It has been a busy and enjoyable term in Fun Clubs. The nicer weather has meant that fitness club has been able to make use of the amazing outdoor gym equipment and add to their Golden Mile scores. Film club was able to enjoy our brand new popcorn maker to add to the cinema experience and it has been really good at encouraging pupils to share. Film Club was recently involved in a research project aimed at improving film viewing and reviewing experiences for those young people with addition needs, the group had to watch a selection of films they would not normally have selected for themselves and it was very interesting to hear their varying opinions and it definitely encouraged pupils to communicate more with either! Dance club also had some new equipment to help their expressive movements. This term was very focused on free movement to the music and encouraging the group to come together to play games and activities. Cooking and Aqua remain popular clubs with pupils wanting to increase their skills and independence. Social club enjoyed a range of games and craft activities as well as the options to join in with film club on some occasions.
Summer term will see Dance club change into music and movement. This will still include dance but will also include some Makaton Choir and giving pupils a chance to try some instruments. We are also very excited to be joining with Winchester College to offer a fishing club…… so look out for our next blog entry to get news on this!!
