Our oldest pupils in the school for Autism have been practising their enterprise skills this term, making and selling items for both mother’s Day and Easter. They made some lovely cards, with a tea bag for pupils and staff to send to their mums! A13 followed instructions to make a Mother’s Day card, using visual instructions - We’re hoping all the Mums enjoyed their cup of tea!
For Easter they made hampers containing chocolate eggs, cards and even Easter Egg trees. A13 made their own Easter greetings cards using shaving foam and bubble wrap. They painted and decorated boxes and filled them with shredded paper with some chocolate Easter surprises mixed in! Pupils hung hand decorated eggs onto the Easter trees and wrapped the Easter goodies in cellophane with bows to secure. They hope customers enjoy their Easter gifts.
They have all enjoyed making the gifts and selling them and later in the year, they will get to decide how to spend the profits of their hard work. It is good for our children to use their skills to provide a service or make products and even better to get a treat at the end of it!
