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.
We made a tower for ‘Rapunzel’ and explored ice and snow for ‘Frozen’ . Class 4 were so engaged in a music therapy session and also attended well in OT group with Catherine. We have also been working on taking turns and sharing our news from home. One boy had a birthday to celebrate—Happy Birthday!
As well as continuing our work on numeracy and literacy, we have focused on art this month, through our topic on ‘Castles and Fairy Tales’ – we have used mod roc, playdough and collage. We were very keen to begin pottery. We have carved our pumpkin and are working on our Halloween art – which we love doing.
Hard to believe Summer is over! Class 4 have been settling in and getting used to new routines. Everyone is enjoying our Welcome Group. We have been busy with art, P.E., numeracy and communication. We were all really engaged in our Music Therapy group and we look forward to continuing it next term.
A fabulous end of year for Class 4. We had sports Day, reward time at the Funhouse and a Teddy Bears Picnic. We had a challenge to see who could grow the tallest sunflower! Well done everyone! One of our pupils was awarded The Staff Cup for Outstanding Achievement at Prize Day and we enjoyed an end of year trip to Newcastle. We also had Claire’s dad join us for a Special Welcome Circle. What a busy June!
