Merry Berries

Hello and welcome to Merry Berries

Merry Berries is an after school tea time club. It is open to 20 children, 4 days a week at 3.30pm until 4.30pm.

Merry Berries is part funded by Children in Need, Burnley Campus Social Enterprise and parental contribution.

We have 6 members of staff each day, each with a key group of up to 5 children. Each key group concentrates on key life skills to promote independence skills matched to the ability of the children.

The groups are as follows:

  • Cooking: children make a balanced tea for the whole group
  • Setting tables: children set the tables with cutlery, plates, cups etc for the whole group
  • Etiquette/ communication group: children concentrate on sitting at the table, using their preferred method of communication and eating in a socially acceptable manner
  • Washing up group: children wash up/ stack the dishwasher, dry up and tidy the kitchen
  • Children are encouraged generally to tidy up after themselves and to help each other during each session
  • If there is any time left after tea and clearing up, the children have let of a bit of steam before travelling home at 4.30pm.
