Over the last few weeks Rufford class have moved into their new classroom and have settled well, they have gotten use to the new routines.
In science we have been looking at changes of state and mixtures, students have completed practical work to find out which substances freeze at certain temperatures, if substances dissolve and how we can separate substances from a mixture.
In English we have finished the topic on Super Heroes and have moved onto reading 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas' by John Boyne, the students have enjoyed reading the first few chapters and have made some good predictions about what they think that the book is about at different points. Can I ask if you have read the book or seen the film that you do not 'let the cat out of the bag' about how the boo ends.
Over the last few weeks in maths we have been looking at sorting, students have sorted objects depending on criteria such as colour, shape and size.
Rufford class have settled in well to their new routines and are making great progress with new friendships and the curriculum.
In English we have been looking at superheroes and have been studying the film superman, we have used a range of descriptive words to describe superman and Clark Kent.
In Maths we have being completing work on number and have been working on sequencing numbers, counting and addition.
In science we have looked at vertebrates and invertebrates and have moved onto a new topic 'Solids and Liquids' the class are particularly enjoying the practical work.
In computing we have started a unit where we are identifying different types of computers and looking at the parts of a desktop and what each of the parts does.
On a Friday the class takes part in work related learning and we have looked at signs and what these are used, practised our money skills and looked at jobs that could be available to us when we leave school; the class had great fun guessing their job in a game where they had a job stuck to their head and had to ask questions to find out what it was. We have also been to a jobs fair in Kirkby so we could ask questions about different jobs.
