Wishing you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR and a warm welcome to our class page!

In Class 5 there are eight KS2 children. Our Teaching Assistants are Sophie, Wendy/Georgia, Sally and Sidra.


We have an exciting and busy Spring Term ahead...

We will be swimming every Monday this term, so don't forget your kit!


The themes for our Semi-Formal Curriculum this term are:

Spring Term 1: North and South Ameria

Spring Term 2: Things that Grow

(See below for our CURRICULUM MAP, which includes all the subjects and topics which we will be covering this term.)

In English, we will be reading and taking part in our new Sensory Story 'Rainforest' and learning all about the plants and animals in Brazil. We will also be learning and practicing phonics and reading skills every day. 

In Maths, we will be developing number sense through practical, nature activities and we will also be learning about Time. 

We will be building joint attention through our Attention Autism 'bucket' sessions. We will be learning how to co-regulate using the Zones of Regulation and building our communication in Intensive Interactions and Communication sessions. 


Key Info:

  • Please send in a spare set of clothes and waterproof coat and wellies, so we are always prepared for whatever the weather brings us.
  • Please send in your child's snacks and a water bottle.
  • School Dinners: make sure you have ordered a school lunch.
  • Remember to check your child's chatbook daily and emails for updates and messages. 
  • Please let us know ASAP if there are any issues, new medical information or useful information that will help us to care for your child. 

If you' like to get in touch or have any questions, please don't hesitate to ring me, email me, or send me a message in your child's chat book- we are always happy to hear from you and will support in any way we can.

Thank you for your ongoing support,

Christy and the Class 5 Team
