Today we joined in with Saturday’s international Talk Like a Pirate Day!!
Whilst we had lots of fun dressing up, making treasure maps, going on treasure hunts, playing games, and finding REAL pirate ships, we also learnt to accept changes to our regular routines, and learnt a few new MAKATON signs along the way!
It is through creating predicable rountines and structure to our days that we are able to help our students feel safe and secure. We then are able to build up to tea…ching them how to cope when things change.
The favourite joke of the day today was:
“Why are pirates called pirates??!! …………”
