School Visit – Wednesday 9th March 2022

On the 9th March, Barbados Class were delighted to welcome visitors from Year 6 Seabrook Primary School. We enjoyed a question and answer session where the children asked each other questions to find out about each other’s schools, and enjoyed making comparisons. We invited our visitors to travel back in time by crawling through a tunnel to explore our Ancient Egypt Imagining Autism pod. Our Year 6’s loved showing our new friends around the school, in particular the adventure playground and the sensory garden. After enjoying refreshments together, we then produced these amazing silhouette paintings before saying goodbye. We plan to continue our collaboration by visiting Seabrook Primary School.

Coffee Morning – Wednesday 9th March 2022

The 9th March saw the second coffee morning at The Beacon Folkestone ☕️ Parents stayed for coffee and cake, chatted the time away sharing stories and recommending places to visit that suit their young people. Feedback was very positive and all would like to increase the opportunity to meet, talk and make new friends and connections. The next coffee morning all Beacon parents are invited to will be held at our satellite at Walmer on Tuesday the 22nd March between 9.15am and 10.45am. We look forward to seeing you then!
