Welcome to another year of learning in the ARC. This year we are making 'real-life' learning our main focus. The children are growing vegetables and selling them. This not only teaches them about growing and where our food comes from but gives them practice using money and working with the general public. The children have also visited a farm where they pressed and bottled apple juice. They were all keen to have a taste it! In art we have designed and made a curtain to go under our sink hiding all our outside equipment. Watch this space for more real- life learning!
The children in the ARC have grown their own vegetables over the year. In September we harvested tomatoes, potatoes and apples.
The children enjoyed the process of making chutney: chopping, weighing out the ingredients and mixing it together.
We also took up bag full of apples to Ashgrove Farm where we had the opportunity to press our own apples and make apple Juice.
At the Harvest Festival we sold our produce and were thrilled to raise over £40 which will go towards our outings to help the children with their life skills learning.
We have been printing in the ARC today.
We used a flour and water paste to create an African batik curtain to go around the sink.
We are inspired by the awe and wonder of the world.
We are bold and innovative in our approach to find new solutions to the challenges we face.
We are the best we can be.
We take responsibility for our actions in an environment of mutual respect.
We overcome all barriers to reach our potential, developing a capacity to improve further.
We are passionate about learning.
