Summer Term 2- Let's move!
This term we will be exploring our bodies, getting fit for the summer and none stop moving! We are so excited for this term - let's hope the sun shines bright for us and we can learn to enjoy exercise and keeping fit.
We will be timetabling lots of different activities into daily routine and learning all about different sports.
Summer Term 1 - All around the world.
This term we will be travelling all around the world!! We are so excited for this term - let's hope the sun shines bright for us on our adventure!
The first week we will be enrolling into pilot school! We will have a week of training and making our own plane, ready to get going.
The next 6 weeks we will be travelling to different countries around the world; exploring their culture, food, weather and famous landmarks!
During trampolining, the boys are using a communication board to focus on the words 'who' and 'what'.
The boys are asked 'who is on the trampoline?' and will choose from the pictures of staff or children. They are also asked ' what are they doing?' and choose from a range of moves eg star jump, tuck jump etc.
The boys don't even realise they are doing literacy :)
Spring Term 2 - Nick Sharrett Books.
This term we will be looking at a range of different books written or illustrated by Nick Sharrett.
The first book we are reading is ‘Shark in the Park’. We will post all our books on here so you read them at home :)
This week during cookery, the boys have been making Valentine's Day cheesecakes.
Pictures were taken of each stage of the making process.
In our literally session today, the boys had to sequence the pictures and then make their own cheesecakes following the pictures.
It was lovely to watch them really concentrating on each picture to make sure they were following the next step correctly.
It's Valentine's day in Rowan Class this week. We will be reading our Valentine's day PowerPoint, making sentences doing some lovely arts and crafts and spreading the love.
Check out the PowerPoint below and click on the creative section of the website to see what we have been getting up to.
After the literacy sessions the boys take part in 1:1 sessions. They are currently using the symbols to create sentences about the different animals.
Everyone is loving choosing the different colours and starting each sentence with 'I see'.
The boys loved using their homemade binoculars to search for animals during our literacy lessons.
Spring Term 1 - 'Animal Boogie'.
This term we will be looking at a range of different books and powerpoints. We will be focusing on sentence structure and colourful semantics.
We will post all our books on here so you read them at home :)
Before lunch time we listen to a few songs to make us nice and calm before lunch time. For the last few weeks we have been listening to Christmas songs.
We complete the sentences "I hear .. " using the different photos. Our favourite song is Frosty the snowman!
The story we are reading as a class for the next 2 weeks is called 'The Jolly Postman'. Please click on the link below to have a listen at home. :)
We had a fantastic morning making s'mores at forest school (check out the forest school section to see the pics!)
Once back to school we used our visual instructions page (see below) to help sequence the pictures in order of what we did. We all needed a little bit of help, but we enjoyed discussing each picture.
We have been having a look at the different jobs a postman and post woman do, the uniform they wear and where they might go during the day.
We have helped them with their jobs and built/ wrote sentences during our 1.1 literacy sessions.
But first, during our first week back at school we will be exploring ‘Bonfire night’ and all the lovely things we can do during this time. We will also be looking at how we can keep ourselves safe.
