Forest Schools Day

class6 on: Class 6

Last week Class 6 had a fantastic day in the forest!  We spent the day at Elmswell Farm with Cindy from Forest Schools.  We learnt how to build a shelter, make and light a fire, and even whittled sticks to toast marshmallows on the fire!  We really loved being outdoors, exploring the forest and the fields on the farm, and are looking forward to another Forest Day in the Autumn.

Disport Trials

class6 on: Class 6

On Thursday Class 6 (and nearly the whole school!) went to Costello Stadium in Hull for the annual Disport Athletics Trials.  Each pupil took part in a track and a field event, such as running, walking, wheelchair slalom, ball throw, javelin, and long jump. We all had a great time, some of us came first or second in our events and are hoping we got through to the finals next month in Leeds. 

Here's Owen T doing the wheelchair slalom!

A visit to The Deep

class6 on: Class 6

Just before the Easter holidays, Class 6 went on an educational visit to The Deep.  First of all we did a workshop which involved a science experiment making SLIME!  We learnt about how animals make slime too.  After a posh picnic for lunch we had a good look round The Deep and saw lots of animals including penguins, sharks, turtles and lots of different fish.  We had a great day and learnt lots.

Rosedale Residential Trip, March 2019

class6 on: Class 6

Six pupils from Class 6 had a fantastic time last week at Rosedale Abbey.  We spent 3 days working hard on our Lifeskills such as cooking, cleaning and shopping, trying to be as independent as possible.  We made our own beds, breakfasts and packed lunches, and worked in teams to cook evening meals.  We also had lots of fun out in the North Yorkshire countryside.  We had a grand day out to Danby Visitors Centre, even enjoying ice creams in the sunshine!  Our evening activities included playing bingo and watching The Greatest Showman.  A great time was had by all!

While the teacher is away the students will play!

class6 on: Class 6

Whilst half of the class embarked on 3 days of functional independence training deep in the Yorkshire Moors....... The remaining half got messy, creative and experimental! From exploding coke bottles and mod-rock madness, to getting their bake on, the class 6 home team certainly kept themselves occupied!
