Daily in Class 4 Parrots

Each day, the children in Class 4 arrive and complete morning work linked to their individual targets.

After Morning group which focuses on Communication and turn taking , we take part in daily exercise.  This can be wake and shake or Running in the QUAD space.

We always eat snack together and use communication boards to request what we would like, using our manners.

In an afternoon we brush our teeth before starting learning.

Current Topic - Rosehill Flight Of Dreams

This Term we have been learning all about Types of Travel and visiting different locations around the world on holiday.  We all made passports, luggage tags and suitcases in preparation for this. 

We read the story, 'If we had a sailboat' and thought about how we would trabel if we went by boat, aeroplane, train or rocket.  We made paper aeroplanes, a Class 4 Train out of clay and tested which boats float best in science.

When thinking about where we would go on a rocket, we learnt all about the planets!

We visited Tollerton airport to look at the aeroplanes and next term will be learning about how to travel safely on public transport including buses, trains and trams!

This is the song that we have used in Science to learn about the 8 planets!

Class 4 are very clever and now know the 7 continents after singing this song.

Learn to sign 'Summer Holiday' by Cliff Richard with Singing Hands.

The children have been signing and singing this song daily.
