(UK) Leeds school gets renovated "sensory area" bus

Nov 12, 2018, Yorkshire Post: Double-decker bus just the ticket for learning https://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/news/education/double-decker-bus-just-the-ticket-for-learning-1-9439085 A special school in Leeds has created a sensory area to transform learning for students - in an old refurbished bus. The unique space, which includes a library and soft play area, has been created after a £10,000 [$13,000 US dollars] fund-raising campaign from teachers, and with the aid of a donated bus from First Travel. … “It’s fantastic, such a unique environment, a fun one, that is accessible for our children,” said head of school Cath Hindmarch. “A big part of learning for our children is exploration. “For many people, it may seem a play bus, but that’s learning for our children. Learning can be social, it can be about sharing and stories and learning to play with others.”
