Life Skills Tasks 1

Good Day Team Year 14,

 

I hope everyone is well. What a strange time we are living through. The important thing to remember is we WILL get through it. 

 

We are going to set you some tasks over the next two weeks that will be keep you occupied while you are at home. NOT just playing Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo switch or any other console, you all know who I am talking about!!laugh

 

The tasks will involve doing practical things, researching topics that you are interested in and games that you can play with your families at home.

 

Fingers crossed the Sun will keep his hat on for a while, which means you should get outside and keep up your fitness that we have worked on in Leisure for Life. No laziness, you all know who I am talking about!! laugh If you and everyone in your household is feeling well, go for a walk around the your local area. If you can go out, stay 6 feet away from anyone else this is called 'Practicing social distance'. Remember your travel training.

Within your house you can perform:

  • Sit ups
  • Push ups,
  • Step ups on the stairs,
  • Star jumps

Keep active, you will feel better and you will sleep better.

 

Task for week beginning Monday 23rd March:

 

First up we have a practical task, I would like you to complete a mile walk outside while practicing social distancing, 2 or 3 times next week. Bring a family member, a pet (unless its a goldfish, that would just look weird ) or a Luke Skywalker cuddly toy (You know who you are)laugh

 

If you can not make it outside, I would like you to perform a number of exercises in your house 2 or 3 times next week:

 

  • 10 Sit ups
  • 10 Push ups (these can be done with your knees on the ground, back straight, head up and with your hands on the ground bend at the elbows.)
  • 10 star jumps

 

Mrs McKee, Mrs Murdoch and I will be in touch over the next number of weeks via Google Classroom, make sure you continue to check in with us. I'm sure there may be a few random quiz questions put up, so be sure to answer. If anyone has stories to share or ideas about what you could do at home while we are off, please feel free to share them with us on Google Classroom. We will post information about the future tasks on this website so keep checking, we wouldn't want you to miss out.

 

Finally Year 14 remember to smile, keep your body and mind active, be safe and WASH YOUR HANDS while singing We Will Rock You by Queen. See below.

Year 14 working with Extern and the PSNI during our community and volunteering day. This week the pupils found out about, Police bike patrols around North Down. The pupils also had the opportunity to use the speed gun, on vehicles outside the school gates. Finally they all had the opportunity to get into the holding cell in the back of the Police van. Fortunately they were all very sorry for their crimes and were released without charge

Volunteering and Community Social Action Project

Volunteering and Community Social Action Project 1 Yr14 with Rebecca from Cancer Fund for Children NI
Year 14 have chosen Cancer Fund for Children NI as their charity for their Social Action Project. Rebecca from the Cancer Fund charity visited school this week to give them some background information on what they do and why they need the money. She also helped the group brainstorm what they need to do to put their fundraising ideas into action. The pupils have decided to do a street collection in Donaghadee and also a sponsored walk, both of which will take place in the summer term. In the meantime, they will work on planning and creating their publicity materials so they’re all ready for the events.
Be prepared to dig deep when the time comes to support this worthy cause!

In DIY, Year 14 have started learning about home maintenance. Today, we focussed on buying and changing lightbulbs.

Year 14 have been working very hard in DIY classes this year. They started by creating questionnaires to learn more about their ‘customer’. Next, pupils came up with some mood boards and design ideas for their personalised up-cycled chair. After lots of sanding, painting, varnishing, computer aided design, and decoupage... it was finally time to surprise the teachers with the chairs for their young children. As you can see from the photos, they LOVED their surprises! Well done Year 14!

During their Volunteering the last few weeks with Abbeyfield & Wesley, Year 14 have planted Spring bulbs, promoted the Supported Living facility at Bloomfields and helped put up their Christmas trees.
