In spite of the inevitable teething problems that are bound to arise during a period of transition for young people on the autistic spectrum we have had a successful week and I am incredibly proud of all pupils who have either changed classroom, welcomed a new peer group and staff or made the journey to Knox Academy for classes in specific subject classes. For each individual this is a celebration of personal achievement and provides further opportunities for reflection and self-evaluation. It also builds resilience.

What a great start to transition. Not only has the weather been incredibly kind to us with long, dry warm days providing ample opportunity for outdoor learning,  but we had an extra –ordinary opportunity on Monday to create a fully inclusive play area in a playground that has until now had very limited appeal.

What a difference the weather makes: lifting spirits, increasing resilience and generating energy. I have certainly benefited from the warmth and longer days during a recent absence and know that much of my recovery is due to the better weather.

On Monday 4th June and Tuesday 5th June 2018, Meadowpark will have a climbable tyre structure built in the playground. The project is in conjunction with Loose Parts Play, who have been active within the school for some time now. The tyres have begun to arrive, and our pupils are very excited by it all. Some great play, exploration and learning is already happening!

In order to successfully undertake this project, we need volunteers to assist with the build. Think DIY Big Build!

We are looking for help on both days, in two ‘shifts’, from 9.30 am – 12.30pm, and from 1 pm – 3.15andpm. There will be some heavy lifting involved, as the tyres are large, so if you have back, or other related issues, please do not volunteer, we don’t want any injuries!

All volunteers will receive a health and safety briefing beforehand, and will be working alongside the team overseeing the project. Suitable clothing for volunteering would be boots and gardening gloves, and dress for the weather!

If you are able to volunteer your time either in the morning or afternoon, on either day, please contact Meadowpark.
