As part of our SQA, ‘Working with Assistive Technologies’, Room 17 have been exploring lots of different ways of using assistive technologies to give us more independence whilst carrying out different activities, and making our learning fun. We have enjoyed using switch buttons for musical activities, and playing with different toys. We have also used different switches for small appliances, such as the popcorn maker, and the hand blender which we tried to carve different pumpkins with (it’s harder than it looks!). We even used a switch for operating a hair dryer to paint with – that was good fun!
Happy New Year! We hope all our family and friends had a lovely holiday!
Before the holidays, Room 17 had lots of festive fun. We decorated our classroom, made some fun crafts to share with you at home, and played some games (it didn’t get competitive at all – promise!), and made some reindeer food and hot chocolate cones to sell at the school fayre. Phew, it was busy! We are looking forward to seeing what 2023 has to offer!
We have reached the time of year again where we say goodbye to our S6 leavers.
We are very proud of all of them and will miss them immensly. Keith and Emmeline worked with them all to make a video for their leaver’s ceremony. We hope you enjoy it.
Everyone at Orchard Brae wishes our leavers all the very best in their future endeavours. We will miss you!
