Yellow Class

  Welcome to

Yellow Class!

In Yellow Class we have 10 boys, who work with 5 staff each day.  There are two teachers who job share, 1 HLTA and 3 full time TAs.

The staff team are supported by Speech Therapists, Physiotherapists and Occupational therapists.

 

The children work in small groups or one to one with an adult throughout the day and occasionally in a whole class group.

 

We are learning all about Schools.  We will be looking at lots of different aspects of school including mapping and navigating around our school, role play, designing school logos and uniform, playing games, creating pictograms of favourite school meals or how we get to school etc.

​We will be learning all about these through a wide range of activities, incorporating it into our core curriculum.

Home Learning

 

We do lots of different things in class, one of which is fine motor activities.  Here are a few ideas of funs activities you could try at home.

 

  • Squeezing pegs.  You could put then on the edges of opened tins, on a piece of board, peg onto teddy or maybe get your child to help hang the washing out!
  • Playing with play dough (or any kind of dough).  Pulling, squashing, rolling or cutting with utensils.  Pushing items into the dough.  You could make some very individual bread 'rolls'.
  • Pushing straws into holes in items like a colander, or make holes in the top of a plastic container.
  • Dropping items into containers with varying sized openings (tins make really good noises when things are dropped into them)
  • Or using tins in a range of other ways. 
  • Scissor skills.  Practicing using scissors by chopping coloured pieces of paper up to be used for collage, snipping a piece of green paper to make grass or cutting along lines on work sheets http://www.dltk-kids.com/crafts/miscellaneous/scissor_skills.htm 
  • Playing games like 'Connect 4' or 'Kerplunk'
