Welcome to Clyde Class!

General Information

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 (IEPs)

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.

 

Reading Books

All children and young people are encouraged to engage in reading and develop a love of stories. We have a wide range of reading books, sensory books and big books to support the learning styles and levels for each child. Every Friday, your child will receive a new reading book. Please encourage your child to engage with the characters and stories.

 

Homework

Some pupils will receive homework in English and Maths to support their learning. If your child is finding homework a challenge please come into school so we can discuss it together.

 

P.E.

P.E. lessons are on Wednesday afternoon.

Swimming sessions take place on alternate Wednesdays at The Meadows Pool in Maghull, or for some of our students, on Friday mornings at the Hydrotherapy pool in Rowan Park.

During our P.E. sessions we discuss the importance of keeping fit and the affect it has on our bodies. We look at ways we can keep healthy through a balanced diet and regular exercise.

 

Cookery

We do cookery every Tuesday morning. Please let us know if your child has any allergies.

Cookery lessons focus on independence skills and learning to cook for ourselves.

Self Presentation

Science: Autumn Term
In Science we have been learning about materials that we use in the home and how their properties determine what they are used for. We understand why wool and fabric are used for clothes, why bricks are used to build houses with, why windows are made from glass and why knives and forks are made from metal. We have explored lots of different types of materials and have made models from plastic objects and made pom-poms from wool.

Cookery: Autumn Term

This term we have been working on our independent skills in cookery. We chose from a wide variety of fillings to make our own sandwiches, somebody even chose cheese and jam together! We weren't sure about it but he said it was delicious!

Some students chose to make beans on toast and were very careful in opening the tin and heating the beans up on the cooker. Yet again the results were delicious leaving empty plates all round.

Clyde Class really enjoy baking and have made many goodies that contestants on " The Great British Bake Off" would be proud of, including cakes, cookies, scones and gingerbread men. 
Now we have begun our Christmas baking with mince pies.

Pumpkin Picking and Carving

Clyde Class went out on the minibus to The Pumpkin Patch in Hightown and had a busy morning choosing their pumpkins. They were very big and very heavy! Then when we were back in class we set about the task of scooping out the seeds and carving our pumpkins.

In PSHE we have learning about how it is important to have a healthy lifestyle. We have learned which food is healthy for us and the importance of keeping ourselves and our environment clean. We discussed the need to have some activity to keep our bodies healthy. We listened to our hearts using a stethoscope. For most of us this was the first time we have heard our own heartbeat and we were quite amazed! We listened to our hearts after exercise and we could hear how our hearts beat faster and louder.
