'Autism and Nature have published three guides which aim to help families and teachers of children with autism to access nature and the countryside in Kent, East Sussex and West Sussex. The guides should also be useful to those living and working with adults on the autistic spectrum. The first chapter of each guide introduces some of the benefits of nature and the countryside for children with autism. This is followed by a guide to ‘natural’ places to visit in the countryside, which they believe many children with autism will enjoy. The guides end with a series of case stories, describing visits to the countryside by school children with autism and related conditions' text quoted from website

This photo is called Making The Most of It.It was taken during a wild and windy October day. It wasn't quite so wet as the recent weather!
I think making the most of it is what I want to do this year:
Work as hard as I can for my students and try and develop the skills they need for their next step in life .But I want to achieve this and do things for myself as well ! I'd like to get better at Photography,improve my running: Parkrun is a great safe and social way to run.
I'm also starting a course at college on using Social Media,so I may be blogging a bit more to practice some of my new skills!
I've written 23 posts this year, most have been linked to subjects I am teaching . Since September I have been teaching Personal Safety including Road Safety,a gardening enterprise, ICT safety, Community Action,Recycling and Maths and English.
We still use the OCR qualification : Life and Living and Employability but are exploring the opportunities offered by using RARPA,especially with students working at Milestone 8 or below.
My college is now in its third year of waiting for OFSTED but it should be over by February as this is the end of the legal time limit .
It was with dismay that I read the recent Guardian article:
I wish you a Happy New Year, sucess with your students and a good work life balance
Here are a list of my top ten posts from the last 5 years:
