Halloween

This week has been filled with lots of Halloween fun. On Monday we did lots of fun Halloween dances. On Tuesday we did Halloween Science activities. We placed orange and green sweets around the edges of a plate and used a water dropper to fill the middle with water. Some pupils were able to use the water dropper and then watch and the colour moved to the inside of the plate creating a pumpkin. All pupils enjoys watching the colour move. We also make pumpkin fizzers again some pupils were able to use the droppers and add vinegar to the experiment with gestural support.

On Wednesday we made mummies. All pupils were able to hold the string and be supported physically by staff to wrap the wool around the person shape to make the mummy.  Some pupils were able to participate actively wrapping their wool independently with only spoken support.

On Thursday we went on a wet ghost hunt in the garden. We all collected our jackets with little support and then walked to the garden. We then all looked for little ghosts that were hiding in the garden. Everyone was able to find one and bring them back to class.

Have a cup of kindness

To follow on from our friendship assembly and because February is Friendly February.  We made out own kindness cups. We decorated them with stickers and stampers and then picture a symbol of how we are going to be kind.  We chose sharing, helping, listening and hugging. We added these mugs along with some of our friendship assembly to our display and will continue to look at different ways to be friendly and kid throughout the month of February.
