This half term, we have been doing lots of work around our health and wellbeing through 'Over the Rainbow' Month. We have done lots of work about our emotions and how to recognise which emotions we are feeling. We have also been learning different mindfulness activities such as meditation, yoga, and art.
We have done lots of art activities too, we have enjoyed making suncatchers, self portraits and autumn tree pictures.
In Literacy, we have started to use colourful semantics to form and improve our sentences. We also planned, wrote and performed our own Rainbow Poems. Keep an eye on this page to see our videos soon!
We do cookery every Tuesday. Please let us know if your child has any food allergies.
Work Related LearningAs park of supporting young people to develop their skills, your child will take part in work related learning experiences. This term your child is going to be baking and selling loaves of bread. This will involve food hygiene, following instructions, working alongside others, developing baking skills and customer service skills.
We ask parents and carers to return the home / school diary each day, as this will enable the class teacher to provide comments and information about your child’s day in school. If there are particular things you wish to be informed about, please speak with me.
Individual Education Plan(IEP’s)
This plan sets out educational targets that your child is working on for the term. There is a section in the plan which provides parents and carers with activities or tasks you can do at home to support your child’s learning. Plans are updated each term and sent home.
All children and young people are encouraged to engage in reading and develop a love of stories. Below are some links to sites which have lots of ebooks you can read or listen to.
HomeworkSome pupils will receive homework in English and Maths to support their learning.
Please feel free to use the following as a structure for your daily home learning. It follows a similar routine to what we do at school. You can engage in as many or few activities as you would like and can email me anytime with questions or to share photos of work completed at home.
