Class 5

Autumn Term 2019

Sian Peel (speel) on: Class 5

Over the past few weeks we have been busy settling into our new class and routines. We have just started learning about Pablo Picasso and have made a facial features montage using a range of art media such as crayons, felt tips and pastels.

We have harvested our sunflower seeds, which Class 5 planted in the Spring Term and have sent them home with pupils ready to grow another crop of sunflowers next year.

Busy!

Sian Peel (speel) on: Class 5

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.

Class 5

Summer Term!

Angela Watson (awatson) on: Class 5

This term we have been busy planting up our garden with some lovely sunflowers, onions, sweet peas and radish!

We grew them all from seeds and kept them safe until the seedlings were big enough to plant outside.

We have also been looking at bug houses in Science this term and have created a bug house corner in our garden with houses bought from the shops and some that we have made ourselves. We even made a bug house to take home and place in our gardens to observe what happens and whether they attract any bugs to live in them.

In maths we have been looking at size, with ‘big’ and ‘small’ boxes. We each stacked the boxes with the ‘biggest’ box at the bottom and ‘smallest’ boxes at the top. Then we had great fun knocking them over.

Problem Solving!

Angela Watson (awatson) on: Class 5

Class 5 have been working hard again this half term. We have been building cardboard towers. It sounds easy, but when you have 11 boxes, all different sizes and strengths and have to work out which is the best way to stack them, it gets quite difficult! Class 5 showed themselves to be equal to the task and worked hard to problem solve and produce strong towers. Their favourite part was shouting ‘Timber’ and then pushing the towers over.

Happy New Year

Angela Watson (awatson) on: Class 5

We have begun working on our new topic. The overarching theme for the school is ‘Back to the Future’ and our class topic is ‘In the News’. We have decided to focus on recycling waste as our theme. We have been looking at the impact that waste has on the environment and what we can do to help. If you have any good recycling tips don’t hesitate to share them with us. We have begun exploring some of the packaging we use today for everyday items and the possible alternatives. We will keep you up to date with the results!

This term we are looking at the work of the artist Emma Lambert, her colourful landscapes have inspired us to produce our own collages.

We are also exploring some different genres of music to allow our pupils to experience a wide range including rock, jazz, blues and rap.

Welcome back

Angela Watson (awatson) on: Class 5

Welcome back to Class 5.  I hope you have all had a restful summer!  We are already 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.

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!

Mrs Gaskell has been bringing some of her pets into school to meet us. We have been visited by Rocky the cat and Ruby the dog. The pupils in Class 5 loved meeting them.
