Feedback from our Winter Wonderland Siblings Day 

On Saturday 9th December 2017 a group of over 20 sisters and brothers of our fantastic pupils gathered together at Urmston Scouts Hut for a fun-filled day of festive games and activities. A great day was had by all and our amazing young carers had the opportunity to take part in activities such as t-shirt designing, cooking smores, biscuit decorating, lego challenges and even archery and air rifle shooting! The busy day concluded with carol singing around a camp fire…and just in time for the snow to begin to fall! 

Importantly, our group also had time to make new friends and chat with other young people who had similar home experiences to them. After all, having a sibling with a special need or disability is a wonderful but unique experience – so getting to know others in a similar position can be a real help! 


Feedback from those who took part in the day includes: 


“I learned how to be safe with an air rifle and how to make smores”. 

“I’d like to take part in a day like this again”. 

“My favourite activity was archery”. 

“I made new friends today and I’d like to come again”. 

“I’ve had fun and made new friends”. 

“I met more people like me”. 

“When will we do something like this again?” 


Feedback from parents and carers includes: 


“My daughter hasn’t stopped talking about the fun she had on the Siblings Day”. 

“My son is so proud of the new skills he’s learned”. 

“They had a great time, thank you”. 


At The Birches we want to say a huge well done and THANK YOU to all siblings and we appreciate the crucial role you play in the development and happiness of your brothers and sisters here at school. 

The next Siblings Day will also be in partnership with Urmston Scouts and is due to take place Summer term 2018 – be sure to look out for fliers in your child’s school bag!
