Autumn 1 'Over the Rainbow Month'
This month our focus has been Mental Health and Well-being in Badgers Class. We have taken part in 'Over the Rainbow Month' activities, all designed to promote a healthy body and mind. We have taken part in class yoga, mindfulness, mindful 'Mandala' art using pasta and paint, gardening, healthy eating and we have also learnt about different emotions and feelings by learning about the mood monsters! We have learnt about different strategies that can help manage our well-being and Mental Health and had fun making our own Salt Dough worry monsters and balloon blobs! Have a look below at some photos of the great activities we have been taking part in.
In Literacy, we will be focusing on the topic 'Autumn' and reading stories such as, 'Don't Hog the Hedge!'. We will enjoy fun and active group sessions as well as individual activities linked to our targets such as independent reading, handwriting and spelling.
In Maths we will focus on Money. We will also complete practical box work linked to our targets.
In Science our topic is 'Characteristics of Materials' where we will be exploring different textures, visuals, and objects from our environment.
Please find ideas and activities below that you can do with your child during our school closure. These will link to our current topics.
Home School Diaries
We ask families and carers to return the Home School diary each day, as this will enable the class staff 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 the class teacher.
Individual Education Plans
These set out the priority educational targets that your child is working on for the term. IEPs are updated each term and sent home. If there is anything that you would particularly like us to be working on, please just let us know.
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 style and levels for each child. Every Friday, your child will receive a new reading book and this will be sent home with them to enjoy with you over the weekend. Please encourage your child to engage with the characters and stories and fill in the reading record to let your child's class staff know how they have got on and then please return to school on a Monday morning.
We kindly request that you send in £2 weekly. This contributes to any weekly resources such as snack and cookery that class might need.
