Welcome Back

Welcome Back!

Laura Walton (lwalton) on: Welcome Back

In Class 4 we are all very excited to be back at school and settled into our routines. We have already begun to work hard as you can see from the pictures! This term we are focusing on the topic of 'Family, Friends and Me.'  We will be looking at pictures of our families and homes, as well as learning about our bodies in Science. Class 4 can't wait to explore the outdoor environment during Autumn.

Class 4

Class 4 loved History Week

Moira Ellis (mellis) on: Class 4

Before the half term break we learned about the Romans in our annual history week. Class 4 participated in a range of activities including mosaics, making Roman jewellery and coins and making pottery lamps.

We all dressed in Roman costumes and decorated the school hall with columns, statues and mosaics. We held a Roman feast in the hall where we ate some of the foods that were eaten in that era. Each class made a different dish for everyone to try; class 4 made a type of bread with cheese and tomatoes which was quite yummy !!

A museum kindly lent us some artifacts for the children to explore. There were Roman shields, clothes, pots and jewellery which we found really interesting. We also had a Roman music session and learned about aqueducts.

Class 4 loved learning about the Romans, we had lots of fun and discovered lots of facts about the way they lived.

 

We are continuing with our topic on teamwork for the rest of this term. We have worked together in our cookery lessons to produce some delicious biscuits which we enjoyed tasting. In Science we potted lavender bushes for our outdoor area and planted sunflower seeds which the children look after together. They make sure they are watered, get enough sunshine and have put canes in to support the plants as they grow. Each child has a sunflower of their own and they are becoming quite competitive about whose will grow the tallest.

Later in the term we will hopefully be able to show you pictures of the flowers and find out who won !!

Class 4 are learning about Teamwork.

Moira Ellis (mellis) on: Class 4

Class 4 hope you all had a lovely Easter. We all enjoyed the break and are now ready to work hard over the next half term. Out topic for this term is Teamwork. We will be working together in a variety of activities such as making pizzas and producing things for our outdoor area to see if it makes them easier or harder, we will also be looking at how we work as a team and the qualities you need to be successful.

I must mention our school production of Aladdin. We are so proud of all our pupils and the hard work they put in to making the performance a truly memorable one.

Below are pictures of some of the children in class 4 in their costumes waiting to go on stage and perform. If you came to see Aladdin we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did !!!

Mathemagical

Moira Ellis (mellis) on: Class 4

The creative curriculum topic this term in class 4 is called Mathemagical. We will be doing a variety of activities based around Maths but in a way that will stimulate the children in class and make numbers and maths subjects more enjoyable. The books we will be reading are - Over in the Meadow, Creepy Crawlie Calypso and Farmyard Jamboree. These are all activity stories by Barefoot Books. They can all be found on Youtube. If you would like to share them with your children at home just click on the link below.

Although we are only just over a week into a new term the children have been working hard towards achieving their targets, as you can see in the pictures below.

We are also busy learning our parts and making props for our annual school play Aladdin. We hope you all come along and see the performances on the 2nd and 7th of February.

'Tastes Good, Feels Good!'

Moira Ellis (mellis) on: Class 4

As well as continuing with our topic of ‘Tastes Good, Feels Good’ Class 4 have been working hard to develop their communication and social skills. There has been so much fantastic communication through gesture, vocalisations, signing and symbol use. It is brilliant to see! Also lots of excellent sharing, well done everyone!

We are also very excited as our new outdoor area is now ready to use. We can’t wait to get out there and learn through being outdoors. (Watch this space for photographs!) 

We would also like to wish one of the adults in our class a speedy recovery as she is resting at home with a broken ankle! Get well soon Moira!

New Term , New Topic in Class 4

Moira Ellis (mellis) on: Class 4

Class 4 would like to welcome four new pupils into their class. Eva, Dexter and Jack have moved up into our class and we have a new pupil called Harvey. We hope they will be happy in class 4. We would also like to congratulate Mrs Seddon as she officially takes over her new role as Head Teacher here at The Coppice.

Our topic for this term is Tastes Good, Feels Good. We will doing a variety of activities linked to this topic. In Science we will be learning about why we need to eat and drink. We will be learning where our food comes from in Geography and in Literacy we will be reading Pizza for Pirates, The Kitchen Disco, Daddy's Sandwich and The Chocolate Monster. We will be linking all our curriculum subjects to this topic and doing some educational and fun activities.

Since coming back to school after the holidays we have been learning about Autumn. We collected some leaves from the Sensory Garden and used them for leaf printing for our class display. We did some Bark rubbing, we explored acorns and conkers and we are looking forward to making pumpkins for Halloween. Hopefully we will have some good pictures of them to show you in upcoming blogs !!
