Latest Posts from around school…
- 1W had a lovely visit to a mosque in Bolton on Wednesday. We were greeted very warmly by everyone we met there and had a special tour round all the different areas. The children were very interested in learning about how Muslims worship and had lots of interesting questions to ask.
And, of course, they all behaved brilliantly and were a credit to our school.
Pupils in Rowan B have really enjoyed their topic work this half term.
Watch the video to see some of the work they have been doing.
- A beautiful 'Carpool Karaoke' video created by Coventry mum Becky Carless to celebrate World Down Syndrome day featuring our very own Emily!
- 2R were shocked to find out such a crime was committed in our class. We have begun researching different kinds of alarms to protect our class from any further robberies.
- Total Communication is an approach used throughout school to help children learning disabilities communicate using any mode of communication such as symbols, signing (e.g. Signalong), photographs as well as the spoken and written word, gesture and objects of reference.
Our Total Communication Media team aim to produce a series of short multimedia films based on stories, songs, rhymes and everyday situations. Each project will feature children from across school and be based on content created by the children such as artwork, animation, drama and role play, narration, dance, music and green screen filming.
We are proud to present our first production. It is based on the story "Please Don't Chat to the Bus Driver" by Shen Roddie and Jill Newton.
We’ve included a ‘making of’ sequence during the credits to share all the learning and fun that went into creating the video.
We hope you enjoy it! We’d love it if you could leave a comment and let us know what you think.
We made a wormery today for the worm we found to live in.
- We have had a fantastic afternoon listening
to 'What am I' and 'Kofi and the magic shaker'. The children touched lots of different textures and enjoyed listening to the sounds.
