S1 have had a busy January. We have begun a 10-week Pony Riding sessions which we are all having great fun. We also have started swimming this term as well. In class we have been working with J14 in shared circle times. It has been great making friends and sharing together.

S1 have been learning about people who help us. We have a visit from the Firemen and woman from the White Watch at Glengormley Firestation. It was lovely to meet them and to hear about all the ways they help people. We also got to see inside a fire engine and get to spray some water.

S1 is a Key Stage 3 class with 3 boys and 4 girls. In our class we are working hard on our independence, practical literacy and numeracy skills. We do lots of practical activities in school and out in our local community. We visit local cafes and shop to develop our practical numeracy and literacy skills. In school we take part in Eco School projects and gardening. Within Senior School we enjoy specialised teaching in a variety of subjects including Home Economics, Art, Music and PE. Social and Communication skills play a key part in our class work and we join up with other classes for these sessions. We enjoy going to the sensory room, Take Ten and Primary Movement to help us relax. S1 is a very hard working class with lots happening.
