Happiness In A Jar

At Clacton Grow, the children spent time decorating happiness jars during a 6 core strength lesson.
The aim was to write about people, things or places that make them happy.
These two children worked incredibly hard not only writing as neat as possible but spent a lot of time decorating their jars.

The first jar  is LG's and the second jar is JG's.

Well Done HH

 This is HH

When he first started his GROW placement, he didn't know any of his times tables and were often a trigger for him.

He has worked incredibly hard to learn his timetables
The staff at GROW are incredibly proud to announce HH completed his first speedy tables grid all in one go!
What a fantastic achievement!

Clacton's Art Class

The children have been learning about artwork by John Constable.

These two children paid great attention to detail during the input and were able to produce these fantastic masterpieces of places that make them happy. The picture on the left is JG's and the picture on the right is LG's 

The Rainforest Of Brazil

One of our students presented her project all about the Brazilian Rainforest. She told all of us how dense the rainforest is and how different animals live in different layers of the forest.

Space and the Planets

These are the voyages of J and the starship Grow. It's 5 day mission, to explore new worlds, to seek out information about our Galaxy, To boldly go where no child has gone before....

Well done J. You did a great job on your space project

Amazing Lego

One of our children from Clacton, has made these Lego figures purely from memory! From Left to Right (Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Sonic and Donkey Kong),There is also a side picture of his Bowser figure because of the detail of the shell. Fantastic learning 'JG', I think you may be destined for a job at Lego World.

Emotion Emoji's

At Grow Braintree, we asked the children to  draw their own emotion emoji's. We had a great time discussing and drawing our own ones. Some of our children challenged themselves by putting masks on the emoji's so showing expression just with the eyes.  

How diseases spread.

Braintree Grow did a project on how diseases are spread and what we can do to prevent the spread of a virus.

Beating the January Blues at Colchester (North)

At Colchester (North) we've been finding ways to bring some brightness into our lives during this tricky time. Drumming, Tai Chi, outdoor learning, science investigations and creative artwork have proved to be brilliant ways for us to feel connected with ourselves and others, and have given us a sense of achievement, success and inner calm.
