Welcome to Blue Class!
In Blue Class there are 9 children, 1 girl and 8 boys.
We have a teacher and 3 assistants to help us learn.
We are a very sociable and energetic class who love to learn through exploring. In our class we work very hard and at a fast pace, so we might come home very tired. We use signs and symbols to help us communicate and visual supports to help with structures in our school routine, appropriate behaviour, dealing with our emotions and remembering information.
In our school day we work hard on our curriculum targets as well as using the SCERTS approach which helps us with our Social Communication, Emotional Regulation and Transactional Supports.
We are also working very hard on play skills, social skills and independent skills.
Our Theme - Television
Our topic this term is 'Television'
We will be exploring lots of activities linked to television this term and the first half of the spring term. We are really lucky to be continuing to access woods for learning this term and enjoy putting together a documentary about all of our achievements in this.
In Communcation, Language and Literacy (CLL) we doing lots of story writing and poetry linked to television. We will also be working hard on our handwriting by writing questions in preperation for interviewing some of the staff around the school as part of our documentary of 'A day in the life of Blue class'.
Some of the books we will be exploring this term will link to our weekly focus and will include cookery books, animal books and some of our favourite television characters. We will also be looking at television adverts and i know the children will enjoy looking at the catalogues in the run up to christmas.
In maths we will be doing lots of matching and sorting as well as measuring. We will also be having a focus on time and sequencing.
As part of our Physical education we will be continuing to participate in our weekly tennis sessions. This will give us the opportunity to watch tennis on our smartboard and look at commentating our own tennis matches.
We will be exploring our creative sides with lots of Art and Drama sessions by acting out our own programmes.
In music we will be welcoming our music therapist Kwaku to our class where we will be exploring lots of different musical instruments and songs linked to television. We will also be seeing if the children can recognise some television theme tunes. These sessions are a great opportunity for us to work on turn taking, following instructions and speaking and listening as well as awakening our musical sides!
Please have a look at our class planner to get a better idea of some of the activities we have planned for this term.
