News from REACH
By Middlesbrough and Stockton Mind
The REACH team have some exciting projects planned for the children we work with to keep them busy over the summer holidays. For the children in years 5 and 6 there is a two week summer school running from the 3rd to the 14th of August. We are providing a range of activities in partnership with local clubs and services including Middlesbrough Football Club and My Place. Children will be taking part in sporting, musical and creative activities, including digital story-telling. They will also have the opportunity to build confidence, teamwork, responsibility and communication skills with a fully trained Forest Schools instructor who will take them outside and teach them how to make dens and light fires in a safe and sustainable way.
For our children in year 6 who are making the transition into secondary school we are putting on two transition days designed to enhance their confidence, resilience and wellbeing during this challenging time. Children transitioning to Acklam Grange and Trinity College will be taking part in a series of workshops at their future school on friendships, coping skills, emotional wellbeing and problem solving.
