We have had a very busy term here in Room 7. We have been working on the JC2 programme and doing some work on Personal care, different ways that we can relax and recognising some of the different places in our Local Community. We have been working on Time and Money in Numeracy and we are all progressing well in these areas. We are enjoying our weekly swimming sessions in the local swimming pool and we are continuing to develop our dressing skills here. We have gone on a variety of different social outings including trips to the cinema, bowling, out for lunch and shopping trips. While on these outings we work on developing many different skills including money skills, independent living skills and road safety skills.We all love helping with jobs here in Room 7 and some of the pupils have begun doing some jobs on the school grounds independently, for example, collecting the post from the main house and delivering messages to different areas on campus. We are all looking forward to our Easter break and having a nice rest, so we can come back to school after the holidays for lots more learning and fun.
We had great fun doing an experiment to find out things that float and things that sink.
We have had a very busy term here in Room 7. We have continued to work hard on our JC2 programme developing skills in Literacy, Numeracy and Personal care. We are enjoying playing word and number bingo to develop our reading and number recognition skills. We enjoyed learning all about different modes of transport in May and particularly enjoyed travelling on a train to Maynooth. Many of our pupils were involved in the school choir that sang at the First Holy Communion and Graduation masses. They put a lot of work in practicing in the church so a big well done to them on the great job they did. We celebrated a lot of birthdays this term in Room 7, including Diana’s, Helena’s, Timotei’s and Aaron’s. The pupils all had great fun celebrating with their friends. We are continuing with our weekly swimming sessions and we are seeing big improvements in the pupils water skills and dressing skills so well done to all on the progress you are making. We have also continued with our social training outings, most recently having went bowling in the Leisureplex and to Captain Americas. We hope to go on a couple more outings before the summer holidays. We are looking forward to our Active School week and Sports Day.Finally we would like to say we hope you all enjoy the summer holidays and we look forward to seeing all our friends again in September.
Room 7 really enjoyed writing their own Halloween Poem and creating Haunted Houses for their Halloween display
