Welcome to Clover Class Pages!
Here you will find regular updates of our current learning, ways to help at home and topic knowledge organisers. Please have a look at these updates with your child and find time to talk about what they have been doing in class. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to come and talk to us or email the school office. Thank you for your support, we look forward to working with you and your children!
We had great fun this week learning about what our bodies can do as part of our topic 'All about me'. We sang songs like head, shoulders, knees and toes, we played Simon says and we drew round each other and labelled parts of the body. Some parts were quite tricky to find like knuckles and ankles. Later in the week we thought of all the amazing things our bodies can do like jumping, climbing, balancing and twisting. We learnt about our bones, looked at pictures of x-rays and listened to a great story called 'Funnybones'. We painted pictures of our skeleton with white paint on black paper.
This week we have been learning that humans grow and change. We watched some clips of what babies can do and then talked about what we can do now that babies can not. We also picked a picture of what we might like to do when we are older. Some of us wanted to be astronauts and gardeners!
In art we have been learning about the primary colours. We have painted with them, used pastels and today we created a picture in the style of the artist Mondrian using the primary colours.
This week has been all about settling in, getting to know each other, making new friends and getting to know the daily routines. We have all loved spending time outside, sometimes on our own on the trim trail and sometimes on the playground with the whole school.
We have been learning how to sit and listen as a class for short amounts of time to take part in circle time, bucket, play circle and drum fit. We have been working on balancing in sensory circuits and finding our own drawer for TEACCH activities.
We have done lots of singing and have enjoyed learning the story of 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. We have been busy printing with paint to create a picture of a meadow with clovers and a bridge for the goats.
We can't wait to see what fun we will have next week when we start our topic 'All about me'
