The spring term curriculum overview will give you an insight into your child’s learning for the term ahead, and the available weekly timetable will give you an opportunity to see what your child will be doing each day. Each half term, a weekly overview will also be provided in your child’s home-school book that will let you know what our story of the week will be and what the focus is for our weekly show and tell.
PE will take place every Monday and Friday. PE kits shall be kept in school until the end of each term. We recommend that you include both indoor and outdoor footwear for child, along with a tracksuit for the colder months. Again, please ensure that PE kits, including footwear, are clearly labelled with your child’s name to prevent loss.
Class 7 have been learning about the needs of a baby in science.
Class 7 went on a visit To Rays Farm. We went on a woodland walk and saw lots of fairy tale characters. We went in the fairy ring, held hands, closed our eyes and made a wish. but we can't tell anyone what our wish was.
We then had lunch and went around the farm animals. We saw lots of different animals, goats, reindeer, ducks, geese, llamas, horses, guinea pigs, sheep, turkeys and lots of different owls. They had a Kune kune pig which followed he rangers instructions and sat when she asked her to.
While we were there 2 baby goats were born. The ranger asked class 7 if they had any names for the goats. class 7 chose Rosie and the farm have called her Rosie class 7 were very excited.
We have been very busy in Class 7.
Thank you to all parent/carers who attended our speech and communication workshop. We looked at current Speech and Language targets and how parents could support their children with these at home.
We wrote letters to Santa and then went for a walk to the post box to post them. We really enjoyed this and are hoping to get a reply!

Look at our new display and the fantastic things we enjoy and are good at! To celebrate 'Autism Awareness month' class 7 discussed what made them special and things that they were good at.

Look at our amazing homework about Christopher Columbus- well done!

Finally on Friday, we learnt all about mould and why it is important to wash our hands!
This week (12th March) we have started a reading buddies system during ERIC time to increase the confidence and reading abilities of the children.
Children have been put into groups of 2 or 3. They are taking on either the 'teacher' or 'reader' role and swap daily, hearing each other read.
