Brook Green's Panto Visit


Students from Brook Green went to see Dick Whittington at the Plymouth Theatre Royal on Wednesday 9th January!  Oh no they didn't...oh yes they did!  Everyone agreed that it was a fantastic experience and some students said it was 'hilarious', 'funny', 'great' and 'brilliant'!  It was a special 'relaxed' performance of the pantomime where the lights are on and there are no loud noises so it suits students with autism and other SEND issues.  The stars of the show Samantha Womack, John Partridge and Andy Ford even reminded the audience at the start of the show that none of the show was real and that it was make-believe just to reassure the audience!   The students and staff sang along to songs, clapped to the rhythm of the music and even danced a little! Our favourite character was 'King Rat' played by John Partridge!

Plymouth Raiders - London City Royals

Plymouth Raiders 84 – 77 London City Royals

22 Brook Green students accompanied by Brook Green staff attended a Plymouth Raiders clinic on Sunday 16Th December 2018.

The students were a credit to themselves, Parents / Carers and Brook Green the day was enjoyed by all.

One Student won the Plymouth City Bus shoot out winning a prize.


Plymouth Raiders recorded their sixth league win of the season as they claimed victory against league newcomers London City Royals 84-77 at Pavilions on Sunday Afternoon.

The home side had a full strength side to choose from for a second game in a row and welcomed back former Raiders Will Neighbor and Elvisi Dusha to Plymouth after their moves to London Royals; the latter having worked with coach Paul James at Worcester last season too.

With both sides level on points in the table, this was set to be a tight affair and that’s how the first half played out, with the biggest lead in the half just six points.

As for Plymouth, Joonas Jarvelainen has been out of the side for a while with a thumb injury, but this didn’t seem to phase him as he tucked away two stylish 3-point shots as well as going to work inside to rally his team into a 45-43 lead at half-time.

In the second half, Raiders looked to pull away from the visitors and their talisman Donte Nicholas went to work once again – his 19 points, 15 rebounds and 4 steals in the game pointed to a man that is on top of his game at the moment.

Students are looking forward to the next Clinic February 2019.


Dental Fun at Brook Green

Dental Fun Day at Brook Green


Going to the dentist can be a scary experience for adults and children.  At Brook Green we were very lucky that Mrs Holt arranged for dental students from Plymouth University (who are all in their second year and already work with students at Brook Green) to do a 'Dental Fun Day' where students were able to overcome the fear of the dentist by doing a variety of activities to overcome sensory fears and issues.  As you can see from the photographs, students took part in various workshop activities including toothpaste tasting, using disclosing tablets, mask design, dressing up in the masks, gowns and gloves and then sitting in the dentists chair.  Students from Plymouth University were brilliant with the students and we would like to say a massive thank you to them!

The Brook Green Disco 2018 


It's beginning to look a lot like...'the Brook Green Christmas Disco'! 

Students and staff had a dance-tastic time at the Christmas Disco.  Simon 'Mr Disco' Dean was our 'resident DJ' for the evening and brought along his own disco equipment that included fantastic lights, booming speakers and an amazing selection of music.  Students danced the night away with sounds and dances including 'The Floss', 'Baby Shark' and 'Superman'.

Mrs Holt and her helper Mrs Jordan staffed the squash and crisp bar whilst Miss Eastel gave a separate E-Safety talk to parents and carers downstairs. 

A massive thank you to Miss Wesemann for organising the evening for everyone!
