Summer Fun – Virtual Drama Project

Racheal from Pink Class had fun over the summer through a virtual drama project. She was joined by some of our students along with learning disability nurses from Kingston University.

In order to better support the nurses in their roles, the project gave them the opportunity to see how children and young people with a range of needs communicate and interact. The pupils involved took part in weekly sessions based around a story about a lion and so there was lots of excitement and roaring involved!

The project was a huge success and those involved are now able to adapt and improve for future projects. As an added benefit, our families were able to continue social interaction with each other throughout the summer period and it was amazing to see how our pupils adapted to the virtual side so well!

A big thanks to the families who took part and well done to all of our pupils who again continue to show their resilience and ability to overcome challenges throughout these unprecedented times.

 

You are rightly proud of your work around pupil wellbeing, and ensuring pupils are ready for learning.  This has enabled you to establish a calm and purposeful learning environment for pupils with considerable needs.
