Welcome to SSC 😊
Our class trip to the Adventure Farm.
We had a great time at the Adventure farm this week. We were all very excited to travel by minibus and talk about everything we could see on the way! When we arrived we got straight onto seeing the animals and learnt how to feed the Alpacas and sheep, we even took the sheep for a walk. We saw chickens, hens, pigs and donkeys before exploring the outdoor forest area - here we could play in the water, build and dig, create in the mud kitchen or simply enjoy the quiet of the forest in the large hammock. At lunch we sat around the campfire and were taught how to toast marshmallows safely - we even got to have hot chocolate too. We finished off the afternoon in the adventure park and many of us felt brave enough to try the zipwire (even Mrs Tucker!)
The Seaside and Holidays
This final half term of the year, we will be exploring our Seaside/Holiday topic. The children will have opportunities to find out and explore facts and information about other countries, role play going on holiday on different types of transports and also share where they have been on their holidays. There will be lots of other exciting activities happening during this final half term, so watch this space for photographs of what we have been up to
The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebrations
We had a fabulous end to the half term to celebrate 70 years on the throne for Queen Elizabeth II. Throughout the week we leant participated in lots of activities and learnt new facts about the Queen, including our favourite one, that her favourite Corgi's name is Susan!
We came dressed to impress and after lunch we gathered on the field for a 'street style' party.
The children have all made some very special memories that will last a lifetime.
We are enjoying learning about minibeasts in our environment and the different places in the world they come from. We have looked in our own forest school area to find some minibeast homes. During this half term we have learnt lots of interesting facts about minibeasts and also been looking at different lifecycles of creatures such as caterpillars and ladybirds.
Science week 2022.
The children have enjoyed Science week in school, in class as part of Down Syndrome Awareness Day, we have planted Sunflower seeds with the children linked in with the Science theme 'Growth.' The children took great care when planting and learning about how we care for our seeds and what we need to help them grow. We also explored, how like people they will grow at different rates and shapes and sizes.
Lunar New Year
The children really enjoyed learning about Lunar New Year and how it is celebrated by many people around the World, We found out lots of interesting facts and talked about lucky colours, special clothes and traditions. We also took part in various activities, we made Chinese Lanterns, found out which animals were in the race and which Zodiac animals we are. We also participated in some Chinese ribbon dancing and to finish off a we had a banquet of Chinese food.
Transport and Journeys
This half term we have been busy learning about different modes of transport and journeys. The children all really enjoyed this topic and sharing and discussing different transport they have been on, their favourite transport and also designing and making models of various transport in D & T.

We have had a very busy start to the first half term in SSC and we are so pleased with the children and how they have settled into school. This half term we have been learning about Ourselves, our families, embracing our uniqueness and looking at different emotions. We are particularly enjoying the Colour Monster activities 😊
