A Very Spooky Halloween!

Wow! What a fun October Half Term we have had! Have a read about what we got up to….

Holiday Club

Based at our HQ in Morton Road we provided a daily selection of fun onsite activities. We made firework pictures and had fun playing with the ethos of loose part play at the core of our planning. We also made use of our sensory outdoor space in the autumn sunshine. Thank you Ann Emmerson-Smith for your ongoing training and support on how to enhance our practice in our space. Favourite games included Giggle Wiggle the Caterpillar (to enhance fine motor skills), knocking down our Giant Jenga blocks (teamwork) and our selection of musical instruments (explorative learning). Our Young People also enjoyed playing with our Autumn and Halloween Sensory Boxes made and developed by our Senior Support Worker Tammy.


Our NEW Teenage Sub group ‘ActiviTeen’ enjoyed a full timetable of activities at TOPCATS run by our support workers. This included decorating TOPCATS with lots of spooky homemade decorations, pumpkin carving, making chocolate apples, making sweet pizzas, walks and a Halloween Trick or Treat treasure hunt organised by support worker Alex. They also worked very hard at preparing the Halloween party buffet by making homemade sausage rolls and different flavoured pizzas with support of Alex and Carolyn. Then they joined in with the end of term disco and enjoyed an outside Jamming session in our sensory outdoor space.


Our CHOICES ON TOUR (previously known as Adult Sub Group!) led by Carolyn enjoyed a fun programme offsite and at TOPCATS. This included once again making use of our supportive partnerships 🙂 We made lasagne at Boston Lodge, enjoyed a swimming trip, had fun dancing at the Venue, loved the cinema trip to see TROLLS and they enjoyed dancing at the end of week disco. They helped to select the shopping ready for our teens to prepare the buffet! What great team work!

What a busy week!

Don’t forget we are opening on the 21st and 22nd of December subject to interest. If you would like to make use of this then get your booking forms returned to Ella at ella@topcats.org.uk by the 18th November!!! Be quick as spaces are filling up fast!
