St Lucia: Newsletter

It is the end of an extremely busy and eventful term! St Lucia class have now settled into their new surroundings and become familiar with a secondary timetable. We hope Mrs McCue will be back with us soon.

This term we have particularly enjoyed our English focus books; ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ and ‘A Christmas Carol’. We described the characters, learned about what life was like when Charles Dickens was alive, and the pupils especially enjoyed role playing with puppets!

We have covered a range of topics in maths including; addition and subtraction, measuring using length, 3D shapes, fractions and collecting and presenting data. The pupils enjoyed using a range of resources to support their learning.

In history we have learned about Roman Britain. The pupils have been enthusiastic about the topic and were especially interested in learning about the Celts, Roman army and Hadrian’s Wall.

The pupils have continued to develop their social and emotional skills with the support of staff, other professionals, and their peers. We even participated in ‘World Mental Health Day’, as part of a whole school awareness day.

Our class took part in a TASC day to plan and create a stall for the Christmas Fair. We worked with Belize class to design and make Christmas cards and bookmarks to sell, as well as running a ‘Hit Santa’s Sleigh’ competition. The day was a huge success and we had many happy customers. Thank you all for your support!

Mr Rankin and Mrs Turnbull would like to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and we look forward to seeing you again in the New Year.
