Virtual Drama Project supporting Learning Disability Nurses

For the 2nd year running, students and their families took part in a 6 week virtual drama project which was based around a story written for the project. The story centered around a lion who was ‘different’ and focused on celebrating our differences. The project was aimed at supporting learning disability nurses from Kingston University to see how children and young people with a range of needs communicate and interact.

As a finale to the project, we were able to organise a ‘real life’ meet up event at Ham House for everyone involved. It was such a fantastic experience and we were so proud of our students and their families, who engaged so well with the nurses as well as taking part in the activities throughout the day. We played lots of games, had a picnic, made our own lion masks, explored the gardens and the house. The day culminated in a whole group reading of the story in which everyone read a part. A huge thank you to our families who dedicated their time outside of school to provide this opportunity for the nurses and others to learn from our wonderful students.

The event was supported by Racheal Rajah, Green Class teacher, Dysart School

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.
