Class 2 Blog Class 2 have had a very exciting and fun filled term. We have been busy engaging with the many events that are actively happening on our school time table including Literacy week, World Book Day and a whole school St. Patricks Day Hooley via zoom. We look forward to our final term as class 2 in Lisanally Special School.
Everyone in class 2 have been working extremely hard following our return from Christmas. We are missing our friends who are learning from home and look forward until the day we can all be reunited. We are continuing to work hard through our daily timetable on subjects including literacy, numeracy, art and phonics which we all love.
Class 2 are part of the Junior Department. Our class is made up of eight pupils, five boys and three girls, all aged between four and six.
Class 2 is a welcoming environment. We provide a stimulating and structured routine where the children are encouraged to work hard and have fun along the way.
Throughout the day, we are provided with opportunities to enjoy structured play activities. Table top activities are also available every morning for the children to play with. Our social skills are developed as we sit around the break table. This is a time when we practise requesting food.
During the week there are many opportunities to participate in a variety of lessons. We have P.E. music, art, numeracy, literacy and cookery lessons.
Class 2 really enjoy art sessions. So far this year we have completed pictures for the Armagh Credit Union Art Competition, autumn collage pictures, Halloween spiders, space rockets, self-portraits and string painting. We also decorate odd socks to support anti-bullying week.
Unfortunately, this year due to Covid 19 we can’t avail of some of the wonderful activities our school can offer like the ball pool, hydrotherapy pool, library, Jo Jingles and whole junior school music sessions. We also miss getting to the school café where we used to enjoy meeting up with other classes. Hopefully normality will return very soon. We do however get out every day for our daily mile walk which we all love.
We recognise that each and every one of our pupils are unique and special and we ensure that they are valued every day. Each child has an I.E.P. (Individualized Education Plan). These plans consist of attainments for the children and are assessed every six weeks. This is to ensure that the child is progressing and that individual needs are being met.
