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 timetable for the Summer Term

Our Theme - Community

For 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. 

  • Going out shopping; helping make the shopping list, picking items off the shelf, talking to the shopkeepers. Helping to pay by handing over money and taking change. 
  • Walking around the local area and looking at the different people that we see; are they young or old? Note that people all dress differently and some might be from different cultures but they are all part of our community. 
  • Visiting cafes; looking at the menu, choosing food from displays, interacting with the staff. Following the "rules" of how to behave when eating out. 
  • Looking at local buildings; which ones are new or old? What goes on in them?
  • Visiting local parks; who is playing there, what sports and activities are going on? 
  • Visit the local library; take out books, take part in community activities that often occur there. 
  • Talk to parents, friends and relatives who have lived in this area for a long time; what are their memories of how the area has changed?

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.

PE - Our PE focus is games this term. This week we tried playing "Skittleball". This is a bit like dodgeball but one team has to knock over the other skittles. It is a really simple game and quite fast paced. The children loved playing it and we will certainly have more matches next week now that they know the rules.

Community - History. We looked at new and old pictures of Reigate. The children were really good at spotting what hed changed (e.g. cars instead of horses in the streets) and what had stayed the same (most buildings). Everyone was surprisingly interested in looking at the photos and good at sorting old from new.

We had a special cooking session for "Earth Day" this week. We made "Dirt and worm pudding". This was far nicer than it sounds since the dirt was chcolate whipped pudding and crumbled oreos and the worms were strawberry laces.

Easter - For our Easter event we were supposed to go to the local church but unfortunately the weather stopped us going. Fortunately we were still able to have had the celebration in the hall. Then on the last day of term the Easter Bunny made an appearance in class distributing chocolate!

PE - For our PE sessions we are playing some games suggested by Surrey Ourdoor Learning (SOLD). They are to promote teamwork and communication. The two games we played today were making a bridge between two islands and making a channel from guttering to move a ball into a bucket that is a distance from the start point.

Community - This week we talked about the Police and the work they do in the community. One of the Red Class staff used to be a police officer so they were able to bring in some real police clothing for the children to dress up in and roleplay being police officers.
