I’ve made this Makaton animal signing quiz (with videos!) as a resource to use with my KS3 curriculum this term. I plan to replace the video of Laura, our Speech and Language Therapist, with video of the kids doing the signs during the term.

We’ve had some child-protection issues at school lately involving social networking sites and I have been addressing e-Safety issues in class and assemblies. There are ongoing issues as to what sites to filter and whether online games should be permitted (Runescape is the current favourite amoungst the secondary cohort).
This film gave me food for thought – as seen as Susan’s blog. Could there be a role for using social networking sites as a teaching aid with ASD pupils who often have huge issues with socialising and self-confidence similar to (although more profound than) the 3 music fans in the video?
