Class Seven

This term, Class 7’s topic is ‘Musicals’.  We have been focusing on two Musicals in particular, ‘Aladdin‘ and ‘Shrek‘.

We are exploring these Musicals in different ways; through sensory stories, by listening to different types of music, creating and decorating our own props and choosing within the continuous provision areas.

Curriculum

In Numeracy, Class 7 have been focusing on our counting skills through number songs.  We have also been looking at different shapes through exploring their size and weight.

In Literacy, we have been looking at Shrek the Musical – through reading a Shrek sensory story and mark making in the big green swamp.  We have also been using our speaking skills in the Gamelan area and our listening skills through Animal Yoga.

In Science, Class 7 have been exploring plants and trees by going on an outdoor walk in the school grounds.  We have done this through smelling, touching and looking at parts of the outdoors.

Our RE lesson is spent on the interactive magic carpet in school.  It focuses on special people in our school, where the pupils find the different people on the carpet through movement.

In PE, we are focusing on dance – looking at how our bodies move to different types of music.

On a weekly basis, Class 7 spend time making delicious food in the cooking room, playing music in the soft play area, bouncing in the rebound room and exploring their different senses in the sensory room.

On Tuesday mornings, we go swimming in three separate groups.
