Lizzie Bea Workshop Beech had a wonderful workshop with the delightful Lizzie Bea. The session consisted of warming up with a few stretches, a discussion about the stone age; followed by acting out different scenarios. We used our bodies, to make movements for how the Stone age people would hunt gigantic Woolly Mammoths or vicious Sabre toothed tigers. We looked at the movements of lighting fire, collecting food, painting in a cave and other daily tasks. The children had a wonderful time and although found it difficult, as many felt out of their comfort zones, all managed to participate and enjoy the session. We were fortunate enough to end the session by having Lizzie Bea sing to us ‘Good morning Baltimore’ from the production Hairspray she will be staring in.
Independent Living Class visited Bexley Fire Station as part of our Unit on ‘Keeping Safe’. The Firefighters were really impressed at how much the students knew about fire safety. We were lucky enough to all have a go at spraying the hose and we watched them use cutters and spreaders to remove a car door!
Buttercup Class - Rebound Therapy, our EYFS class; Buttercup Class enjoyed their very first Rebound therapy session focussing on the basic movements of trampolining. This included being able to sit, lay and show enjoyment in being bounced and rocked on the trampoline with the support of an adult. They coped fantastically with the change of setting, they loved the freedom of the sports hall and enjoyed the use of the school minibus. We look forward to our next session working towards the children gaining their first certificate.
On Wednesday 5th February the U14 boys football team went to the South London Special League in Kidbrooke. They played four games against Glebe, Drumbeat, Kings Oak and fellow LSEC school Endeavour Academy. The team drew the first two games and won the next two games. Harry scored two goals and Asher and Malakhi also scored one goal each. Other team members James, Ben and Ted played a vital role in goal and defence. The team finished joint first with Kings Oak. The boys were a credit to themselves and the academy. Very well done. Mrs Leadbetter
