Welcome to Red Class!
In Red Class there are 8 children, 5 boys and 3 girls.
We have a teacher and 3 assistants to help us learn.
We use symbols, Makaton, high tech AAC devices and our voices to communicate and visual timetables to support us during the day.
Our Theme - Television
We have begun our topic session with our first programme..... The Great British Bake Off! In this session we made some lovely choc chip cookies. The children also thoroughly enjoyed.... Name that tune. They watched some clips of the programme with music, then played a bingo game by matching the correct picture when they heard the tune.
In Literacy we will be reading recipes and this is linked with maths where the children will be measuring and weighing ingredients.
In PSHE we will cover healthy foods that sports people need to eat (as well us us!)
Mr Blooms nursery will help us to understand the importance of veges and fruit, and Justin's House will make us laugh as we think about emotions and feelings.
This term in PE we will be doing 'Dance', so.... 'Brooklands strictly' will be lots of fun as well as our keep fit aerobics sessions.
Mr Maker/Art Ninja/Art Attack will help us with some creative art activities, and some children will make their own 'TV' with cartoon strips.
In History we will learn about the history of the Television.
For a more detailed idea of the subjects we will be covering, please take a look at our topic planner.
Home Learning Suggestions
1. Your children could help you to do some cooking.... measure, read simple words/pictures from a recipe. Throughout this encourage good sentence structure eg. Crack the eggs, then put them into the bowl. (That is quite a difficult sentence for some so you can simplify it to their needs). Some children require naming and pointing/tasting ingredients and giving feedback as to whether they like it or not.
2. Discuss the weather with weather programmes.
3. Sports scores
4. Parents could take up a Mister Maker art project at home and this will be great to spend time with your child.
5. Trips to wildlife centres and watching some wildlife programmes will be great to learn about different animals.
Just a few ideas to support your child's learning.
