A Fabulous Afternoon of Coding

Today the children in the SU were treated to an afternoon of specialist teaching from the wonderful Digital Leaders at school. We were shown how to program a micro bit with words and pictures and had a fabulous time. They were delighted with their work and we can’t wait to have our next visit. Why not explore the website at home to see what you can do?

Thank you so much to the Digital Leaders for helping to make a fabulous end to our busy week.

On Your Bike!

This week we had some visitors in our Special Unit who came to teach us all about bike safety and how to look after our bikes. We helped to put a bike together, learning the names for all the different parts. Did you know that all bicycles have a triangle shape as the main part of their frame? Have a look at one at home and see if you can spot the triangle.

The children were all given some reflective stickers too and were shown how they glow when they are given some light. We learned so many things during the afternoon but the thing we already knew was that cycling is good for our fitness and fun too, so get on your bikes!

A Trip to the Panto

What a privilege it was for the staff today who took the SU classes to watch Cinderella, the Milton Keynes pantomime. The performance was amazing – a flying coach to take Cinders to the ball, two real horses, Tess and Claudia as the ugly stepsisters and the Fairy Gokmother – what more could we want?! The children really entered into the spirit of things, shouting, singing, booing, clapping and dancing, it was such a treat.

Is it wrong to be looking forward to next year’s pantomime already?
