Pink Class

Welcome to Pink Class!

 

There are seventeen children in Pink Class, twelve girls and five boys. 

The children work with fifteen adults and benefit from the support of the physiotherapists, occupational therapists and  speech and language therapists as well as the nursing team. We are also supported by two Midday Supervisors.

In Pink Class the children work in three main groups which are suited to their needs the Pink Cadillacs, Pink Panthers and Pink Flamingos. Within the three groups the children work either in small groups of two or one to one with an adult. 

The children have individual timetables which ensure that they are learning at times which best suit their needs. We have updated the timetable which is very general for the class.

Our theme - Community

Our theme for the second half of the Spring term and the first half of the summer term is Community. Through this theme the children will learn about about all the people who are involved in the very local community of school as well as the larger community out of school. This may involve doctors and nurses who may have a large input into the children's lives and who they know really well through to the people who empty the recycling bins every couple of weeks who they may not know so well. We will be involved in a whole school visit to the local church to celebrate Easter this half term and hope to go out with some of the children into our very local Reigate Community

 

 

Home Learning Suggestions

  • Help sort the re-cycling - is this paper or plastic?
  • Write and post letters - we would love to receive some
  • Visit a local bakery then pretend to be the baker and make some yummy cakes
  • Be a messenger and take a recorded message to a friend or ask for something in a shop
  • Visit the local Library
  • Take photos of the local High Street - we can then compare what they look like - how are they different and in what ways are they the same
  • Take photos of the children in the local community and send them to school

Pink Class Planner - Community

Lots of different activities happening in Pink Class last week

Busy week in Pink Class

This week Flamingos set up a toy shop in their class. They had lots of visitors who bought their toys for a penny. They then took the toys back to play with. Some of the other children dressed up in Firemen's outfits and others practised climbing ladders by using the play equipment in the playground.

Individual work, tactile, dressing up and physical work in Pink Class

Lovely week of April sunshine plus some indoor learning

Working on targets IPPs, OT & physio

Some of the things we have been up to this week

These last two weeks have been a little different with fewer children at school due to snow and the INSET day on Monday. The photos on the page this week have been taken over the last couple of weeks to ensure we had not missed anyone. They show some of the different activities the children have been up to including play, physio and target work.

In Pink Class all the children work on their physical skills. Some of the children do this through their physio and OT programmes others work on the fine motor skills. Many of the children use equipment to give them support. Pink Class make the most of the soft play room to practise physical skills in a safe environment, especially climbing and sliding. While working on their physical skills the children also work on visual skills, taking turns with friends, exploring new toys and environments and choosing.  

We have been exploring different toys during our free time.

Every week we work on a variety of activities which link in with different targets.

This term in Pink Class - more to follow very soon
