In work related learning this week students found out about the importance of packaging items for posting. They were given some plates, packaging materials and boxes and asked to package them, these packages were then taken by Bracken Hill Postal Service (Ms Lane and Mrs Millward) who were very clumsy with them. Mrs Askam then unwrapped her deliveries to see how many had survived.
In Travel Training we went into the carpark where we practised crossing the road, some students acted as cars whilst others decided if it was safe to cross.
In DT we have been making flapjack in order to use our measuring skills.
In English we have been practising our spelling skills with a game of scrabble.
At the end of the week we had the sensory projector out, the students loved this new experience at the end of the week.
In maths this week we have been continuing to practice our money work by pretending to shop.
In English this week we continued to look at instructions, we wrote our own instructions and then followed them exactly to make pizza.
Students have been learning all about instructions, they have ordered them and then followed their own instructions to make toast.
In maths we have started our work on money with learning about how to identify and order coins by value.
As part of our English work on instructions we have been learning to follow instructions by playing 'Simon Says'.
As part of work related learning the class found out about what it is like to work as a team by wrapping a member of their team up as a mummy using toilet paper. Mrs Rawson particularly enjoyed the end of her first week in school - she made a great mummy!
