NOS’s guide on being kind is an essential read for all parents and children using the internet. It suggests disassociating yourself from pack mentality, learning self-empathy and how to offer help online.

The government is asking people who have a medical condition that makes them extremely vulnerable to coronavirus to register for help during the current situation. For example, you’ll be able to ask for help getting deliveries of essential supplies like food.
If you’re not sure whether your medical condition makes you extremely vulnerable, register anyway.You can register yourself, or on behalf of someone else.
We would urge all people who feel they may fall into the category of extremely vulnerable to register on the government site.

No Christmas season is complete without Harry Potter these days – always nice to add a touch of magic to the festivities.
So last week Lea, Sarah & staff took a trip to Harry Potter World and became wizard students for the day ! Lea and Sarah enjoyed learning about how special effects in the film were made, looking at outfits and makeup and masks from the characters that were in the films.
We took a walk through the forbidden forest, Harry Potter’s home and much more! Of course we had to try the famous hat to see which wizard team we would best suit. Lea enjoyed recreating the scene of running his suitcase and belongings into a wall near the famous Hogwarts Express whilst Sarah enjoyed looking at all the different potions you could make! Lea enjoyed a great sensory session, feeling different types of snow.
Of course we had to enjoy the famous butter beer drink and treat ourselves to a wand of any character !
A fantastic day out and really got us in the mood for a Magical Christmas
Last week some of our staff took Lea and Sarah on a terrific trip to Cadbury World in Birmingham.
Lea and Sarah really enjoyed looking around the factory and finding out how Cadbury’s Chocolate is made and became famous.
They also discovered how much the packaging has changed over the years.
It was a terrific day, with plenty to do – a tour of the factory, a 4D cinema and a ride where we wrote our names in chocolate.
Needless to say we just had to purchase some treats to take home…..well quite a lot of treats actually….and all that on top of a free shot of liquid chocolate….YUMMY!
Well we certainly saw some things this Halloween in Ilkeston. Not the least of which was the sight of everyone who attended our fantastic Halloween party. The children all had a great time with the face painting, and we think you will agree there are some pretty spooky characters on show.
We think all the residents and staff look amazing in their Halloween outfits and what a lot of time and effort everyone went to to make sure the party was a spooktacular success!
We had a great Fireworks night here in Ilkeston.
We decided to support the Cricket Club fireworks display and were treated to a beautiful show.
Lots of cracking, whizzing and popping…not to mention some pretty loud bangs. A cold night but we were kept warm by the lovely hot burgers we decided to munch on.
Cracking evening all round!
