SCHOOL NEWS

On Monday we welcomed Miss Caitriona Geraghty to the staff of Parayhouse. Miss G is the Lead Speech and Language Therapist and will be working with Jupiter and Mars.  This week she has been visiting and observing all of the students in their groups.

On Tuesday we also welcomed Mrs. Patsy Walker back to the Parayhouse staff.  Mrs. W will be working on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

 

Wool for School

Dear Parents / Carers

Can you help us please? In Art we are making some sculptures using wool and we need lots more. Any donations, large or small, would be very much appreciated! 

Thanks

Ms. Codd

We would like to thank the Lambeth Passenger Assistant for the wool that she donated and her generous donation to the school!!!

 

TATE MODERN TRIP

Ms. Codd writes

This Tuesday, Neptune visited Tate Modern to find out about artworks in the Materials and Objects galleries. We had activities to help us engage with the artworks, such as lacing and matching pictures. We also got to play on the giant striped colourful carpet in the Turbine Hall - George told us he liked rolling down the carpet best, and Edie enjoyed feeling the large orange carpet on the wall.
