Children in Need

On Friday 16th November the staff and students at Young People’s Academy raised money for Children in Need. Students were sponsored to participate in a variety of activities including; decorating their own Pudsey the Bear with a variety of different colours, materials and accessories! Guessing the chocolate which was melted and hidden in the baby pudding! Guessing the amount of apples in the bowl and how many sweets in the jar! And finally playing an inspired Children in Need version of ‘Chubby Bunny’! which involved students fitting as many marshmallows in their mouth and shouting “Children in Need” after putting each one in!

Archie said “the Children in Need version of ‘Chubby Bunny’ was my favourite game – I can’t believe I got beat by a teacher though!”

Staff generously donated to the sweep stake and the YPA community raised £60. Big thank you to everyone that participated!

YPA has a good understanding and built a rapport with my son. He has been happy and well cared for to the point where he has met his full potential and thrived. The right balance and structure has provided for my son’s complex needs. Thank you for your continuous support.  Parent
