What a fantastic start at the Lantern! We were so excited to welcome all our pupils to the newest Mary Rose site on Tuesday. They have coped extremely well with the change in environment and pupils are enjoying the calm and quiet learning space. Our new sensory room and immersive learning suite installations will be completed this week and we just can’t wait to see the pupils reactions.
There are two classes on site, Nova and Comet. Nova is led by Kate supported by Hayley, Alain, Katrina and Georgia. Comet is led by Sally with Paul and Ella as the Curriculum Leads for the team with Clare, April, Dash and Minnie making up the rest of the team.
We are spending our first couple of weeks settling into our new site, building new routines and learning how to use our new facilities. The theme at The Lantern this term is ‘Let There Be Light’. Pupils have begun to explore light through different activities. They have made lava lamps, used torches to find items in the dark and built simple circuits to make lights and fans work. We will be making products for the Lantern’s Christmas Market in December along the ‘light’ theme so please come and do your Christmas shopping with us!
We look forward to seeing you all soon and please do not hesitate to contact us. The Lantern telephone number is 023 92 830809.
