We have just moved on to our Himalayas project under our Asia topic and have been excited to learn all about mountain life! We have spent time reading and researching, to produce a piece of creative writing in the form of a travel blog. All the children worked really hard and have produced some fantastic pieces of work. We thought it would be fun to adventure out in to the local countryside to try map reading and orienteering - we might not be ready to climb Mount Everest yet, but we did have lots of fun in the outdoors.
We are also working hard in maths, interpreting different types of data and graphs. All the children have progressed well, meeting their targets!
On Tuesday we took a trip to The Tropical Butterfly House, Wildlife and Falconry Centre in Sheffield. Group staff were so proud of the mature and polite behaviour shown by the children when they were out in the community. The outing allowed the children to build on their SEMH development, as well as researching Asian animals and their habitats, for our topic work.
