Welcome to Green Class!
Green Class is made up of 9 children and 4 adults- Georgia, Louise (Monday- Thursday), Caroline and Sally (Friday)! We are working on being good friends, sharing and communicating our wants and needs. We love listening to stories, singing songs and learning outside the classroom. Each term we will be exploring a new and exciting topic!
This half term our topic is 'All About Me', we will be exploring each of our five senses and focusing on a different sense every week through stories and hands on activities. When learning about taste we read 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' and tried a different fruit from the story each week.
This half term our topic is 'Celebrations', we will be learning about different celebrations from around the world through stories. Each week we will be learning about a different celebration until we focus on Christmas during December. We have made edible sparklers when learning about Bonfire Night, created our own sugar skulls for Day of the Dead and made a Diva lamp for Diwali. We are excited to visit different places to see the Christmas decorations and lights and to see how Christmas is celebrated.
This term in Green Class our topic is 'Follow the Rainbow'. Each week we will be exploring a different colour and using our senses to explore the different items/foods that are in our sensory story. Throughout the week we will have different activities that link to each colour. We will be learning all about Lunar New Year this term during our focus week.
Green Class will be learning how to be safe in the community through outdoor learning. We will be going on regular class visits to local parks, cafes and shops.
This term our topic is 'Old MacDonald', we have enjoyed reading 'Let's go to the Farm' through which we have explored different farm animals. We have also enjoyed reading 'A Windy Day in Spring', it has shown us different seasonal changes that happen in Spring. As part of our topic we have visited a local farm, we went on an animal hunt looking around for different farm animals, fed the sheep and the goats and looked for signs of Spring.
This term we also have two themed weeks when we will be learning about Holi and Easter. To celebrate Holi we will be having an exciting colour throwing festival on the yard.
