Rainforest Artwork

16th July 2019

All our children are between the ages of 2 and 19, Villa Real School is a special school for people with severe or profound learning difficulties, many also have autism or associated physical difficulties, sensory impairments including severe visual impairment, complex physical difficulties / motor function disorders etc so cannot control their head or develop fine motor skills. All of the work is therefore below the appropriate standard for the norm of their age but they have tried really hard in their art work. They have followed your progress watching on interactive whiteboards and we had a whole school assembly looking at the work of John Dyer and Nixiwaka, looking at videos of your project. They accompanied the tribal singers and musicians with guitars on you tube, looked at climate change and met a rainforest tortoise who came around the classes to show them the animals that may lose their habitat. Please would you consider our art work even though it does not reflect age appropriate skills. I am also unable to include their surnames due to data protection around vulnerable young people.

 

Sports Day 2019

11th July 2019

Following parents’ comments we moved our Sports Day outside this year. It was lovely to see so many parents and volunteers supporting our pupils as they enjoyed a rare moment of sunshine. The activities went down very well as you can see by the pictures. A big thank you to the Academy for hosting. Next year we promises a dad’s race!

 

Summer Themed Art Competition

Our summer theme is the natural environment and flowering plants. We created a triptych – 3-piece art work as a group exploring nature and wildlife. We also explored the same theme creating art with using ICT software on iPads. These images support the main mixed media art work created in collage, pastel and paint.  Due to the severity of our young people’s special needs, they had support to participate and develop fine motor skills. We have entered a local competition and hope we have good luck.
