As part of their TITAN independent travel training, Wollaton students have been to Mansfield Bus Station this week. First, they had to follow signs to get to the station. Once there, they had to find out which of the numerous buses would take them home. Some asked at the information desk, some looked for timetables and some scanned the notice boards at the bays. Next time, we'll find and catch a bus to take us back to college.
Week beginning 23.4.18
This week, Wollaton students have been busy preparing for their upcoming Functional Skills exams. They are working so hard and I am very proud of all the effort and dedication they are putting into their exam practice. I am sure it will pay off!
Week beginning 26.3.18
As part of our Sport Relief activities, Wollaton class set ourselves the target of taking 6000 steps each in one school day, not counting dinner time.
We jogged on the spot in the classroom, ran in the courtyard, walked in the streets around college and then went for a final jog around the football pitch to complete the challenge. We made it to 6500 steps, and I think we could even have done more.
Well done everyone!
Week beginning 12.3.18
On Wednesday, Wollaton students embarked on a reading challenge/treasure hunt. They had to read clues, work out what they meant and follow them to the next clue in a chase that took them all over college. This required team work and perseverance, but it was also good fun!
Week beginning 26.2.18
As part of our World Book Day celebrations, students were given the challenge of writing an 'Extremely Short Story' using only 10 words. It's harder than you think! Have a look at our stories and then you could have a go yourself!
Week beginning 12.2.18
The whole of Bracken Hill College celebrated Friendship Day this week. Students created role plays around the themes of 'Bullying' and 'Difference' and practised valuable social skills playing board games. They explored different ways of asking for help and sharing equipment.
Week beginning 5.2.18
We have been very lucky to receive expert coaching in Table Cricket over the last few weeks and now really enjoy playing this game together as a class.
Safer Internet Day 6.2.18
In order to promote safer conduct of our students when using the internet, we explored different types of attention and discussed what we would do in a variety of situations to keep ourselves safe when live streaming or using social media.
Week beginning 29.1.18
Our new Enterprise project has really taken off this week. After being given £10 to work with, Wollaton students decided to make soup and sell it to school staff. All our lessons revolved around soup over the last couple of weeks: we made adverts, wrote shopping lists and emails in English, created spreadsheets and posters in Computing, worked out costs and profit in Maths and formulated a business plan in our ASDAN lessons. Now it's cooking, cooking, cooking to keep up with demand. Let's hope the orders keep coming in!
Week beginning 30.10.17
Students made up their own stories based on 'Don't let the Pigeon drive the bus' and acted them out.
James is our Star of the Week for doing more things for himself.
Week beginning 16.10.17
We celebrated Hindu Day this week by attending a workshop and visiting a Hindu Temple in Nottingham. We also learned how Hindus celebrate Rakhi, the festival of sibling love, and we had a go at writing our names in Sanskrit.
Week beginning 9.10.17
Wollaton class went to Kingsway Park for some outdoor maths this week, searching for items to weigh, measure and compare.
Our Star of the Week is Chelsie for making great efforts to work more independently.
Week beginning 17.7.17
After having a go at making windmills, we went to have a look at Green's Mill in Nottingham. Even though it wasn't windy enough for the mill to work, we learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed our trip.
Week beginning 10.7.17
Have a look at the car washing group's latest practice effort! I think we're nearly ready to take bookings for our brand new car cleaning mini-enterprise...
