Storyline and Special Needs
The Child and Family Centre is designed to cater for the special needs of selected pupils and to give support to their parents. In this small school in Hirtshals the staff have recently been using a Desert Island Storyline very successfuly to motivate language work from their 8 pupils. The teachers have experienced a rich and rewarding reaction to the linked activities targeted mainly at language development and self awareness. The topics also provide for sharing and cooperative learning. Parents visit regularly and are always included in the culminating event.Two Storylines are used each year and previous designs have included the Circus and Witches.
