As you know Sherewood and Rufford class are planning to go on a residential at Whitemoor Lakes in April. As many of our students were a little anxious about their firth coming adventure we decided to go and visit to Whitemoor Lakes for the day. So on Wednesday, 29th of December we braved the cold to see where we are going to be staying. I think it really helped the children to see where they are going to be sleeping and eating. They were also able to choose some of the activities they might want to do.
Just a little reminder that parents can pay in installments for this trip so that it makes the overall payment a little easier.
On Monday , 16th October Bracken Hill School celebrated a Whole school Hinduism Day. As part of this celebration Sherwood class went to visit the Hindu Temple in Beeston. We received a warm welcome from the people at the Temple. They showed us around and explained the importance of all the Hindu statues and symbols. We were able to watch a priest perform a Hindu Service and we were then treated to a lovely Indian lunch.
Week beginning 25.09.17
Over the last few weeks, Sherwood class have been practicing independent travel training. This involved learning how to cross roads, using different types of crossings, using a bus with support and finding certain products in shops.
The children really enjoy this lesson and learn lots of life skills such as shopping, following instructions and keeping safe.
As part of the school Buddhist day Sherwood class visited the Buddhist centre in Nottingham. The class travelled there on public transport using all the skills they have learnt in TITAN. They were able to follow directions using road signs and directions from the public. The class learnt how Buddhism came about through a story. They also took part in meditation.
Some of the student sat their GCSE'S in Math's and English.
