Welcome to Green Class - Our group consists of eight children, seven boys and one girl, the Class Teacher, one Higher Level Teaching Assistant and two Teaching Assistants.
We communicate in various ways using different processes; verbally, high tech AAC devices, Makaton signing system, symbols and visual timetables.
Teaching and Learning
Our timetable consists of all core teaching and learning and assessment areas ensuring a broad and varied curriculum for our children to access and enjoy. The work we do enables the pupils to progress academically and pastorally allowing them to explore their potential to the fullest.
Please see our weekly timetable attached below for a more detailed look at what the children do each week.
Theme - Habitats
During this half term we will be learning about habitats. In the first half term we will be exploring desert and sea side habitats. We will be looking at these environments; what they are like; what animals live there; what the weather might be, with lots of tactile exploration. We are hoping to have a trip to the sea side towards the end of the Summer Term. In the Autumn we are hoping to explore habitats closer to home, looking at our local environments, particularly our Gardens and the wildlife we can find there. Perhaps you can try this at home with your children. For a more detailed look at the types of activities we will be doing please have a look at class planner below.
Please send in any photos of you and your children exploring different habitats, or anything you are enjoying together. Then we can share them in class during a circle time.

Week Commencing 30th April - The Police
This week Green Class have been learning about the police and the role they play in our community. To end the week we played a sensory water game called 'Traffic Light Soup' where the children had to scoop out red, amber and green balls from troughs of water using spades, spoons and ladles . The water play was a welcome relief in the heat of the day!
Week Commencing 16th April - PE IPP Targets
This half term the children have been working on their ball handling skills using different equipment such as cricket bats and hockey sticks. We made the most of the sunshine and had our PE lesson outside this week.
28/03/18 Easter Party
The children enjoyed an Easter egg hunt today where they had to find pictures of eggs which had been hidden around the school, each egg had an activity the children had to do, for example 'pat your head'. Once the children had completed the hunt they came back to class to receive their certificate and a small chocolate egg!
