Class 7

Class 7 Update - October 2018

Class 7 are loving this mild Autumn weather. This month we’ve taken our parachute outside and used the Autumn leaves in our PE lessons. Everyone could anticipate when they were going to be showered by crunchy leaves!!

What better ingredients to explore and cook with in Autumn than warming spicy sauces. In October class 7 have enjoyed chilli, curry and sweet and sour sauces. Cookery is always a big hit every Friday because we get to eat dinner twice!!

We love getting out and about around the school. This month pupils in class 7 join their friends in the rest of the school for Clubs each Wednesday afternoon—’The Chill Zone’, ‘Out and About’, ‘Stage Struck Drama Group ‘, ‘Get up and Go’ or ‘Cookery Club’.

Class 7 Update - September 2018

We are delighted to welcome one new pupil and two new staff (‘Big Chloe’ and Sharon) to Class 7.

The pupils in class 7 have been showing off their skills in assessment month. It’s been a great way for our new staff to get to know each pupil’s abilities and needs. Our new topics are ‘Sensational Stories’ and ‘Autumn’. You can tell by the photos it’s been great start to the new school year!

Class 7 Update - June 2018

What a busy June Class 7 have had! We loved our World Cup themed Sports Day at the Leisure Centre and were happy to celebrate with two of our pupils when they won awards at Prize Giving Day. In class, we’ve been learning more about Summer by having water play and making summer desserts—our very favourite was Eton Mess. The weather wasn't kind to us on our outing day but we made the most of it and went to Oxford Island where we could shelter below the trees during the showers. Bowling with our friends in the rest of the senior school finished the year with a bang!

Wishing you all a happy and healthy summer holidays - hope the sun keeps shining!

Class 7 Update - April 2018

There’s nothing more that Class 7 love than getting out and about! Luckily the sun has been shining on us this month and everyone has enjoyed being outside. Two of our pupils celebrated their 16th birthdays this month and we all enjoyed celebrating with them. Back in the classroom we have started exploring and learning about this term’s topic ‘Under the Sea’.

Class 7 Update - March 2018

This month in class 7 we have been showing off our skills during the official opening where we got to showcase the newly built ICT hub. We loved it when the parents joined in for parachute games during the open morning. But at the end of the day we still like to play with all our favourite toys although Nikki is a meanie because she makes us work for them!!

Class 7 November 2017 Update

A busy month in class 7! The pupils have been working hard at their IEP targets and are making great progress.

They love when it’s their turn to go to TESCO with their friends in Class 6 - sometimes the rest of us even get a treat when they come back!

They’ve been helping to make some comfort food dishes in sensory cookery. The spicy ones are a definite favorite.

Their very favorite thing this month was using a switch to blow paint for the ‘naughty elephant’ display - I think they liked the warm air from the hairdryer more than the paint??

Class 7 - October 2017 update

Class 7 have been learning through the topic of ‘The Circus’. We’ve been working hard in art to decorate the room just like a big top!

Each Friday we have taken a musical trip to The Circus too - while working out in PE.

One of our favourite ICT lessons this month has been getting to control the hairdryer for our naughty circus elephant pictures.

We’ve all loved getting out and about in October too - we’ve had great fun exploring!

Class 7 - September 2017 Update

What a great start to the new school year! September has been assessment month. We have packed in as many activities as possible so we can get to know Aimee, Rachel, Nicola, Aleena, Chloe, Josh and Logan. The staff team have been watching carefully to see how our pupils respond to whatever is offered to them. This will help inform us so we can make individual plans for the incoming school year. We are confident it will be full of fun, learning and discovery!
