Our North team visit Apple Jack's Adventure Farm!

16th September, 2019

Over the summer, our support workers from the Heywood office took six children to Apple Jack’s Adventure Farm near Warrington, Cheshire, which is a fantastic, fun family day out. The children's activities available are mainly aimed at 4-12-year-olds, although there's lots of fun to be found for the whole family. The children who attended the trip were aged 7-11. Some of the children already knew each other and two of the children were new to the group and were very welcome. The children were very excited about the day out and all came prepared with their lunch and dressed for the weather as sadly it was raining! We reminded the children about staying with adults for the day and informing us at all times of their whereabouts. When we arrived, we were greeted by a staff member who gave us a map and explained the route around the Farm and told us when and where the events were on, which was great! The children bonded and made friends very quickly and they stayed together and helped each other on the big apparatus. They tried all the activities including Jacks Ball Blast, Zip Wires, Roller skating, the Maize Maze, massive Jumping Pillows, Quad Karts, Farm Fun Hose, Haunted House, Archery and even the indoor inflatable Play Area. At 12.30 pm, after we had our picnic we went to watch the Children’s Entertainment Show. The children got up dancing and enjoyed joining in with the party games. They all got very muddy and wet but the rainy weather did not dampen anyone’s enjoyment or fun! The children benefitted from improving their social skills, they gained emotional confidence, used their imagination and creativity and worked well as a team together and they even learnt new skills such as roller skating and archery. It was fantastic to see every one of them have a go at all the activities and join in together. They laughed and smiled throughout the whole day!
