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 - Habitats

For the second half of the summer term and the first half of the Autumn term our theme will be "Habitats". 

We will look at both British and International habitats with a focus on the former during the summer term.

For English we will read stories and poetry about different animals and habitats and learn new vocabulary we can use to describe them. Of course we will also try to write about and describe them ourselves too. 

In Maths there is plenty of scope for describing and comparing habitats using mathematical language during shape, space and measure sessions. We can also use work on data handling using the results of our investigations in the sensory garden. 

This theme lends itself very well to Science and Geography sessions. We will learn about how and why different animals live throughout the world, in particular how they are adapted to different climates and life in the water, the air or on land. 

From a personal development point of view we will consider how we are affecting habitats in Britain and throughout the world. We will also think about the rights and needs of animals compared to ours. 

Creatively there are many things that we can make and do with natural materials. 

We are also lucky to have many community locations in Surrey that can support this theme for instance; The British Wildlife centre, Surrey wildlife trust locations and the seashore habitats on the south coast. 

Home Learning Suggestions

There are plenty of opportunities for learning about different habitats both locally and when further afield, for instance if you go away during the summer holidays. 

  • In the park or in town look at the different types of plants there, what animals can be seen? Which animals seem to be mostly in the grass, in the trees? Why is this? 
  • Collect natural materials when out and about to make models or collages of animals or habitats. 
  • There are lots of children's TV programmes about animals and habitats (though not all are suitable for more squeamish children). For instance; Deadly 60, Walk on the wild side, Mr Bloom's Nursery, Nina and the Neurons, All about animals. 
  • If you have pets then talk about what they need to live (food, water, shelter) and what kind of habitat they live in (the house, the garden, a cage, an aquarium, etc).
  • If you are going away in the summer then look at how where you go differs from home. Are the animals different? Is it hotter or colder? Are there different plants? 
  • There are many day trips out in the local area to look at native and exotic animals - see the planner for ideas.

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.
