Students in 16SC worked very hard last half term to make cards and gifts to sell for Valentines Day. The students were very engaged in all of the sessions as the stuck together cards, stamped greetings, packaged candles, labelled gifts, filled sweet jars and priced our items. Over the half term students became more and more independent at completing simple tasks and worked well at developing fine motor skills associated with all the different tasks we had to complete. Our end products looked amazing and we were all very proud of the stall that we set up in the school staffroom. The staff seemed to like our products too and we made over £50. All of the money we earn goes back into our enterprise fund to put towards our next project. This half term we will be making Easter cards and gifts.

The students in 16SC had a great day designing and making our Osborne Bake Off entry. We decided to base our theme on ‘pirates’ as Sammy loves pirates and ‘sharks’ as Alex has recently been singing the theme tune of Jaws to everyone’s delight in class.
Our task was to make ‘Tropical Rocky Road’ and most of the students loved trying a range of tropical fruits, some just enjoyed smelling and feeling them and Sammy simply enjoyed balancing the pineapple on his head!
The students were completely engaged by the whole day and were very excited when we headed down to the hall for the judging. Ben was keen to dress up as a pirate and added the drama to our entry as he raised his sword and shouted Arrrrrrr! scaring the judges as they tasted our entry – Rocky, Tropical, Shark Infested Pirate Island. We were all very excited and proud when we were announced as the winners of the coveted ‘Mary and Paul’s Favourite Bake’ category. What a fantastic day!

Students enjoyed their first trip of the year to the QE2 Activity Centre. Our first activity was climbing and the swings and all of the students who went participated in one or both of the activities. Students were encouraged to put on their own safety equipment and follow instructions from Kerri our instructor. Some students were a little nervous at first but after watching the others having so much fun they couldn’t resist joining in too. Lauryn showed real talent on the climbing walls and climbed all 4 walls!
