Our annual trip to the post office is another example of the real life application of the learning that takes place in Bluebird Class.  We posted our letters to Santa and take created a post office within the classroom.

 

 

November 2017

We took our first trip off school premises to the local park to observe aspects of autumn.  We showed good following directions and held onto our friends hands as we nagivated the route around the park with a mainstream class.  We found different coloured leaves as well as some berries.

We were very lucky to have Firefigther Singh come and visit us.  He showed us what firefighters need to wear to keep themselves safe.  We learnt that firefighters do lots of tasks.  They put out fires, save animals and search for lost people.

 

       

We had some special visitors teach us how to use music to enhance stories.  We learnt how to start and stop playing instruments by following a conductor as well as playing rhythms loudly and softly.
