Another successful term for Seashells

Monday, December 21st, 2020

What an exciting time was had this term, with a wide range of activities revolving around the theme of Light and Celebration.

Starting off the adventure was a whole school art venture commemorating Diwali.  We focused upon a glue and paint canvas with a big Seashell in the middle which can be seen below, a truly bright and detailed piece of art in a patterned style.  Also included are a number of efforts by different class groups.

Similarly we demonstrated our creative skills with a vibrant and respectful oversized art work commemorating poppy day which was proudly on display outside our classroom.  Students really got physically involved in the making process, using fine motor skills and bold body movements to inspire figurative likenesses.

More Certificates for our students, all the way from Texas, with our splat paintings receiving high praise indeed from the festival of Owl judges.

Swimming again was very popular with certificates being presented for flexibility, persistence and bravery.  Well done, keep up the hard work.

Sports and competition is highly important to Seashell Class as we tried a number new activities, all in our journey to greatness.  This term we played rugby, dodge ball and snooker.

Big thanks to the students who let us into their world of quality control via their end of year Christmas video.  A wonderful day of filming, with students demonstrating their testing and playing skills.

Sensory class was a resounding success with a wide range of craft, fun and interaction.  My particular favourite was the dog car clinic, caring for a number of sick pooches.

Another successful approach to cooking this term, some very tasty and surprising creations.  Some good, some abstract.  Apple crumble was a particular favourite demonstrating our mixing and chopping talents.

A big thanks to TLC (Tina, Lynne and Cheryl) for their hard work ensuring all targets were actualised.

Congratulation to the students for their dedication, persistence and humour.

Finally have a safe and fun Christmas and New Year.

See you soon.

Barry and the Seashells.
