Where is the Star?

Children with profound and multiple learning difficulties go on a multisensory journey to find a star for their Christmas tree.

By Maria Coyle, Brain Injury Hub editor My colleagues and I had a superb morning watching The Children's Trust School Christmas play on Friday, 18 December. The school is attended by children and young people with profound and multiple learning difficulties and staff focus on multisensory techniques to engage the pupils.  Their Christmas play, Where is the Star?, involved pupils and staff travelling on a colourful 'magic carpet' to different parts of the world looking for a star for the top of their tree.  The audience were transported to settings in America, China and Poland and we got involved by handing out cultural decorations, making music and blowing bubbles! It was magical to see the pupils responding to the changing sounds and being encouraged by their teachers and assistants to feel the textures of the different decorations. Well done to Steve Snook, who once again organised a fantastic event and really dressed for the part and also to all of the staff and pupils for putting on a great show. It was certainly a welcome treat for a Friday morning.
