We’re really looking forward to welcoming everyone safely back to school next week.

In the meantime, Ms Power has an update for us from SBU3..

We’ve continued our space theme this week by learning about the planets and their different features, carrying on with our book about astronauts, and thinking about whether it was ethical for the USSR to send a dog into space knowing that she would die.

We also made fabulous planet paintings using chalk pens and water colours, Harry joined us for the afternoon and it was great to see everyone working so well together.

In food tech this week we made fruit kebabs and spicy kebabs.

Mr Hopkins has also been keeping everyone on their toes this week..

In PE this week we have seen some great achievements on the trampoline as our pupils continued progressing their skills and confidence. We had Cody, our new arrival at SBU, on the trampoline for the first time who could be one to watch out for in the future and we also had 2 other students gaining a British Gymnastics Trampoline Award! We’ll have to wait until next week for the presentation of certificates though!!

For our outdoor education exploits, our group on Thursday went out exploring the reservoir at Crompton Moor and then the deep, dark wood which was very appropriate given it was World Book Day. Although we didn’t see a Gruffalo we did see a deer running through the woods! Tyler couldn’t believe it!! Once we had explored the wood we played a game of manhunt together which was great fun although everyone is getting too good at hiding now as it took me (the hunter) ages to find anyone!!! Well done to Jack for winning his first game!

Our Friday group took it a little easier and went out exploring Healey Dell which is a great place to walk around. There are 2 old railway tracks, 2 huge bridges and a platform to explore. Plus there is the fairies chapel to find, although apparently Kyle and Alyssa don’t believe in fairies – pah!

It was great to see all of our pupils outside again this week, enjoying the countryside and socialising together. I can’t wait until next week when we’re all back together at school again. See you all then, Mr Hopkins

Stay safe everyone and we will see you next week!
