Half Term Fun!

Hi everyone! Welcome to Shaping Futures super fun, socially flexible and safe half term extravaganza. This week will be split into themes and whilst we are hoping to help with skills for university, we’re also keen just to help with some skills (cooking) as well as potentially hobbies. Getting older and moving into Higher Education, apprenticeships or jobs means that at some point you’ll find yourself independent and really in need of a recipe for peanut butter noodles.

But the future doesn’t need to be 2-3-4-5 years’ time. You may well just be bored at home and wondering what to busy yourself with. Here, we provide at least several hours of potential activities for you to browse, peruse or virtually stroll along. There are no worksheets, no expectations just a little something for everyone to enjoy!

Monday – Music with George, learn to play along with Marty the guitarist or search the web for inspiration on that instrument you’ve been meaning to pick up.
Tuesday – Art with Sarah (of Um Bop fame). Discover a paradise of virtual galleries, painting with professionals and exploring some creativity in a time of captivity.
Wednesday – Join Faye for some group activities, fun with friends or perhaps the family. Something for all age groups and a cinema in your own home!
Thursday- Shannen guides us through how to help in your community, virtually and in real human form (no robocops).
Friday – Rupert shares some online hints and tips for getting started on a culinary journey – whether you’ve cooked before or you’re just jumping on the train now, hopefully you’ll find something useful in his Gordon Ramsay impressions where he continually berates the camera for hours at a time whilst staring at a raw and bloodied ham hock covered in garlic salt.

Enjoy the week, take part and share some of your experiences with us on Instagram or other available social media. Our entire team will be sharing videos and pictures through the week showing them tackling the challenges of boredom in the modern age, without being solely reliant on Netflix. Let us know how you get on, first to challenge Kevin to a TikTok dance off gets a free pen.
