This Easter, our young people at Wings Notts had lots to keep them occupied. There was a trip out to Shrewsbury Prison, a visit to The Deep in Hull, go-carting, and trips to a horse sanctuary and farm. At the school, there was a pizza making night, several BBQs to take advantage of the sunshine, a volleyball competition and, on Easter Day, there was an egg hunt. Each of the houses also competed in the Wings Notts Easter Bake Off.
Each house created a cake and a presentation for their cake. All young people that got involved received a prize. The top 3 houses received some chocolate and a game for their house. The effort put in by the young people was amazing, everyone worked hard to make the best cake. All of the houses had the same ingredients to make their cakes. The young people had to decide what they were going to make and then produce it, with the support of staff when necessary. The cakes were delicious and looked amazing. It was a hard job for the judges, but eventually, the winner was decided.
All young people got involved in a game of volleyball and enjoyed a BBQ together. This is a great way for staff and young people to come together. Everyone at Wings Nott is very competitive, so it was a close game ending 20-21!
A group of young people went to The Deep in Hull where they got to learn about different animals and even got to hold some! There was also the opportunity to paddle in the sea and have fish and chips!
There was a day out exploring nature at Hope Valley. Because the weather was so good, they had a good time in the outdoor swimming pool. Swimming was followed up by a ramble around the national forest.
