Class 10 have been working very hard. In Maths, we continue to work on naming and recognising all UK coins and adding coins together.
In English, we have been trying hard to use prepositions in full sentences and we are doing so well.
We have been learning about all the different kinds of Houses and Homes as part of our topic and the many materials that furniture and appliances around the home are made from.
We have enjoyed exploring the new items in our Happiness Boxes.
Something else that has put a smile on our faces has been the many buns we have had to make, and of course sample, in order to perfect them for the Lisanally Bake Off! Definitely a few showstoppers amongst them!
Class 10 are enjoying working on our current topic "Where in the World?" We have been exploring Ireland, France, Italy, USA and China. In addition to learning about each country's location on the globe, their language, customs and discovering famous landmarks, we have also tasted some of their specialities, including French breads, an Italian pasta dish, an American hotdog and Chinese noodles. In Art, we have created a bright display in our classroom of the flags from different countries and some beautiful paintings of snowy, Winter scenes. In Maths, we are learning to name and recognise all UK coins and are working well at sorting and adding coins together. In English, we enjoyed a Winter sensory story and we have been working on prepositions which we are starting to use correctly to help us describe where something or someone is. As well as all that, we are getting out for our daily mile walk, weather permitting of course, and are keeping our bodies and minds active with a variety of PE workouts and yoga.
Class 10 have been very busy over the past few weeks. We were filming our Christmas video which we hope you will enjoy watching.
We have made some very nice Christmas decorations and had great fun with the ‘Play Day’ activities as you can see! In fact, we have been so busy that we thought we deserved a few treats at break time… we made waffles and beans, buns and top hats in Home Economics.
On behalf of everyone in Class 10, we would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
We are a Nurture Room in the Secondary Department of Lisanally School. There are 5 pupils in our class all aged between 13 and 14. As a Nurture Classroom, we have a kitchen area where the pupils practise making a snack, a living room area with soft seating where we can relax once we have completed our work which takes place in another designated area of the classroom. This is also where we enjoy a reflexology session.
So far this term we are enjoying getting out every morning for our daily mile walk. In Art, we have completed some very nice pieces of work for wall displays. For Home Economics, we have picked apples from our very own trees and have practised our peeling and cutting skills and made apple tarts and crumbles. We have just finished our class novel “Esio Trot” by Roald Dahl which we all enjoyed. We have also been busy doing horticulture; weeding raised beds and flower beds in the sensory garden and raking leaves.
