Confident Individuals – Preparing for Pupil Council

The Transition boys made sure that they has their say this week when preparing for pupil council. They had to give the class idea for themes and outdoor work. As a class they were Confident Individuals and came up with a few options. As it was election week we put those options to a vote, each boy selected their favourite on the interactive board. We will feed back our answers to the Pupil Council next week.

Just a short week of School in the Pine Room.

IDL – No Judging

Our IDL theme work this term is based on Beauty and the Beast, accepting everyone and not judging someone by the way they look.

We looked at the main characters and discussed how they looked at different sections of the story.

Our theme is do not judge someone but take the time to get to know them first. Be confident individuals and celebrate what makes us a good friend.

We discussed what qualities are in a good friend, then thought about what is our own best quality is.  We shared this with the class and then told everyone who our best friend is.  We then took part in some activities that our friends like to do.

We planted our very on rose seeds and made some flowers from a variety of shapes.

Everyone chose their favourite character and everyone wanted to be the Beast.

It has been all about Literacy this week.

In the Oak class we have worked hard on our literacy, listening and talking skills.  We have all been confident individuals when looking and describing what we see in pictures.  We enjoyed looking at our self in the mirror, we have a class who really enjoy admiring themselves.

Everyone had to complete a portrait of themselves and then confidently stand and share their features of hair colour and eye colour to the class.  We were very proud of the loud clear and confident voices used when talking to their friends.

We have been working on improving our reading skills and recognising the sound two letters make when they are put together.  We were successful learners working on our own sounds and could roll and read the words.

We have had effective contributors working well with a partner to complete a jigsaw puzzle with some gestural support from an adult.  Lots of great team work and problem solving whilst working against the clock to complete.

Welcome Back Pine Class – we have missed you!

We were all so HAPPY to be back together in the Pine Room – Hooray!!!

Earth Day

Yesterday was Earth Day. We are Effective Contributors and already in the Bluebells class recycle and use reusable cups at snack time. We used up scrap tissue paper that we ripped up to make some earth sun catchers for our windows. We were Confident individuals and  were able to place the green and blue tissue paper inside the circle to make land and water on our earth.  We also did some painting. We used blue and green to make it look like a world and drew around our hands and used scissors to cut them out. Once dry we stuck a heart in the middle and our hands to the side as if we were holding the earth.

We also sat in the dark and read a story with torches. It was great fun. It was a sensory story and they enjoyed feeling the different items in the pages.
