On Wednesday 15th October, Monkeys class visited Sutton Park. We had been looking at the story of Percy the Park keeper and part of this was experiencing a park. The children had a great day out and we were really lucky the weather stayed dry for us. We went to feed the ducks, played on the play area, had a picnic in the café (and ice cream) and finally played hide and seek. The following day they wrote a recount on their trip.
During December class 3.3 visited Blithbury Reindeer Lodge. Where we met a lovely dog called ‘Bow’, who Rhys made friends with straight away. We were lucky enough to see the baby and mommy reindeers and the BIG daddy reindeers. Feeding them was great fun. Our guide Heidi showed us round and we
learnt that each year the Reindeer antlers fall off!
After meeting the Reindeers we all had a super sleigh ride
pulled by ‘Dancer the Reindeer’. This made us all giggle.
After Lunchtime we sang Christmas carols and then….. Santa arrived! We were all so excited and we all received a lovely present . It was a Magical, Christmassy time!
On Friday 5th December 5.3 were invited to join Galileo 1 for some pre – Christmas fun. The session started with Ed playing Christmas songs on his guitar whilst we all sang and played along with a selection of instruments. Next we helped out with making marshmallow and strawberry chocolate skewers as well as decorating Christmas biscuits – delicious! The session ended with more Christmas songs, including Liz’s favourite – “Last Christmas” by Wham!!!
On the 21st November 2014 Cllr Penny Holbrook officially opened our fantastic new building which is a dedicated centre for students aged 16-25 years.
The Hive has been developed to provide our Sixth Form and our 19-25 LIVE students with the very best education and training within the impressive half million centre which features four superb teaching rooms and specialist facilities.
Cllr Holbrook was very impressed with The Hive and the study programmes that we offer our students to support them into employment and promote their independence and confidence. She was thrilled to be invited to do the official opening and wished all our students the very best of luck for the future.
Other visitors included Alex Lofthouse from University College Birmingham, Chris Atkinson, Assistant Director for Children with Complex Needs and Emma Leaman, Head of Education, Skills and Infrastructure.
The Hive has formed many partnerships with prestigious companies who offer our students work placement opportunities and representatives from some of these companies attended the opening such as Aston Villa Football Club, HSBC, Witton Lodge Community, CP Midlands, Priestly Smith School and Witton Lodge Community.
The students and staff were very excited about the opening and made sure that all our visitors received a very warm welcome to their new premises.
