Worry monsters what are they?

Worry monsters are toys that you write your worry down and put it in the mouth and they come in all shapes and sizes you can find them in some shops they can be very calming when you are down and we can use them for stress relief toys but that is with the soft ones.

 

Are they available in school

 


 

Yes people can make and use them if you’re teacher allowed you to .

They are often used in support for learning

 

CAN You make your own

 


 

yes you can make one (or two) and they are quite easy to make you still have to practice (just to make the worry monster perfect)

 

Can children with autism use worry monsters

 


 

Yes they are good for autism but they are not safe for infants e.g 1 year olds

At assembly we will be looking at worry monsters and we will have a worry monster safari/ zoo.

World book day

Check out the world book day site for Cool stories and videos

For anyone who has no idea what world book day is it is…technically a day celebrating books. It is celebrated a lot in other countries in the world and we celebrate it too! Even though it sounds super boring most people like it, we don’t have a reason for celebrating it .

Check out the Support for Learning blog. We sometimes post things on that blog too.

And check out the P6 blog it is very good and is a great blog.

December in LC1

It was very exciting month! Children couldn’t wait until Christmas, counting how many chocolates (from our Advent Calendar) they had to eat before the end of the term 🙂.

It was also very busy month. In LC1, kids worked hard learning about different Christmas symbols and traditions and how Christmas is celebrated around the world. They learned about Nativity  Story and the reason why Christmas is so important for Christian people.

The children had written letters to Santa which they later went to post. They did great job creating Christmas cards and decorations.

We also took part in “Winter Wonderland” whole school event, where different classes organised and presented winter themed activities.

We finished the term in festive moods, laughing (during Seasonal Panto) and dancing (at Christmas disco).

Happy New Year!

In LC1, we have started new term with interesting Interdisciplinary Project – Passing time and seasonal changes. We learned about different ways of measuring time such as years, months, weeks, days and seasons.

We learned about different features of 4 seasons and about changes in the world around us.

The children observed and discussed what happens to trees and animals during different seasons. We learned about different types of weather and how it affects them and us. We made bird feeders using seeds and dry worms which we later hang on the trees at the school’s playground.

The children discovered what happens to water during very hot and very cold weather. We even made our own ice-lollies!

As part of the IDL Project, the children learned about different seasonal celebrations. We celebrated Robert Burns’ birthday by preparing traditional Scottish food: haggis, neeps and tatties and also flapjack. Then we invited our parents to celebrate and share the food with them.

In LC1 we have also started project about food preparation where we learn to create different recipes and later to follow them to prepare simple snacks.
