We have had a very busy term here in Room 7. We have been working on the JC2 programme and doing some work on Personal care, different ways that we can relax and recognising some of the different places in our Local Community. We have been working on Time and Money in Numeracy and we are all progressing well in these areas. We are enjoying our weekly swimming sessions in the local swimming pool and we are continuing to develop our dressing skills here. We have gone on a variety of different social outings including trips to the cinema, bowling, out for lunch and shopping trips. While on these outings we work on developing many different skills including money skills, independent living skills and road safety skills.We all love helping with jobs here in Room 7 and some of the pupils have begun doing some jobs on the school grounds independently, for example, collecting the post from the main house and delivering messages to different areas on campus. We are all looking forward to our Easter break and having a nice rest, so we can come back to school after the holidays for lots more learning and fun.
We had great fun doing an experiment to find out things that float and things that sink.
