An Earth, wind, water and fire-themed therapeutic day with other siblings.
It’s that time of year again where we would like to invite bereaved Siblings (5+) of the children cared for by Shooting Star Children’s Hospices to a day that’s all about them. Spend the day with other siblings learning how to make a “fiery” rock song with the amazing Rock Steady company. Come back down to “earth” in the company of a variety of exciting minibeasts that will help inspire some insect artwork. Take a deep breath of “air” and enjoy a relaxation session and, of course, Siblings Day isn’t complete without a splash in the warm “water” of our Hydrotherapy Pool.
Our Siblings’ Days help children find comfort in being with other siblings who have similar experiences. All of these activities are supported by one of our Therapists at Shooting Star House.
Please bring swimmers, a towel, a water bottle and a packed lunch/last night’s dinner in a Tupperware. (NO NUTS PLEASE) Hot chocolate and s’mores will be provided to make sure we are rewarded for our hard work!
As before, evidence of a negative Lateral Flow for children 12 and above needs to be shown to reception at drop off. If anyone at home has tested positive we ask that you test all aged children. We try to encourage our young people to be independent and say goodbye in reception. Please let us know if you think your child might struggle and we can make sure a friendly face is there to greet them.
