Room 2 pupils all enjoy learning at Orchard Brae School – look at the happy smiling faces we’ve managed to capture on camera. We’ve included evidence of our pupils achieving some of their targets as well as planned learning activities.
Room 2 pupils enjoy working collaboratively as our photos show. Look at the pupils’ independent skills, their level of engagement – all actively participating with very little support and their clear enjoyment of learning though our Three Little Pigs story. They have also been having fun with Bucket Time activities on a Friday… as we all know, having fun is very important!
This week Room 2 had the best dance class yet with Katie and her dance assistant. Our pupils showed interest during it, with all pupils participating actively at times and some pupils consolidating learning from previous classes, particularly during the cool down. Most importantly everyone, including the adults, had fun.
Throughout the day, every day, our pupils in Rm 2 are developing their independence skills – these photos show them developing their skills with very little or no prompting from an adult.
Rm 2 had the best morning when we spontaneously adapted our timetable to have fun in the snow. We wrapped up warmly, gathered the sledges from the shed, played together and had fun.
Orchard Brae Advent Calendar: Day 11
Welcome back for another festive treat. Today, join the pupils and staff from Room 2 as they share their school day with you.
Pupils in Room 2 have been very busy and having lots of fun while learning!
They have been working on developing their numbers skills, as well as learning about shapes and colours.
They have also been working very hard on their communication and fine motor skills.
It looks like everyone has had fun learning in Room 2!
On a Tuesday afternoons, Room 2 pupils have been learning how to participate and engage in relaxation sessions as part of promoting their Health and Wellbeing.
During these sessions, we have explored using a range of activities and equipment to see which we prefer to help us relax.
This has included pulling the class blinds down and using sensory lights and blankets to change the lighting, yoga mats and PE mats to change the sensations of what we are sitting and lying on, and there is also relaxing music and imagery on our interactive board.
Some of our pupils have also enjoyed having a hand massage or a leg massage while others enjoyed the opportunity to just be on their own to help them calm and relax.
Pupils in Room 2 have enjoyed the first two weeks back to school, reuniting with some familiar faces and welcoming a few new ones too!
Here are some of the fun things they have been up to:
- Exploring how to move their body in both PE and class using lots of different pieces of equipment.
- Engaging well on their tasks and demonstrating great interest in what everyone else is doing!
Pupils (and staff!) in Room 2 had a lot of fun painting feet and making footprints on paper. All our pupils showed interest in the activity and then actively engaged, focussing their attention as they placed their feet on the paper. A couple of pupils decided to slide along and one pupil ran along the paper. We discovered that there are few tickly feet in our class!
