We are looking at different festivals in school this half term and many classes have been learning about Bonfire Night. Classes been enjoying Bonfire night traditions such as a firework and bonfire sensory session in the studio and making chocolate apples to enjoy.
Autism and Art
Published: 11 October 2020
Last week I posted an article about music, as it has been the main focus of learning in some of our classrooms this half term. This week I’ve shared an article from the National Autistic Society about art and autism. Art has been the focus of some of our classes this half term so I thought it would be good to share some of the benefits of this topic.

Some of our classes have been exploring the theme ‘Making Music’ in school this half term, they are enjoying using and and listening to a range of musical instruments in a number of different ways, focusing on different skills whilst doing so (expressive communication, making choice, following instructions etc).
