Term 4 Newsletter

Term 4 was a great term for SG2, with all students continuing to make excellent progress! We were delighted to welcome 2 new students to our class and hope that they will make friends with their new class mates. Our 2 new students have settled in well and they are already making great progress.

In literacy and numeracy, all students have continued to work on their fine motor skills. 2 of our students are now able to write their names independently, which is a huge achievement! In numeracy we have been practicing how to use money. All students “buy” items using “coins”. Some of our students are able to use a variety of coins and a few are even able to add up coins to make a value! We will continue to work on using money during term 5.

In Art and Science we have been looking at plants and students are able to identify what a plant needs to grow. This will really help them this term as we will be hopefully spending lots of time out in the sensory garden and allotment area, planting and weeding.

We are starting a new topic this term focussing on habitats and will look at some of the different habitats that can be found at school and some of the wildlife we have at nexus. We will also be continuing with our work based learning and food technology. All students have been practicing making sandwiches and will now look at making a meal, including a sandwich. They will also begin to choose different fillings for their sandwiches.

This term SG2 will be the spotlight class for Nexus and we look forward to sharing all of the students great work with you.
