In Class 11, we have had a very busy month! We have been focusing on menus in literacy by looking at menus. We have created menus and even ordered from a menu at the ‘Donard Diner’. We have been investigating vehicles that use two wheels and four wheels and we even made our own vehicles to test down a ramp! We had a bit of fun and had a competition to see whose vehicle would travel the fastest and furthest. In Art, we have been trying to recreate an autumn scene for display in the senior concourse area. The class particularly enjoyed throwing up the leaves to make their autumn scene.
Welcome back to all pupils in class 11, old and new! We have had such a busy first month back and it’s lovely to see everyone is ready to get back to work.
This month we have been getting to know each other by completing ‘All About Me’ books, we have also been making clay faces, measuring our heights and shoe sizes as well as finding out our likes and dislikes.
Class 11 have enjoyed playing games during P.E. and our new sensory area in class has been a real hit! All pupils can access this area at certain times during the week!
A busy, yet fun filled June! We have had lots of events on including our World Cup Sports Day and our School Fete. Class 11 made plant pots to sell at the fete and they all really enjoyed making them so a big well done! We have been finishing off our topics and the pupils have enjoyed learning about Arctic and Antarctica and made igloos using sugar cubes, this was fun though, unfortunately, our igloos didn’t last very long. In maths, we have been looking at measures and completing a variety of practical tasks. We hope you all have a wonderful summer!
This month class 11 have enjoyed participating in a variety of activities! We have enjoyed the drumming workshops and the yoga sessions. A big congratulations to all pupils for receiving an Eco Clubs award for participating in the grass roots programme. Some of our pupils also performed at the Newry festival which was a great success! In class we are continuing to look at how to budget our money, we are also starting our new topics on Changes and Weather!
Class 11 have enjoyed a variety of activities this month that has focused on being healthy. We have enjoyed participating in yoga and dance as well as tasting healthy foods during our juice and jive morning. We have enjoyed playing the drums in the drumming workshop and we are so proud of our pupils who were excellent when performing at the Armagh Theatre! Well done! We have been focusing on how to spend money well and the importance of budgeting money in our ‘money, money, money’ activity!
Our Eco Schools project continued in February. The class have enjoyed learning all about sea life and we have made an insect hotel. Pancake Tuesday was a great success with lots of clean plates.
We all got our creative caps on to make Valentine Cards before dancing the morning away at our Valentine Disco with Ceara. Colm had a big birthday celebration in class and enjoyed a lovely lunch courtesy of Colm’s Mum.
Healthy eating has been a big part of our topic this month and we are looking forward to trying foods from around the world.
What a busy January! Class 11 have had lots on and we are all very busy indeed. We have started our Grass Roots programme and we have enjoyed looking at our school grounds to make plans for a mini beast hotel. We also made bat boxes and bird feeders to try and attract some flying friends! Class 11 have enjoyed the drumming workshop on a Wednesday and everyone is great at making rhythms. We are starting our healthy eating programme this term and class 11 have already decided on the healthy options we will be making in cookery! This is great and we will be increasing our exercise in P.E by participating in dance. We have also enjoyed making winter pictures in art.
What a busy month!
Class11 practised lots to put on a great show. We hope you enjoyed it. Well done to the kids for their hard work throughout. We also enjoyed performing at Bannside Church and we also had a visit from Santa! We looked at safety this month and the Fire Brigade came to talk to us about how to keep safe at home! We really enjoyed our day out at the cinema and Belmont! A well deserved treat!
All the Staff in class 11 would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
We enjoyed a visit to the café in Tescos to welcome our friend back to school. Each pupil was able to choose and order their own break in the café. They enjoyed it so much they even scraped the tasty foam topping out of the cups!!!!
Class 11 have been busy this month working on our maths topic ‘India’. We have been focusing on money this term and are enjoying using our skills to complete functional shopping tasks.
Well done to all those who attended the Banbridge Speech and Drama Festival with great success! As we now head towards our Christmas show practising is in full swing.
