We created a number of forts to keep ourselves safe from the weather this week. We all chose which material we wanted to make it out of and then tested it by blowing REALLY hard on it.
Some of our forts fell down, so we had to improve them!
‘Wow’, Owen Thorpe made it to the Top 5 for Worthing in the Project Oggbots Design-A-Robot Competition. A massive well done Owen.
As a competition entry school all our children can claim 10% off their tickets for Project: Oggbots using the code ROBOTCOMP.
Oggbots is on at the Jubiliee Library, Brighton from the 4th June to the 5th June 2016
Lemurs have been looking at simulators this week and how we can control and interact with different things to get a desired response. It may just look like we are playing games, but like all good lemurs we are really hard at work (playing and having fun)!
Seahorse class took part in a ‘Sponsored Splash’ for Sports Relief. The children used their arms and legs to splash as much as they could in their swimming session. The rest of the class were taking part in a sponsored ‘Step’ and a sponsored ‘Stretch’ in class and in the playground.
Other classes in the school took part in a mini mile and assault course in the hall to raise as much money for Sports Relief as possible.
Please remember to send your sponsor forms to school.
A big thank you to the students of Oakgrove College for helping with the events.
Parrot class had a fantastic trip to the library for World Book Day. We listened to different stories and joined in rhymes and songs. We also got to explore the library and count how many computers we could see. Back at school we had a Reading Buddies session with Lemur class where we listened to and acted out the story of Handa’s surprise.
William is working on his cognitive target to use his body to act on the environment : Here he is loving drumming in the new sensory play area!!
Class Selfie with the Elephant
Leopard class had a lovely trip to Drusillas this week. We got to meet a snake, cockroach, bearded dragon and fat tailed gerbils! All the children were really gentle and careful when handling the animals. We went around and saw lots of other things, especially liking the monkeys and the penguins.
At the end of the day we all had a ride on the Thomas train!
Good day all round!
Mashrafi smelling herbs
This week in Seahorse class we have been getting back into our classroom routines after the holidays. We had a birthday party on Tuesday afternoon for Sara who came in to her “Surprise”. We are continuing to focus on our Creation Story and the staff were keen to see if the children had remembered their favorite parts. On each day God created different things and we have different objects, sounds, and smells to explore depending on what God created. So on day 1 he created day and night, on day 2 he created the land and the sea. The children loved it and they did remember their favorite parts of the story and Mashrafi remembered to count down to turning the lights off to make the classroom dark.
We have had another busy week in Lemurs. We have planted seeds to see what they need to enable them to grow, explored new techniques in art, celebrated Chinese New Years and to top it all off we have learnt to fence. Be careful of Lemurs class now, we are armed with knowledge and swords!
