Everyone has had a busy November.
We have continued to learn about our 5 senses this month. We have been practicing Communication and Early Literacy Skills as well as Early Number and Money. One of our pupils had a birthday this month and we celebrated with a lovely birthday break. We enjoyed Sensory Sensations in the Hall when some students from Stanmillis College came to visit.
We have enjoyed Autumn and topic related Art as well as benefitting from the visits from Janet, the music therapist.
Class 4 have been so busy this month. We had a Maths week based on the topic ‘Dinosaurs’, a magical experience with ‘Tribe’ and sessions with the Music Therapist.
We have been learning about vision and hearing in our Topic ‘Our 5 senses’. We have also worked on our communication skills, developing our fine motor skills and play skills.
We hope that all our pupils and their families have a relaxing mid-term break.
The pupils have settled well into their new classroom. We have also welcomed into our class a boy who is new to our school. He is becoming more familiar with the school environment and routines.
The recent good weather has allowed us opportunities for learning through outdoor play. Other favourite activities this month have included seasonal art, sensory circuit, intensive interactions and other practical activities to develop early literacy and numeracy skills.
What a great year we have had in Class 4 ! Well done everyone and have a lovely summer!
May was a busy month but the highlight was of course our ‘Big Fun Week’.
This month we looked at travelling on water. We explored floating and sinking and made boats to see if they would float. We worked on social skills, asking someone to play and we have continued with our band practice! We also found some time to chill!
Again, another busy month! We have continued our ‘Gathering Drums’, practised our marching band for Green Day, been inspired by World Book Day and developed our art skills in preparation for Mothers’ Day. We also took advantage of the fine weather to visit the park!
Class 4 were very focussed on our transport topic this month. We did traffic surveys in the car park, looked at road safety and investigated which colour is best seen in the dark. Yellow. We surveyed how everyone in class 4 comes to school and made a pictograph to record our findings. We also celebrated a birthday!! Happy Birthday!
Class 4 have really engaged in ‘Gathering Drums’.
We began work on our new topic of ‘Travel and transport’ and pupils have made a collage of a big yellow bus and sorted vehicles between land, sea and air. We have sorted clothes between winter and summer and have also explored migration.
