New Classroom!!

New Classroom

This week we entered our new classroom! Our classroom is now much more homely, it has a mixture of furniture like sofas, a hanging chair, rocking chairs, giant bean bag cushions, high office chairs, and ‘pizza’ tables. Our classroom has helped us to feel like we are learning in a more relaxed environment. Here is what we thought when we first saw it:

‘It was worth the wait!’

‘Absolutely amazing, in fact, more than amazing!’

‘It was better than I was expecting’

‘Wooooooooooow’

‘I felt like I was in a totally different world’

‘This is different to normal classrooms’

‘I would like to live here!’

We think it will help us because:

  • We are learning to respect our belongings and look after our environment
  • We feel more relaxed and that is helping us to focus and concentrate
  • We have different spaces available for different tasks
  • We are learning skills for life like working in different spaces, the same way that adults hot desk
  • We are developing independence and flexibility before we go to high school
  • We are having more choice and responsibilities
  • It helps to make learning feel more fun

We are very happy with our new learning environment!

Independent Learning

Today we continued our skills for life, work and creativity. Everyone was busy working on different things, for example:

  • Writing a news paper article
  • Creating dance routines
  • Knitting
  • Writing drama scripts
  • Using a sewing machine
  • Role Play

C7’s Week

Numeracy and Maths – BODMAS

This week we have been learning about BODMAS and how it works. We learned that there are rules for the order that we work out a number sentence in if there are more than one operation. For example if there is adding and multiplying in the same number sentence, we need to do the multiplying first.

BODMAS stands for:

Brackets

Operations

Division

Multiplying

Adding

Subtracting

BODMAS gives us the order that we have to answer mixed number sentences in.

Here’s an example:

2 x 2 + 10 x (18 – 4)²

2 x 2 + 10 x 14²

2 x 2 + 10 x 196

4 + 1960 = 1964

  • Chess Club
  • Sewing
  • School Newspaper
  • Knitting
  • Drama
  • Running Club
  • Cooking
