The Senior Classroom has had a great start to the new school year with lots of changes. The classmates also said goodbye to one student and welcomed Paul into the classroom. The students will be busy again this year with all their ASDAN modules and community outings. So far this year we have been to the library and numerous restaurants. Everyone loves getting out into the community. We have also continued with our weekly shopping trip to prepare our snacks and lunches.
During groups we have been doing lots of stories with the students enjoying “A Tiger Came to Tea”, “Room on a Broom” and “Fletcher and the Falling Leaves” the most. We incorporate these stories into many different curriculums such as maths and art as well. We have also introduced more Sensory Stories throughout the lessons which have worked well and we will continue with these.
The Senior class have also welcomed in a group of Transition Year students from Colaiste Iognaid to work in the classroom for an hour a week. Everyone is having a great time getting to know the girls and playing board games with them, as well as art projects. It has been wonderful to see the interaction between the students. The Senior class have completed “This is Us” whole school art project which turned out lovely and we will continue to do more school wide art projects. All in the Senior class are looking forward to our Christmas preparations.
