Art Workshop

Within our latest Parents Art Workshop, parents and carers had the opportunity to learn about Colour Theory, with an emphasis on the Colour Wheel and how it can be applied to a piece of artwork. We also explored the use of paint and paintbrush techniques.

We then had the opportunity  to apply this knowledge, by creating a painting inspired by patterns from around the world.

Please take the time to look through the photographs of the event and celebrate the beautiful outcomes.

Thanks to all parents who participated. It was great to se so many of your there!

A special thanks to parents who came from other schools within Tower Hamlets, namely Cayley, Smithy Street and Marian Richardson.

Watch this space for our next art workshop, where we will be focussing on Clay and Ceramics. – Ash

Autism friendly screening

Ben Jonson arranged an autism friendly screening of ‘Madagascar 2’. The afternoon was filled with fun, laughter and plenty of popcorn!  All the children decorated their own popcorn cones which was very exciting to see! The children were in a relaxed atmosphere and had the option to take breaks when needed. Considering the success we have had we aim to take this project to another level by inviting other schools to our next screening which will take place during ‘Autism Awareness week’. Watch this space for more exciting news! What a great end to the half term! – Shireena

SEN Boccia competition

On Tuesday 24th January, Ben Jonson took part in the annual SEN Boccia competition at Swanlea Secondary School. Our children competed against other schools from the borough. We managed to win two games and draw one in the group stages, which allowed us to progress to the quarter finals which we won. We then progressed to the semi finals but despite the valiant effort of the children, we lost 2-0. Considering the fact that it was the first time some children had competed against other schools, our children should be immensely proud of their achievements. It was amazing to see the children compete with smiles on their faces and thoroughly enjoy themselves.


Go Ben Jonson!
