If I Were a Rich Man…..

The Transition boys had a busy start to the new term. This week they were Successful Learners when they were checking totals of coins in different purses. They then had the challenge of putting them in order from most money to least money.

Happy New Year

A successful first week back to school, everyone has enjoyed getting back into our hard work activities.  We started the week by setting our New Year goals for 2019.  The boys were confident individuals in selecting their specific goals.

We played some time telling games with our friends and had fun whilst working hard.

Jack worked very hard this week working on his writing and listening skills.

All the boys created a Christmas holiday storyboard and shared it with their friends.  We were successful learners and confident individuals to share what Santa brought us, what we had for Christmas dinner, who we had dinner with and any other activities we took part in over the holidays.

Money Money Money

The Transition boys were  all Successful Learners making totals with money in a Numeracy lesson.  The boys had to make sure not to go over the total asked for or the Evil Banker (Mr Nicoll) would keep the extra! Luckily all boys managed to keep their correct change.

Math Games

We all had fun taking part in a variety of different math games, we were working on our memory skills.

All the boys were successful learners and were very engaged.

We had to listen three numbers that were only said once and then press the numbers in the correct order on the sequencer.

Also listened to the pattern the bell was played and copy the same pattern back.

Also we had the numbers on a dice and then we had 3 seconds to look at the position of the balls before it was covered again to see at a glance if we  could say the number that was there.

First Oak outing of the year, the boys were all very excited to go a walk and it was a lovely morning. All boys were very responsible citizens and were very good with their traffic awareness.

We went to shop and used our coins to pay for our items, the boys were responsible for carrying their own money to the shop and not losing it.

A great morning out in the community.

Numeracy Confidence in the Pine Class

On Tuesday morning was were all hard working individuals during our Numeracy class time. Some of us enjoyed the counting songs, others matching the objects to the numbers, some counting and looking for the missing numbers – Maths is Fun!!!

Halloween Howlers

The Stars Class enjoyed lots of Halloween activities this week and a sensory assembly. We harvested the pumpkins we’d grown in the garden.

What’s The Time ?

Transition boys were Successful Learners by showing the time on their own analog clocks during their numeracy lesson.

Shut the Box

The Transition boys were Effective Contributors when they played ‘Shut the Box’ this week (Mr Nicoll’s favourite game!). They had to make their own dice from a template and add the correct number of dots. The boys then worked in pairs to try and roll combinations of numbers which corresponded to the numbers from two to twelve. The first team to complete this, shut the box.

Changing Seasons

The Stars Class have noticed the trees are changing in the garden. We collected different coloured leaves and made colourful autumn prints with them. We had fun exploring a Nanny McPhee story bag and handling the props.
