Safer Internet Day 2018

It’s Safer Internet Day 2018. As many autistic people conduct most of their socialising online, teaching our children and young people internet safety tips is all the more important. Here’s our post from last year with hints and tips received at the 2017 Wise Kids Summit:


Stop Motion Animation Session – 22nd January 2018

The children had a brilliant time at their stop motion animation session with Codez Academy. As this was the first week, the children could choose whether they wanted to work in groups or individually for the duration of the course, and started to think about what their end video could be.

The session began with a video showing the children what can be achieved using stop motion animation. Following the clip, the children created storyboards, and created draft figures out of Plasticine to get an idea of how their ideas can be brought to life. There was some fantastic team work, and amazing creativity from all of the children. We can’t wait until next week when they will start building their sets using recycled materials.

Vol nteering: all that’s missing is U!

We are filling our fundraising diary quickly, and have a large number of events planned already. Unfortunately, our core team is extremely small, and we need your help.

Join our volunteer bank today, and commit as little as one hour of your time.
