S2 have embarked on the second year of their walking programme as part of the Asdan module ‘Health’. We have been using pedometers to track our steps, and then putting our step count into a spreadsheet on the computer. We average 7000 steps per walk!

S2 have been happy to return to school after their summer break. It’s a sociable all boy class that like to have fun when they work. This term we have been enjoying sports, starting with swimming.

S2 are trying new topics within senior clubs in Art, Cookery, Music and PE; this also gives them the opportunity to mix with pupils from other classes. As well as following the Northern Ireland Curriculum S2 are also studying ASDAN New Horizons. The pupils enjoy going out on trips as well as working in school, helping them to develop their life skills as they move through senior school.
