Last Friday, Dan from Zoolab brought different animals in and gave a sensory and educational lesson to each class. All learners handled the animals and learnt different facts about them.

The classes took turns in seeing the animals including rabbit, rat, tortoise and a guinea pig. The day was enjoyable for all the learners and they learnt a lot about all the animals!

On Tuesday we had a Fundraising Day and we sold cream teas and cakes, books and DVDs and we also did some car washing. A lot of classes and staff came and enjoyed cakes and cream teas and we sold a lot of the books. We raised just over £150.00. We raised the money for the victims of the Earthquake in Nepal and also some will be going towards activities on our Extended Visit.  Thank you for everyone’s help we were really pleased with the amount we raised.

On Monday we went to Boydells Farm. We found out about the job of a Farmer. He showed us how to milk cows and feed the animals. We had a go if we wanted to.

On Tuesday I went to Roundwoods garden centre with George and Nikesh. We did some planting and learnt the names of different flowers. Tarnia, Alice and Alison went to the Arts café in Colchester. They spoke to the lady in charge and watched the people who work there. Luke and Beth went to Chelmsford College. They met the college tutors, got shown around the college and had lunch in the canteen with some ex students!

On Wednesday the boys went to Kent Blaxills in Colchester. They learnt about lots of different trades from kitchen salesman to glass cutting. The girls had a beauty day and watched a haircutting demonstration. They finished the day with a makeover and photo shoot. 

On Thursday, everyone came in smartly dressed and had an interview for a job.

I got the job of a Fundraiser, Alice was the Catering manager, Tarnia was the Arts and Crafts Coordinator, Luke was an ICT technician, Beth was an Advertiser, Alison was a Nursery Nurse, George was an Office worker and Nikesh was a Head Gardener. 

On Friday we finished the week with a presentation on working on the trains. We practised punching tickets and saw how to drive the trains. It was a really exciting and busy week.


The date of the Summer Fayre has changed from the 11th July to the 18th July.


Last Thursday, the Fordetts choir came in for our assembly and performed a number of songs for the learners. The learners really enjoyed listening and clapping along to the performance. Thank you to the choir for a wonderful performance.
