On Friday the 11th November children and young people from all key stages took part in a Rememberance Day ceremony.
We made and presented our own handmade poppy wreaths and took part in a 2 minute silence.
Students at Newman Special School worked with a local business owner to show local employers the unique skills they have to offer the labour market. The students showcased their skills at Newman’s end of term ‘Enterprise Skills Fair’.
Students from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 5 were involved in different ways, including making and selling hand crafted products, arranging games and serving refreshments to parents, carers and siblings. Students produced their own marketing, considered everyone’s role, planned their stall and displays and handled money at the event. Engagement and independence skills were at the top of the agenda on the day while staff took a step back and let students lead wherever possible. Everyone who attended was very impressed and these are just a couple of comments made by parents/carers – Carole said 'There is a wonderful array of handmade goods. I was impressed with a student using his talker to sell candles' and Marie commented upon how 'Lovely and well set out the event was and everyone looked happy' She went on to say that 'this event shows what the kids are capable of'.
The summer holiday can be a difficult time for families with autistic children.
The National Autistic Society we have gathered some articles offering advice on managing these issues which can be downloaded HERE.

The Kindness Tree
Newman School is focused on the importance of being kind. At school we have a kindness tree where we write nice messages about people. The kindness tree is near the hall and on the way to the bottom corridor. To be kind you can help each other, share, look after people and solve propblems with others. The leaves are shaped like hands.
