The pupils in this video were taking part in Brick Club. The main purpose of these sessions are to facilitate and develop social interaction and communication between peers. In this video you will see that one pupil was happy, using symbols to request different coloured bricks from another pupil. The other pupil was able to match the coloured symbol to the correct colour brick and pass this brick to their peer.
