We're preparing to run a series of inspirational and informative talks. The first one will present information about diet with a focus on the pros and cons of a Gluten free, Casein free diet. The date is unconfirmed yet but will be some time in September. We'll post details as soon as we can.
We are now a registered Arts Award centre. Arts Award recognises children and young people’s development as artists and arts leaders. The award is a personal learning programme which develops and assesses both arts-related and transferable skills, such as creativity, communication and planning. Arts Award has five levels, four of which (Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold) are accredited qualifications on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). Discover is an introductory level. Young people aged 7–25 can take part. Bronze, Silver and Gold are only open to the 11+ age range.
Spinning plates are easy and fun. You can do a lot more with them than you might think. Lindzi often demonstrates a 'two plate frisbee throw start'!!! If you'd like to know what that is then maybe we can persuade Lindzi to put it on video.
The famous 'balance a peacock feather on your foot' trick.
Flower sticks are FUN!
We delivered 2 circus workshops at an open weekend that we hosted for True Serenity recently. The children who attended had a great time and learnt to juggle, spin plates, balance peacock feathers and twirl flower sticks.
Parents and grandparents joined in and the atmoshere was great as everyone was learning and playing together. There was plenty of laughter.
We started our case studies last week. Over the summer we plan to work with several families affected by autism
(even un-diagnosed). We will be working together to identify needs, devise strategies and develop person centred plans with each family.
Using a variety of techniques including creative activities and intensive interaction our experienced staff will work with families to help them get to the heart of an issue and create a realistic action plan.
There are still a couple of slots available so get in touch if you are interested in being included in this exciting pilot
