Lilac Class 2018-2019
Welcome to Lilac class!
We are class of 8 children and 4 adults: Zofia, Jess, Lucy (Monday and Tuesday) and Louise (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). We are busy this term and learn about Pets. We are making our science experiments regarding pets, our favourite was “How fish breathe” when we were filtering water mixed with glitter through a coffee filter.
We love our art lessons, at the beginning of this term we have been learning about Paul Klee’s “Gold fish” painting and we have created our own paintings with a gold fish. During art we explore range of materials and tools to paint with: feathers, cotton wool, we are also experimenting with colours.
This half term our focus on Mathematics is patterns, size and numbers, we are trying to understand what numbers actually mean. We use variety of objects, counters to help us understand.
Our story this term is a pet version of Julia Donaldson “Squash and squeeze” and we all love this story. We are creating a big sensory book for others to read. Every week we do phonics, reading and drama when we tell our social stories and how to solve our problems. We are doing Hand Class every week and enjoy our gross and fine motor skills activities. Our favourite was transferring chestnuts with tea infusers.
For PE we are swimming every week and love our fencing sessions with Pete!

We are a class of 10 pupils and 3 adults: Maddie, Ann and Helen. We also have David helping us every Wednesday. Lilac class are settling in very well to their new class and have been busy getting to know each other. We are a lively class and love singing.
This term we will be teaming up with Gold and Onyx class for our topic ‘Attracta’s Tractors’. We will be looking at our local area and history as well as different types of transport. In our D.T and art lessons we will be making our own models of transport. How exciting!
For the next couple of weeks, we are lucky to be working with Chris, the Judo instructor, on perfecting our Judo skills. Each week, we are also very fortunate to have a very special visitor in our class. Dylan, the lovely Golden Retriever, visits our class in the afternoons and everyone loves playing, feeding and walking Dylan around the class.
Please feel free to look at some of our areas of learning for this term.
