Class 1

Class 1 Update - January 2018

In Class 1 we have enjoyed lots of sensory experiences linked to our topic ‘Winter’. In our photos you can see us making snowmen buns, painting robins and snowy pictures and touching silver and blue things. Our lovely staff even encouraged us to touch ice and snow—some of us were not impressed! We have also been able to make as much noise as we wanted during the new drumming workshops. We had a birthday party for George and Connie and invited our friends from Class 5.

Class 1 November 2017 Update

Class 1 has been transformed into our very own circus as part of our new topic. Both Staff and pupils have been dressed up as circus clowns with colourful wigs and big red noses – much to Connie’s amusement!

Pupils have also enjoyed Music Therapy with Caolan, especially when he plays his guitar—but he better watch out because it looks like George is after his job!

Some of our wee pupils have been poorly this month and we have really missed them in our Class. We hope our Class is back to full strength very soon.

Class 1 May 2016 Update

We have continued with the topic “Our School” and visited Doreen to see her office and the work she does. Then in class we set up our own office and have enjoyed playing in it.

We have also visited the Caretaker Chris and helped him with some of his jobs. We really enjoyed washing the school windows.

We have been learning about full and empty. We filled flower pots with sand and planted flowers in them and used dry rice to fill up the trailers in the farm.

We have enjoyed outdoors and did P.E outside. We were great a t throwing the ball in the net.

Class 1 April Update

Our new topic this term is “My School”. This month we have been looking at the work our dinner lady does in the canteen. We used a variety of things from the kitchen to make prints with. We visited Jean the dinner lady and she showed us what she does in the canteen. We made a canteen in our role play area in class and pretended we were cooks.

A lady from the library visited us and told us a story all about a sunflower.

We all joined in with the “The Big Challenge”

Everyone enjoyed our trip to the Fun House where we played and had treats for break!
