Every Friday afternoon in the school for Autism, pupils are taking part in a thematic art session.
Today, the older classes have taken part in the ‘hook’ activity - the idea of this is that at the start of a new topic or theme, pupils will take part in an exciting activity that ‘hooks’ their interest - to engage the learner and to signify to them that a change in theme is occurring.
Four teachers chose an art activity for pupils to explore ways of creating different pieces of artwork.
Pupils spent the afternoon creating art using their feet to make a collaborative picture.
The theme culminates with a clear ‘closing’ activity which brings the learning together and promotes social experiences of sharing and togetherness.
