What an amazing day and evening. The students spent the day prepping for their prom, wearing pjs, having their hair done and dressing in the most amazing outfits. More photos will follow.
Class 11 went to Beach Cove at Hornsea Freeport. They enjoyed the bouncy pillow and had fun on the zip wire. The day was finished off with a huge ice-cream on the sea front.
Fantastic weather, fantastic day. Junior sports day had a change of format with a carousel of activities, including dance, curling, dodge ball. assault course and of course the traditional races. Senior sports day was help with the more traditional races including a very competitive parents race (well done Dave).
We are pleased to announce that Tweendykes has now converted to Humber Education Trust (HET). The trust has 9 primary schools and two other special schools Ganton and Frederick Homes.
The trust vision is to deliver the very best educational experience for all children and young people. As a partnership, our strength lies in a common purpose: high aspirations, moral values, care and support; yet celebrates our individual uniqueness.
HET will be applying to the DFE to build and run the new SLD free school

In March this year, school responded to a parent request for basic First Aid training to be better equipped to deal with emergencies such as seizures and choking . The local training company HSTS laid on a 3 hour course which 13 parents attended in school. It was an excellent hands-on course, as we practicised how to give CPR and abdominal thrusts, should the need arise. The trainer was excellent as she took into account that some of our children are non-verbal or may be wheelchair bound and she was happy to answer questions.
We all learned a lot and even received a certificate at the end of the course. It was really worthwhile and I hope that it becomes an annual training offer for Tweendykes parents and carers.
Please contact the school if you would be interested in attending a future course.
Looks like great fun in some great weather
We’ve had a very busy last week in school before the Easter holidays. On Wednesday we had our Easter Bonnet parade and the first viewing of this years music video. Thursday saw classes take part in numerous activities for Autism Awareness Day and our Awards assembly.
More pictures will follow after the Easter break.
Some brilliant red nose designs from our sixth form students. We raised a total of £195.10.

Some photos of Class 2 enjoying their Chinese New Year 2019 celebrations.
This term our theme is Hull and classes will be doing lots of work around this.
Class 4 have been visiting a local Hull park on Fridays.
For the first time we split the junior and senior/ six form Christmas production. Everyone appears to agree that this worked much better with both productions been the best in memory. Here are some photos of the junior production.
Each department created a Christmas jumper - modelled by Mrs Moorcroft, Mr Percival and Mr Fenner. We voted by the cheer method, Mr Percival won by a resounding amount of noise - I think the skirt won it.
On Friday 23rd November we held our first Christmas fair. Pupils had made a wide range of Christmas treats including baubles, biscuits and cards. We pretty much all sold out and the pupils really enjoyed being stall holders, I think we may have a number of future top drawer sales people. The coffee and cakes also went down a treat. Pupils, parents, carers and visiting schools enjoyed the cinema experience were popcorn was shared while watching our music video. In all we made over £400 and would like to thank every one who participated.
Lots of our pupils and staff came to school in their onsies and pj’s on Friday for children in need day. We also took part in an online duck race. We raised £186.45 and had lots of fun.
