This week we have been learning about the Romans, cooking Chinese food, making mud men, studying famous artists and boxing! Varied and engaged learning that the children get so much out of.
We hope you have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend and look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday.
Ravens class at St Luke's, with the help of Mason, made mud men during their horticulture class. The students went on a forage walk to collect natural materials to use in creating a masterpiece. They mixed mud and water together to make a sticky mixture then used a collection of stones, twigs, grass and feathers to decorate. We think they have done a wonderful job!
Florence Class from The Collett visited Warriors Amateur Boxing Club this week. The young people had a fantastic time using all the equipment and learning the basic skills of the sport.
WORK RELATED SKILLS
The young people at Forest House Education Centre had an experience of what to expect in the real world of work this week.
They were put through challenges in the classroom to observe how well they coped and how they worked individually and in groups to problem solve. There was some good team work going on and noticeable leaders amongst them.
Finches class at St Luke's have been learning about the Romans this week. They discussed the life of Romans and what the Romans have brought to us. They talked about Roman Empire, this week focusing on what their army wore and how they were so powerful. They spent the afternoon making Roman shields, and then recreated the battle formation which gave the soldiers a protective shell.
