Our Key Stage 3 Nurture Group wanted to share some of their work with you from the last few weeks..

At the end of November we had a change in groups and said goodbye to Kieran who moved into Mr Roscoe’s class while Daniel joined us and has settled well, enjoying his lessons. In English, the boys have eagerly completed lots of the “Holes” work as they want to know how the book finishes and watch the film..

All that hard work paid off as we finished the book last week just in time to watch the film before the end of term.

In Science we have looked at how animals reproduce and the group showed a mature attitude while we completed the lesson..

We are working on the topic of human reproduction and this followed on to our PSHE lessons on personal hygiene. Well done boys, you showed a mature attitude on your first lesson.

We have continued with division in Maths, with the boys enjoying using Maths bingo as a lesson starter..

We have also been working on finding the areas of different shapes and estimating lengths of objects with some very good guesses.

In food technology the boys have made chicken curry. They worked safely, showing how independent they are becoming..

Each of them produced a tasty dish to take home..

The boys had a very interesting lesson pricing up items they would need to buy if they were setting up a home of their own. It’s amazing to see how much they would spend before having a budget to stick to!

We have been busy preparing for Christmas, making snow globes in art and craft and putting the finishing touches to our Christmas cards..

The boys made shortbread Christmas trees with amazing results..

 

Last week the boys made fantastic Christmas chocolate logs. Well done Jacob and Mitchell, you both worked tidily and safely. They couldn’t wait to take them home to eat!

Each of the boys had a good selection of crafts, decorations and gifts to take home at the end of term..

..including the Christmas tree decorations they made one, with funky foam and another using Hamma beads..

Mitchell and Jacob made Christmas crackers but only sealed one end waiting for a surprise to go in them..

The bulbs the boys planted at the start of term are just ready to start to come into flower in time for Christmas..

On Thursday it was school’s Super Learning Day, with the theme of giving. Miss Rodgers spoke to the group about the Prophets and the four weeks of Advent. The boys listened well and joined in with the questions and answers..

At the end the boys were given a gift..

A big thank you to Miss Rodgers and to George for lending the group his Nativity scene.

Well done boys, you’ve worked really hard this term. Have a lovely holiday and stay safe!
