Armstrong

Welcome to Armstrong class. We are a class of 14 wonderful students. This year there are 10 girls and 4 boys in our group. We have been enjoying spending time together getting to know each other. As part of our morning program pupils have been working on the key Skills in Maths and English. They have been encouraged to develop their independent skills by organising themselves as they arrive into class in the morning. As part of our social development this year we have introduced a new program where pupils are asked to consider how they are feeling throughout the day. This new initiative is called ‘The Zones of Regulation’. As part of our topic work we have started off by looking at ‘The Seven Wonders of the modern world’. We have been developing our ICT skills by learning how to search for where we live, by typing in our addresses and searching on the map.
