Last week we started learning about time. We have been learning the 7 days of the week and the order of these. We enjoyed hearing the story “The King’s Socks” and designed and made our own clocks which shared an interest or love of ours. Our completed clocks look fabulous and the King would have loved our designs! Photos to follow.
We have also begun co-operative learning groups, which will continue to develop our team work and social skills through a range of activities as well as developing our academic skills and learning through this group work approach. This week saw us establishing our groups and creating a group identity through co-operative work to select a group name and to create a poster to share this.
We enjoyed our first of four weeks at tennis on Friday. We played some games and practised some tennis skills with a partner. We practised throwing a ball to our partner, letting a ball bounce before we catch it and using a tennis racket to hit things to a partner and to return items. As well as practising using a tennis racket to hit a tennis ball over the net. We had a great time at the tennis courts.
