Balloon Rockets – January 2017
As part of our design and inventions topic we have been making different modes of transport in science and exploring how to make them move using different forces. In the photos students made balloon rockets, they followed symbols supported instructions, requested resources using their preferred method of communication and commented on what they observed and what they thought might happen using PECS.
Enterprise – January 2017
We have begun a class enterprise called ‘pleased to greet you’ making a selection of greetings cards. Students have made choices for designs, organised resources and completed cards making choices and requests for colours and materials. We are hoping to sell cards within school and a local café.
ASDAN – Autumn Term 2016
The students worked on the module ‘Performing Arts’. Throughout this module they explored various aspects of performance including mask work, puppetry, dancing and mime. They really enjoyed participating in the mime session, working with each other to face paint and explore movement.
