Class 2 are part of the Junior Department. Our class is made up of 7 boys.
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 times when we are out and around the school. We have joint P.E. lessons with Class 1 twice a week. We have fun in the ball pool twice a week and we love our turn in the hydro pool. We enjoy our music and percussion sessions with the rest of the junior department on a weekly basis. We attend the school library once a week where we really enjoy looking at all the different books and listening to stories. Jo Jingles comes to visit us once a month and we love Jo and Jennifer. We have great fun singing, dancing and playing the different instruments.
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.
We really enjoy when others come to visit our school. So far this year we have had visits from an American Choir, the Fire Service and the West Midlands Theatre Group who performed ‘The Bluebird’. We have also had two special visitors to our school, Ms Long, the Chief Executive of the Education Authority and Ms Strollery, from the Nurture Programme. During their visit we were in the library listening to our sensory story ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’. What fun we had that day looking through the long grass and getting wet going through the river. We found a big bear hiding in a cave. Wow what an adventure!!!
We recognise that each and every one of our pupils are unique and special and we ensure that they are valued everyday. 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.
