Drumbeat School & ASD Service

Welcome to 8MB. We are a class of 8 students: Omar, Sophia, Jessien, Otugoma, Shequille, Visakan, Agratha and Ang, with 3 staff: Maggie, Patrice, Wayne and midday meals supervisor Nelicia.

We are all getting used to our new timetable with different teachers for English and Maths, which for some of us means taking the responsibility of moving round the school more independently.

This year we are aiming to have lots of fun through being active. On Mondays we walk to swimming at Downham Leisure Centre   where we are enjoying our swimming lessons. On Wednesday afternoons we go out for a nature walk, often to Forster Park to talk about the changing seasons. On Friday we get a little further afield in the minibus, maybe to Lewisham or Greenwich or an adventure playground. Let’s hope the dry weather continues on those days!

In school we are doing dance exercise to music regularly, and being introduced to the fitness room as part of PE.

In Science this term we are investigating what plants need to grow, then, what humans need to stay healthy. In the second half of the term we will be cooking, and preparing food and craft items suitable for winter gifts.
