Ducklings Post is a special scheme funded by our charity Ducklings. It sees carefully-selected books sent home to some of our students after they have been discharged. Students are then encouraged to read the books and send in a review to us. Lily really enjoyed reading her copy of The Goldfish Boy by Lisa Thompson. You can read her excellent five star review here (click on the image to see a larger version).
Alekss enjoyed his 14th Birthday in Hospital School. He really loves dubstep music and was excited when Edward Seven – a renowned dubstep DJ – made a special visit to school just for Alekss’ birthday. Edward showed Alekss the ropes and he was soon mixing his own dubstep set.
Jack was learning how to use watercolours to create a painting in the style of Claude Monet. He used a variety of techniques e.g. using a wash, painting wet on wet and wet on dry.
Lily enjoyed taking part in the Harvest assembly in the Chapel. She took the part of the mouse in the story ‘The Gigantic Turnip’, joined in with the singing and played her maraca with enthusiasm.
Lily loves books and is enjoying sharing this story with Kathy. She likes to retell the stories in her own words. She rewrote the story ‘The crying Princess’ and was working hard to remember her finger spaces, full stops and capital letters.
