Red Class

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.

11/1/19 The children have begun to stick their photos onto strips in order to make their own television. They are also learning to tell stories and use finger puppets with some help.

30/11/18 For our topic the children watched an episode of Chuggington, then set up the train tracks and played with the small worlds toys, and also made shape train pictures. In PSHE the children were working on sharing and using correct language when role playing with each other.

23/11/18 Some swimming pictures amongst our Diwali celebrations. Children helped to make chocolate peda ( a toffee type sweet), they made clay diya's and painted this last week and also made some rangoli patterns.

16/11/18 Over the week we have tried to capture the work we have been doing in number and geometry and measurement. The children are working on their various targets, independent work in workstations and ICT work to continue target work in a different way. They are working very hard.

8/11/18 For our topic: Television we enjoyed having our own Great British Bake Off! So everyone got into small groups and the children helped to read the recipe, collect ingredients and they all enjoyed making choc chip cookies.

02/11/18 The children spent a happy Halloween learning that it is much better to care than to scare. We bobbed for apples, iced spider biscuits and played boules with pumpkins. A great day was had by all.

18/10/18 Our photos are from last week's Harvest Festival activities. The children rotated doing 3 activities in the morning. 1. Baking bread rolls which we enjoyed warm with butter, 2. Smelling fruits and veg then making prints, and 3. Gardening. The children dug up pictures of fruit and veg to name them. They also planted colourful foliage to make a garden. In the afternoon the children had a lovely walk down the road to enjoy the Harvest Festival celebration at church.

11/10/18 Pictures this week are from speaking and listening. During this time the children do 3 activities: Targets, workstation activities for independence and a physical activity which is soft play with exercises in this session. Children are working on a variety of targets like sequencing pictures using connectives, making plurals, constructing sentences at a 1,2,3,4 or more key word sentence depending on their levels. Some children communicate choices in different ways too. We even have a child who is learning to write stories and explain the emotions and feelings throughout.

5/10/18 Our photos are taken from our reading session. Children have a chance to choose library books, listen to stories and also do their target work.

27/9/18 Our pictures are taken from writing. The children get a chance to work on their targets in their books, and practise using 'froggy fingers'. They also work in some sort of messy activity, (this week was cornflour), and we are encouraging drawing using different shapes. This week was a butterfly.

21/9/18 The children enjoyed exploring snow and animals that live in cold climates. They also made polar bear paintings with forks and experienced a sensory story about The Lost Polar Bear. In PSHE the children have been working on naming the adult animal and the baby.

14/9/18 Over the last 2 weeks Red class have been getting to know each other. The photos are from our Maths shape, space and measure session, and our habitat topic was about exploring animals from the jungle. We also covered habitat in the desert.

Arts Week - We have had quite a week in Red Class in arts week. We have tried out arts from around the word. African necklaces and masks. Latin American music, snowy sensory stories. And of course all the French activities to start the week off on Monday; croque monsieurs, French wooden spoon people and even the "Tour de France"!

Habitats - Zoolab bought in a fantastic selection of creatures, the children loved them!

Habitats - British Wildlife Centre. To get a better idea about how animals live in Britain we visited the British Wildlife Centre in Lingfield. It was a lovely hot day and we saw (amongst others) stoats, weasels, foxes, badgers, owls, wildcats, deer and otters. The picnic lunch was great and the ice lolly at the end of the day even better.

PE - Hockey. Red class are getting good at hockey, they can now dribble a ball around cones. It's almost time for a game!

Santander Big Build - As part of the Santander "Big Build" classes had a chance to help paint some of the things that will go into the new sensory garden. Red class and volunteers from Santander painted bird boxes, wooden hands and fish. It was a messy but everyone enjoyed themselves.

Habitats - We started our new theme by trying to decide what animals go into what habitats. We decided which bit of material was which habitat and then sorted the toy animals.

Science - we are learning about light in science at the moment. This week we learnt about reflections, what reflects and what doesn't.

Community - Seasons in Reigate. We painted seasonal scenes over the top of Priory Park pictures, adding blossom, leaves or snow depending on the season. We also planted seeds of plants that typically grow in this area since it is still spring at the moment. We will watch them grow through the summer.

PE - Parachute Games. We played parachute games outside. There are a number of different ones but they focus on the children listening and cooperating to move the parachute together to achieve an aim; such as throwing a ball up or letting players move underneath the parachute.
