Welcome to Red Class!
In Red Class there are 8 children, 6 boys and 2 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 - Community
For the second half of the spring term and the first half of the summer term our theme will be "Community".
We will be following this theme during our English sessions by reading, writing and talking about people who are part of our community like the Police, Fire Services, shopkeepers and health professionals. In our maths sessions we will practice using money as you would in local shops and cafes and of course talk about location when we look at where things are in our locality.
From a creative point of view this theme we focus on art and music so we will paint and draw our local area and the people we see in it. In addition we will try to listen to music made in our community and maybe make some music about the people and places who make it up.
"Our World" focus is on Science, Geography, History and RE. There are plenty of possibilities for learning about the plants and animals we see locally. We can also learn about how the look of our town has changed over time; what buildings are new and old, what shops have we gained and lost and what areas are now built on that were green.
Of course we would like to get out into the community by visiting local places and we also hope to have community visitors such as the Police and Fire Services come to visit us in school.
Home Learning Suggestions
There are lots of opportunities for going out into the local community as part of every day life so here are some suggestions that you might like to try with your child.
