Last week the school held a ‘5 Keys’ activity morning and this week has been National Storytelling Week for everyone to get involved with.
The Arc School Napton ‘5 Keys’ approach has been developed by the school and involves; planning to succeed, making life choices, believing and achieving, resilience and social skills. The young people work towards targets and outcomes within these areas during the school day.
For National Story Telling Week, all children have had the chance, either individually or collaboratively to write a story. Several children even asked to share their stories in an extended assembly, very courageous indeed!
There has also been a reading challenge on every day. Each child has been supported to access the reading challenge at an appropriate level and there have been book prizes awarded for achievement and participation.
Each class has done a range of reading activities and have been writing creatively all week. All of the children and young people have thoroughly enjoyed the story telling, reading, '5 Keys' activities and been have been really keen to talk about everything they have learnt.
Arc School Napton supports children with a wide range of educational and social needs, including those associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, attachment disorder, autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia and social emotional and mental health difficulties.
Sounds like a really busy couple of weeks, with a lot learnt and a lot of fun had!
