Oak class have settled well into their new classroom and we have been enjoying a variety of lessons and experiences together.
In maths we have been looking at money and practising these skills by going out into the community to buy ingredients for our cookery activities.
In English we have been reading "James and the Giant Peach" and doing lots of activities based around the book and film. We have been testing our senses and experimenting with the magic beans! Some of us were even brave enough to taste them!
This term we are also looking at "Developing Community Participation Skills" Our class have set up our own "Welcombe Hill Rocks" which is a take on "Stratford Rocks" facebook group. The class have designed and painted their own rocks which they have hidden around the school and Stratford. The students and community can find our rocks and then rehide them for others to find.
Since January we have also been participating in Pilates and Mindfulness which takes part in our new Immersive room. We set the room like a pilates studio with calming music to help us relax and focus while we do some gently stretching.
On Wednesday's we have been visiting Stratford Library as our "using a community facility over a period of time" We have been looking at how they use the library, whats available to them and how to find and take out books.
