Fun in the sun!
Spring has definitely sprung and our plants have grown a lot! We have also started to get out in the good weather and use our different gardens more.
On 20th May and here are some of us trying out the different cycles that they brought. Each class took in turns at having a go on the bikes.
Don Valley Music Festival
You can see below our choir from red class and sixth form performing at St Jude’s Church, Hexthorpe at the Special Schools Music Festival!
We sang ‘Shotgun’ by George Ezra and ‘This is Me’ from ‘The Greatest Showman’. The judge said he loved our enthusiasm, singing and instrumental playing! We loved performing too and, of course we watched choirs from the other Special Schools perform too! It was a lovely morning and we came back with a certificate (the Festival is non-competitive). Music really does connect people in a very special way!
Its growing time!
We are looking forward to watching our seeds and plants grow, and we will scientifically monitor the sensory garden as it changes too!
We might even manage to grow some of our own salad ingredients-watch this space!
Camille and the Sunflowers
Red class have been learning about seeds and growing this half-term and we have been out and about in the sensory garden, measuring growth and changes to our new spring plants.
This book was fascinating and we learned about the work of the artist, Vincent Van Gogh! We even produced our own version of his famous sunflowers picture! We all worked together on this as a class- it was divided into quarters, then re-assembled when each part was complete!
We learned about recycling and we produced a number of pieces of art. We made a castle (inspired by Conisbrough Castle), and we produced our own aliens made using recycled toilet roll holders! We are now confident recyclers and are heading for your bins!
