4PC went to the Life Science Centre on Tuesday as we have been learning about space science this term. First we went on the motion ride which was about a Robot who took us on a magical trip around space, it was fun….we had to wear funny glasses to see it all in 3D.
We then went to the Planetarium to learn about the Moon and enjoy the sensory experience.
After dinner we seen a kitchen science show where Jim showed us lots of great science tricks we could do at school or home.
We finished by looking around the Museum and finding these strange guys……..
We would like to share with you some fantastic achievements made by all students in our class.
Holly has started to initiate communication with one of her peers. She gained Olivia’s attention by tapping her on the arm then she began clapping, indicating that she would like Olivia to join in, which she did. It was lovely to see the young ladies in our class enjoying social time without any facilitation from adults. Both students were recognised as ‘student of the week’ well done girls!!
This week Luke has been working hard with Paul, who teaches students with a visual impairment. He did some amazing tracking of objects, vocalising to indicate what he could see. He has also been working on an eyegaze device with Eva. Great work Luke!!
James has done some brilliant walking around school. He has walked from the class to the sensory room on several occasions with very little support. His brace, which helps him to maintain an upright position is currently under repair, which has made walking even more of a challenge!
John-Paul and Olivia participated in a very demanding sitting programme, which involved picking up bean bags from either side of their stool from the floor and throwing them into matching coloured hoops. They didn’t give up, making several attempts when they didn’t hit the hoop the first time.
w/c 13.2.17 is the final week for our Literacy topic book Room on the Broom, which the students have enjoyed listening to, interacting with props linked to the story and acting the parts of different characters. We are looking forward to starting We are going on a Bear Hunt after half term.
A huge well done to all of our students!!
Tracy and the team
