Around the World Theme Day

All pupils have been participating in an Around the World Theme day today.  They have sampled foods from around the world, did some Irish dancing and a conga!  They have made some arts and craft items to display what they have learnt and dressed some figures in appropriate clothes for different weather.

Wood Work Day!

Yesterday, all of our pupils participated in a wood work day run by Skills for Employment.  They brought a bus that had all the tools that the pupils needed to make a bug house.  The pupils enjoyed measuring the wood, sawing it and then drilling in the screws to hold it all together!

 

Staff Training

Today is an INSET day at Quest.  The staff have received further training on data analysis and ethical conduct.  Our Speech and Language Therapist also delivered training sessions on augmentative communication systems.

Weekly trampoline lessons

Throughout the academic year, the pupils attend a regular offsite trampoline lesson at our local leisure centre.  This provides a chance for our pupils to generalise their listening skills with less familiar adults as these sessions are taught by an external instructor.  The sessions increase their gross motor skills by learning new techniques on the trampoline.

 

BCBA Supervision

Some of our current staff cohort have completed their Masters in ABA and are receiving individual and group supervision from our BCBAs (Board Certified Behaviour Analyst).  This will enable them to complete enough supervision hours to gain the BCBA qualification themselves.   Our qualified RBTs (Registered Behaviour Technician) also continue their supervision in these sessions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Coastal Theme Day

The pupils are having a great day learning all about the seaside.  They have been taught about the importance of recycling and keeping the environment tidy.  There has been lots of craft involving making a beach in a jar, a sunset picture and a mermaid or jelly fish.  The pupils have also played various beach games such as beach volley ball and Limbo in the play ground!
