November 2018 3AO

19th November 2018
In preparation for our Springfield Christmas Fayre, members of 3AO have been very industrious in making Christmas gifts to sell.
We invited Liz Rowlands of ‘Baubilicious’ to deliver a masterclass in making table centrepieces so that we could develop the necessary skills to manufacture quality items for our stall.
After introductions, and a short demonstration, our class began to thread baubles and weave tinsel around candles. The pupils used their bespoke speech mats and iPads to request different items, coloured baubles and equipment as the project developed. With Christmas music playing quietly in the background and all the brightly coloured tinsel and baubles on the table it truly felt as if Christmas had come early!
Many thanks to Liz for taking time from her busy schedule, and for donating the resources for this wonderful project. The students really enjoyed the session and have created some fabulous gifts to raise money for Springfield School Christmas Fayre.
