Spring Learning

We have had a really busy, really varied week in school - As part of our Buddies program, Claire helped the children in class 2 in their games and turn taking session - she enjoyed playing the games too - as well as helping the children to have their snack.

Some of the boys from S5 went along to E5 to some of our youngest Explorer boys to act as their buddies - it was a wonderful morning, the boys took part in a parachute icebreaker and then practised their throwing, catching and kicking skills - the little ones can’t wait for next week - and their teacher Halima thanked our older boy buddies, as they helped even more by moving all the outdoor toys to the side.

In the sports lunchtime club, students played football and also had a go at table tennis.

S4 enjoyed a community visit to the park - everyone had a lovely time. They explored the new playground equipment that has recently been added to Ribchester Park and then ate their snacks in the gazebo. They had fun making a kite fly before heading back to school on the bus and the sun actually shone for them!

S5 and S8 had a successful first social group cafe and all of the pupils involved really seemed to enjoy it - it’s going to be a regular event from now on.

And after school on Wednesday, staff took part in a training session about how we all need feel good chemicals - dopamine - and what we can do to naturally make our bodies create and give us more of them. This involved doing yoga, team work activities and being creative making 3-d feelings boards - as you can see in the image! It might look like they are just lying down, but actually in the yoga session, staff were experiencing how to think about how yoga can support children to regulate and be ready to learn - everyone enjoyed the session and left feeling inspired and relaxed.

We hope everyone has a lovely bank holiday weekend, and we hope the sun is shining!
