Class 2 Update - October 2019

We have been continuing work on ‘Our Senses’ topic and we have focused on smell and sight. We’ve enjoyed using scented dough and paint and even made our own ‘sensory soup’ with cloves. We read ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?’, and loved linking this to our teddy hospital role play area. We have touched on Autumn through our art work and rhymes and look forward to exploring natural materials linked to autumn next month.

We enjoyed activities linked to Harvest and explored a variety of foods and sang Harvest songs. Our favourite song was ‘one potato, two potato…’ We’ve been working hard on waiting our turn so we can get to play skittles.

All the staff wish the children a happy and safe half-term !

Eco Team Sponsored Walk

The Eco Team organized a ‘Senior School Sponsored Walk’ at Scarva Towpath. They raised funds to support the ‘Toilet Twinning’ Project that helps people to have access to safe sanitation, clean water and hygiene education. The Senior pupils managed to raise £900 which enabled the project to build 15 toilets in a range of places around the world, including Africa, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Central America. The Eco Team would like to thank people again for their donations and support. We are delighted that the toilets will a big difference to many communities.

Siblings Group – Final meeting for this year!

The Siblings went canoeing at Craigavon Watersports Centre for their end of year trip. We all had an amazing time. We worked together as a team to race each other and the blue team just won by a small margin. Lots of the Siblings were very brave and jumped into the water! We also enjoyed having tea together at McDonalds.
