Welcome back to our students and families at the Albert Annex. We hope you had had a fantastic summer and enjoyed every last drop of the wall to wall sunshine. Staff are back and feeling refresehed, we have lots to look forward to. The staff team remains very similar with Sally Rogers heading the Annex provision, Paul Bennett as the Lead Practitioner, Paddy Lea, Megan Standen on the team. We welcome Ella Adams who joins us from Mary Rose. We will be welcoming some faces a little further into term once the students are settled.
We are looking ahead to a colourful term, working on the theme ‘Sew Great’. Students will be creating textiles based work, using sewing machines and t shirt printers to create products such as t shirt cushions, weaving with recycled materials, getting out into the community to search for yarn bombing. The products which our students make will be sold through enterprise events towards the end of term which we will be sure to let you know about so you can bring your wallets and get your Christmas shopping done! As part of our preparing for adulthood programme students will be developing their skills to navigate their way around the local environment and to find shops and businesses where they can find items they will need for their creative work this term.
As always please do not hesitate to get in touch with us, we’re looking forward to the year ahead and making sure we have huge amounts of fun!
