Hello and welcome to the Class 4 page.

Class 4 are a KS2 group with eight children, the Teaching Assistants are Becky and Maria.

In Class 4 we will be developing our early communication skills, learning and practicing phonics and reading skills every day. In maths we will focus on practical activities to give us a good understandnig of number and shape. A focus for developing our communciation skills will be building our ability to attend to one another through Intensive Interactions, joint attention and and Communication sessions. 

This term our topic is North and South America, we have been reading and exploring the sensory story Tico Tango where we meet lots of animals and get to taste and smell different fruits such as mango and papaya. In computing we are learning to sequence events from the story using objects of reference or symbols. In art we are learning all about the South American artist Beatriz Milhazes and having fun developing our creative skills by copying her techniques such as dots and swirls. In Physical education we are developing our independence and turn taking skills by playing group games and changing into our PE kits. In maths we are learning about positional language and having fun putting our fingers and hands in/on or under different sensory materials such as jelly and water.

Daily, we are learning to understand our emotions, develop our communication skills and understand the world around us.
