SENIOR ASD CLASS

Welcome to Mrs. Warren’s class!

Take a look at what we got up to this year.

June

Our class had great fun attending our school tour in Kilkenny. Thankfully the weather was sunny and warm. We started our day with bowling in KBowl Kilkenny. We were given treats and biscuits which we all enjoyed. We all had a turn trying to knock down the pins. We even had a go at sitting on a throne for a well-deserved break. After bowling we visited the Reptile Village. Here we had the opportunity to observe snakes, lizards, crocodiles and geckos! We had the opportunity to touch some of these creatures. Everyone was very brave
except Mrs. Warren who wouldn’t touch the snake. At the Reptile Village we had great fun at the play area and enjoyed our time there. It was a fantastic school tour.

Sports  Day was a great success. We had a variety of races and activities. The sack race was great fun but hard work. Ms. Hayden also gave her students head bands and wrist bands to wear. We all looked extra sporty. It was an opportunity to have chats with friends. Activities included welly throwing and penalty shoot outs. The water activity was very popular.A very busy day with lots of activities completed.

May

Our class had a busy month. In science we learned about bridges. We tested
bridges in our classroom using paper and coins. One bridge held over twenty copper coins!
This month we also celebrated Europe Flag Day. We coloured in flags from Romania and Latvia. We had great fun walking to the castle to show all our flags.
New tablets arrived at our school, and we had great fun testing them out with our class. These touch screens make them easy and fun to use.
At the end of the month, we had our Music Generation Concert. We enjoyed playing and practicing the guitar with our teacher Paul.
We started our Art for the Tullow Show. We will have lovely art to show for June.
