Class 5

Welcome back

Angela Watson (awatson) on: Class 5

Welcome back to Class 5.  I hope you have all had a restful summer!  We are all ready working hard, exploring different aspects of our topic for the term - 'Community Jigsaw', within the whole school theme of 'Living Together'.

We have collected leaves from the outdoor area and made prints together.  We will continue to make our own lunch on Tuesdays - this week was fish fingers, mash and beans followed by cake and custard (an easy one to start with!)  This term we will be taking part in lots of team activities as we learn to work together as a new group.  Here are some of the great photos from our first week.

Team work!

Angela Watson (awatson) on: Class 5

This term our theme is Teamwork. We have been sharing good times together both in lessons and during free time. These photos show what a good time we’ve had working together.

Later on this term we will be working with pupils in other classes to plan and deliver mini parties with them.

Teamwork!

Angela Watson (awatson) on: Class 5

Our topic this term is Teamwork. In Class 5 we have being working together to create a sensory story for all. Our story this term is ‘The Enormous Turnip’. We have been planting green beans, cherry tomatoes and exploring the outdoor area for different insets we can find then we are going to design and build them a house. We have also used papier mache to create large turnips and lots of outdoor activities looking for weeds and insects using our senses of smell, touch, taste, and vision.

We have also been looking at healthy eating creating our own pizza and thinking very hard what toppings to use. We have worked on our own independent skills at tuck time making choices and independently using the toaster working on our fine motor skills using cutlery for spreading, cutting and finally sampling what we had created.

Spring term in class 5

Angela Watson (awatson) on: Class 5

This term is about measuring up, shape and numbers all around. So we have done this in various ways from food items to hiding and finding objects around the class room.

The Disgusting Sandwich

Angela Watson (awatson) on: Class 5

A fantastic start to the new academic year! Class 5 have been working exceptionally hard as you can see. We have been enjoying the story The Disgusting Sandwich and as part of that have been exploring lots of different aspects of food - making choices about what we want to eat, planting, printing and cooking with a wide variety of foods.

Busy Busy!

Angela Watson (awatson) on: Class 5 2016/2017

In Class 5 this term we have been making friends and working very hard. We have settled into new groupings for some activities and been working with some new staff and pupils from different classes. Everyone seems to have grown in confidence!

We have enjoyed exploring our sensory story ‘The Disgusting Sandwich’ which has been quite a messy job but lots of fun too.

This half term we are enjoying getting out and about accessing Preston Trampoline Centre for rebound therapy and continue to make our own lunch on Tuesdays.

We are looking forward to the run up to Christmas and all the excitement that comes along with it.

We have included just a few photos to share with you some of the great things we have been doing.

Summer Term

Angela Watson (awatson) on: Class 5 2016/2017

As part of our topic on Myths and Legends, Class 5 have been learning about Greek mythology. As part of topic we have taken part in sensory sessions about sailing off to find the island of the cyclops. In Design and Technology we have been making paper boats and testing them to see how they float. We were all very excited to launch them in the water and watch them float. Some pupils found it very funny when his began to sink!
