Week 3

Zdravstvuyte....Hello from Russia!

This week we welcomed Kelly to our team. Aieshar and Gabby are really pleased to have another girl joining us!!




Cheers Kelly and welcome to the Afternoon Programme!!

This term we are practising to get confidence to perform in front of others.

We started this week by doing some role playing.

We were given different types of situations that could occur in our life. 

 What would we do to get help?

Aaron speaking to the police after dialing 111....

Oh No!! Ryan has collapsed...what should we do?????

A policeman arrives on the scene to help!




Kelly ringing the fire brigade....

We wanted to come up with some words that describe us and the Afternoon Programme....this is what we came up with.        

Awesome, fantastic, terrific, excellent, responsible, nice, okay, outstanding, nurturing is what we came up with for Afternoon.

 Perfect, respect, one and only, gorgeous, reliable, amazing, mindful, mega and excited were the words we chose for Programme.


On Wednesday Gayle left all the work that we were going to do at home.!

Mmmm....what were we to do?

We had a games and dancing afternoon. It was so cool...we have heaps of fun.

We had so much fun that we asked Gayle could she leave our work at home again another day!!!!!


You would have loved being with us this afternoon....Jasiah chose chocolate, banana muffins for us to bake.

They were just scrumptious..we wanted more!!

Term 3 Week 2

Min-ga-la-ba....Greetings from Burma/Myanmar

This week we celebrated Aieshar's 12th birthday.

Happy Birthday Aieshar!


On Tuesday we put on our art shirts and started to complete our rock art.
Two people in our team commented on how lovely and peaceful it was doing this activity.

We haven't all completed them yet but here is some of the work that we have done......










                                                What do you think?

                                                    They are very cool aren't they?
                                   We are all extremely happy with what we have produced.

From rock art we went onto drawing a portrait of ourselves. We had turns at looking in the mirror and describing our features and then it was down to work...artists work!

They are all up on the wall in Learning Support...pop in to see them when you are passing by....we think that you will be impressed!!

Desharne chose apple crumble for us all to cook today. 

What a shame you couldn't be with us...it was just scrummy!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

We are back!!

Welcome back everyone...it is good to  be back despite the dreadful rain that is with us again today.
We are hoping that it will go away before the weekend so that we can get outside and play.

Did you all have an enjoyable holiday?

This term is all about the 'Arts' in our community.

We are going to be participating in a variety of 'arty' activities.

Today we discussed what type of dance /movement that we would like to participate in.

We came up with....break dancing, jump jam, hip hop, irish jigs...we might get Mrs Coleman to teach us the Irish Jig as she is very good at it!!!    So watch this space!!!!

To get us into an 'arty' mood we painted rocks. Gayle went and collected them from Birdlings Flat.
Some were quite big in size while others were flat and thin. They were all very smooth when we touched them.

We chose our rocks then got busy and made a plan of what we were going to paint on them.
It was quite easy to come up with a design.

We had photos of rocks that had been painted by people. Some of the art on them was just amazing.

After completing our plan we put the first coat of paint on them.

Some of us are going to use a vivid to finish them off while the rest of us will use paint.


Thinking about what design we will choose....











Creation number two on it's way....






After a lot of thought we have all chosen what we would like to cook / bake for this term.

First up was Jacob's choice....chocolate cake.

The dry ingredients...

Adding the water...

A teaspoon of vanilla essence please...

Now we need five tablespoons of oil....

You always have to grease the tin....





The final product.....light, fluffy and delicious!!!

Please keep warm and dry everyone and be careful out on the roads!!
