Welcome to our class page, check out our pictures and see all the fun and learning we do in class. We are a class of five young men and we are super stars!
In Dee we love to work and always try our best. We learn through physical activities inside and outside the classroom.
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 love to do physical tasks and have done a lot during the past few weeks. We have made mood monsters, salt dough creations, baked rainbow cakes, created sensory bottles, designed 3D rainbows and even had a game of bowling. Check out our pictures below.
In Literacy, we have started to use colourful semantics to form and improve our sentences. We are also focusing on improving our communication and implementing new strategies.
P .E. sessions take place every other Friday in the afternoon , please ensure a full P.E. kit is brought to school and that items are clearly labelled to avoid confusion. On the other Friday afternoon we will be swimming in the school pool, please ensure a full P.E. kit is brought to school and that items are clearly labelled to avoid confusion.
Our topic this half term is getting active. This will include individual activities to get moving such as dance, yoga, walking and sensory circuits.
We do cookery every Wednesday. Please let us know if your child has any food allergies.
Work Related Learning
As part 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.
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.
We kindly request that you send in £2 weekly. This contributes to any weekly resources such as snack and cookery that class might need.
Home Learning/ Blended Learning
We will be regularly updating work linked to curriculum for blended learning including phonics work, book links, website links and activities for home.
