the school where excellence meets opportunity

Hi Everyone,

Its hard to believe but here we are about to go in to Term 6!

Term 5 went flying past and we were lucky to have had some lovely weather and some fun days.

A lot of the children really enjoyed going to the African Drumming workshop and playing on all the different instruments.  We all had fun outside in the sun at the tea party to celebrate the royal wedding, the children enjoyed their cakes and it was a good opportunity for Scott, our new Head teacher to meet everyone.

In term 5 the pupils have all been working hard with their communication skills, developing their PECS, Makaton, switch work and verbal skills.

We have been doing our stage 2 Attention Everyone sessions every day and the pupils attention skills have really developed, we are so pleased with how much progress we have seen since we have been doing these sessions.

We will continue these in Term 6 with some new messy activities added in!

The topic for Term 6 is Summer and we will be reading 2 new stories about going on a picnic and going to the beach, this is going to be the focus of all our art and creative activities this term. So we will be having lots of fun with sand and water and going outside on the field.

We are looking forward to another fun packed term and lots of good weather.

Please can you remember to send in sun cream and a hat every day. Also spare clothes please as we will be doing water play and going outside if the weather is good. Many Thanks.

If there is anything you would like at home or any symbols you would like please let me know, you can email me or write a note in the communication diary.

Lorna and all in P1.
