themed activities suitable for children aged two to four years old. The aim was to invite children from a local nursery in to school and engage them in the activities they had created.

This week the activities took place and were a huge success! There were so many activities to inspire the children, they loved icing the biscuits, decorating Christmas trees made from paper plates, putting faces on wooden spoons and decorating Christmas stockings. Needless to say, there was a lot of glitter and glue involved.

Not only did the little ones have a fabulous time but the students also had a wonderful morning, it was a great experience for them all.

Remee Boynton and Freya Girgan both said: “We really enjoyed doing the activity with the children. They were all so involved and willing to have a go. It has reinforced our career choice of wanting to work with children in the future”.

Many of the students have decided to stay on into the sixth form to continue studying health and social care, as it provides many career opportunities in nursing, teaching, social work and other health related occupations like paramedic and occupational therapy.
