Autism Awareness Day
St Mary's school took part in autism awareness day by coming to school in their pyjamas for tired Tuesday.
All classes took part in different activities around school. They went to different classes and worked with different teachers to carry out sessions to learn about Autism.
It was a fantastic day and everyone felt as though they had more understanding about autism and how to support children who have, even though it may be difficult to identify who has an autistic spectrum.
Some of the activities were:
senses - learning about different tastes, touch, sound that we like and dislike.
learning about the sensory overload from watching videos - which can be found on the link below.
developing friendships and supporting people who struggle to make friends.
Looking at the emotions of people - we created a glitter shaker to refer to how we feel inside.
Please take a look at our fabulous day!
