To Infinity And Beyond Grow!!

​Since Christmas, the children at Braintree have been learning about space and exploring it. The children have learned about the planets, the moon and the  Apollo 11 mission. We know that Neil Armstrong was the the first man to walk on the moon. INTERESTING FACT ALERT!  Did you know that Buzz Lightyear, from the film Toy Story was named after Neil Armstrong's friend who went to the moon with him called Buzz Aldrin.

How To Make Tie Dye T Shirts!

GROW Intensive Clacton have been making tie dye t-shirts. All the children have listened to all instructions, followed all the rules and expectations and most importantly - they have had fun. They all wrote an instruction booklet so that they can teach another how to make one. They are all so happy with their results and we hope you'd agree they are absolutely beautiful!

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!
