Anti Bullying Week.

This week is the UK Anti Bullying Week. The event is organised by Anti Bullying Alliance with the theme this year being “United Against Bullying”. Our teachers have been delivering lessons to the pupils to reinforce the importance of being kind and how their behaviour impacts others around them.
We have also been testing our facilities to continue delivering our group lessons should our teachers need to isolate during this pandemic. The set up worked well and the pupils seemed to enjoy the different method!

Children in Need 2020

Today, we have been raising money for Children in Need.  The pupils and staff have come in their own clothes (or some in fancy dress!) for a £1 donation.  They have completed some Pudsey Bear maths activities, watched a story about fundraising and have participated in a danceathon and yoga!  We have raised £40 so far!

 

Lessons at Quest.

We offer our pupils a full and wide ranging educational experience, whilst maintaining a clear focus on skills that are essential for their personal development and well being, such as communication, behaviour and independence skills (including fine and gross motor skills).

We have a distinctive teaching methodology, based on fundamental principles of behaviour science, and a curriculum specifically designed for our pupils’individual needs.  They also work in small groups to practise social and communication skills together.

 

Brazil Theme day.

Today is Brazil Theme day at Quest.  The pupils are learning all about Brazil through various activities.  They have made masks, head pieces and musical instruments for their carnival.  At the carnival, they dressed up and danced to Brazilian music.  The pupils have also practised their football skills, found some animals hiding around the school using the binoculars they made and have had their photos taken in a photo booth.

We hope everyone has a lovely half term break!

Woodland Walk.

Some of the pupils have been on a Woodland walk this week, trekking across country for almost two miles.  They have been learning about nature and learning which plants grow in the woods.

 

Safer Internet Day 2021.

We have registered to take part in the Annual Safer Internet day, next February.  Online Safety is embedded in the pupils’ curriculum throughout the year, however this is a day for global celebration.  It provides an opportunity  to focus on all aspects of staying safe online. We use resources from the UK Safer Internet Centre to create a meaningful and fun day to remind our pupils how to stay safe when using the internet.  They also provide resources for parents and carers to support their child whilst using the internet at home. https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/advice-centre/parents-and-carers

 

Under the Sea Theme Day.

The pupils have been participating in an Under the Sea Theme Day. They have made an under water sensory bottle,  have practiced their aiming skills by throwing bean bags into a shark’s mouth and have made lots of under the sea craft.

We wish everyone a lovely Summer break and hope for a return to normality in September!
