This week Orchid class enjoyed some outdoor learning and used different types of vehicles to make marks in the sand. Learners enjoyed pushing the wheels through the sand and feeling it on their hands.
Lotus class explored different textures and got very messy finding their favourite items in some cold spaghetti! They worked on their vocal responses when presented with the different textures.
Mysha had her first go on the adapted trikes this week. She did brilliantly and even pedalled by herself for a while!
On Thursday, Buttercup class went out for a trip to the local community cafe and used switches to interact with others while they were there. Well done.
Mary Seacole class have started with their Christmas sensory story of Santa's Hand. Exploring different sensory inputs to finally find Santa!
This week the Arts Award students performed Shakespeare's 12th Night at The Arts Depot in North Finchley. They rehearsed on stage with professional actors prior to the big performance! They were first on stage and were followed by 3 other Camden schools, all performing various Shakespeare plays.
Many of the learners families and friends came to watch the performance. They put on an amazing show and received a standing-ovation from the audience!
Camden hosted a successful 'Preparing for Adulthood' Event at the Greenwood Centre where Swiss Cottage's Post-16 department had a stall. The event promoted the updated Pathway to Adulthood Document and the opportunity for parents, carers and young people to meet with services who offer support to young people with disabilities from 16 years and over.
It was lovely to see many Swiss Cottage parents in attendance and a group of Year 14 learners too. For more info- https://www.preparingforadulthood.org.uk/
