Welcome to Blue Class!
We are a mixed year group class, consisting of pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 with ten students and five members of staff.
We learn through a mix of whole class teaching, 1:1 work and small group work. Usually in the mornings, we focus on Phonics, Reading, Writing and Maths, and in the afternoons, we learn through a thematic approach combining Science, History, Geography, art, music and computers. We have separate PE lessons covering dance, athletics and team games and we also do activities such as yoga, relaxation and cooking.
We have a high focus on Speaking and Listening, fine motor and sensory activities, which run through all of our curriculum areas. PSHE is very important to us and we do lots of team games and turn taking to help us work together well with our friends.
We also play lots of group games during our week. These really help us to follow instructions, and practice our turn taking and listening skills and learn how to manage our emotions. We have sensory and movement breaks throughout the day to re-focus our bodies and mind
Ms Barker is our teacher and the teaching assistants are Ms Samra, Ms Taylor, Mrs Mackay and Mrs Knipe.
