Welcome to Alder Class!
We are made up of four boys Sidiki, Joe, Logan and Alex and four girls Grace, Poppy, Libby and Kyla. Our class teacher is Hannah and we are very lucky to have Donna, Jenna, Jess our learning support assistants and Tayla our apprentice. We follow a play based curriculum alongside early reading, writing and numeracy.
Our topic this half term is 'If you go down to the woods'. We will be reading Bear Hunt, Little Red Riding Hood and The Gruffalo as part of our shared reading time. We have been learning about Habitats in Science and have visited Lister Drive Fisheries where we seen some animals in their own habitats. We have lots of exciting activities planned for this half term, we will be visiting Delamere Forest on our first all day visit, going to the cinema and taking part in a workshop at Pets at Home. We are looking forward to Christmas where we will be taking part in lots of lovely Christmas activities, practising for our performance and taking a trip to Taskers to see all of the lovely christmas decorations.
15.11.2018 - The Gruffalo Trail - Delamere Forest
Alder Class where lucky enough to visit Delamere Forest as part of our 'If you go down to the woods' topic. The children where fantastic and walked a long way, we followed the Gruffalo trail and everybody was so excited when we finally made it (even though we did lots of pit stops to rest our legs and enjoy a light snack). We also went to McDonald's for our lunch and all of the children where amazing at waiting for their order and eating in a busy environment.
Me and My Family
Our first topic has been 'Me and my family'. The children have made their own family trees and have produced some fantastic self portraits of themselves. They have even taken sneaky selfies during ICT to put inside their photo frames that they made. During Science we have been looking at our senses - we have been exploring some very strange textures, tasting some new foods, smelling many different smells and we even went on a sound walk in school and outside whilst wearing our sound ears.
Take a look at everything we have been up to... We really do not stop in Alder Class!
During maths we have been looking at different shapes. We can all recognise simple shapes and some of us can even recognise more complicated ones. We can even say how many sides each shape has!
We have done lots of pratical activities and have made different shapes ourselves out of straws.
Football with LFC - 17.10.2018
Alder Class have been so lucky to have a weekly football session with the coaches from LFC during Autumn Term One. They have learned a variety of skills such as teamwork, listening skills, turn taking and ball skills.
Alder class enjoyed a trip to Hightown Pumpkin Patch. We very carefully selected three class pumpkins and all of the children really enjoyed the experience (especially going very fast in a wheelbarrow).
