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.
