We had a competitive team learning challenge which consolidated our learning. Everybody managed very well and worked co-operatively on this task.
We discussed bullying; what it is and how people feel when they are bullied. Our class task, set by Mrs Williams for our feedback assembly, was to design posters showing how we feel when we are bullied. Each poster looked very different but they all had the same message of how we feel when we are bullied.
I would like to share with you the promotional video that was made during the East of Scotland Paralympic Experience Event that Max and Jonathan attended in March. They are both in the video. This video promotes the event and helps break down barriers for pupils, parents, and explains what the event is about. Jonathan and Max had a brilliant day taking part in a variety of sports and making new friends.
On Wednesday the class we enjoyed learning football skills. We learned how to control the ball with different parts of our feet and were shown a few tricks to move the ball away from our opponents. To end the session, we played a few 3 aside football matches.
To end our Kenya topic, the children made their own individual 3D Safari scenes which reflected much of what they had learned about Kenyan National Parks. They were very creative and very detailed. Mrs Williams visited our classroom to see the magnificent work and to hear each person talk about what was happening in their scene. Mrs Williams then told us all about the Safari trips she had made in South Africa and the amazing things she did and saw on them!
