CLASS 12

March 2022

In March we have been creating Spring flowers using a range of mediums.  We enjoyed working with Mount Ida Pottery to create a clay flower for our garden of hope.   We have also made flowers using other materials including paints, tissue paper, foam and chalks.  This has been the focus of our spring display.

Our topic focus in February has been all about colour.  We have been exploring colours through a range of activities such as art, tac pac and attention autism.  

Class 12   - December 2021

December has been a very busy month.   We have enjoyed completing some Christmas crafts.  Our Christmas Tac Pac was great fun and we enjoyed exploring the different textured Christmas materials along to music.

Class 12 have had another great month. They have been doing lots of money work as we launched our new Senior School Tuck Shop a few weeks ago. One of the main drivers for starting the Tuck Shop was to offer our pupils the opportunity to practice money skills in a functional and meaningful way. We have our accountant and stock-takers, as well as pupils who serve customers in the shop. Of course all of Class 12 act as quality control—especially for the chocolate! We are finding that this initiate is already proving to be very worthwhile.

Pupils have also been learning new skills through the topic of Winter. I think by the end of it the pupils will be very glad they live here and not in the Arctic with the Intuits. Pupils have had the opportunity to be scientists and to carry out a range of experiments using ice. If you have an icy path just ask Class 12 and they will tell you how to melt it!

We also had a birthday this month A big 15!
