Our focus in cookery this half term is Pizza- we've made the dough and then added different toppings each week. The children have enjoyed eating their pizza's!

Welcome back to a new school term! My name is Emma and I am your child's class teacher this year. There are 6 boys in Green class and they have already settled in well and made good friends. In Green class we have 4 teaching assistants; Michelle, Elaine, Claire and Elaine.
This half term our topic is 'What a Load of Junk!' Here are the themes for each week:
Recycling/ Junk models
During each week we will become detectives- going out and about identifying different items made of specific materials.We'll also be making different crafts using recycled materials. We're planning a trip to the recycling bank and are going to collect clothes to donate to charity. We'll also be creating some music using different materials to create different sounds. Below are some photos of us making our binoculars and going on a junk hunt!
In English we are reading the story 'Hamilton's Hat's. Using the story the children will be working on further developing their fine and gross motor skills, reading, writing and speaking and listening.
In Maths we will be using Hamilton and some hats to further develop their mathematical skills in a creative and fun way!
In cookery we will be making soups, in computing we will be using drawing packages to create marks and images and in science we will be learning about materials and their properties linked to our topic.
The children are grouped across the year band in signing, phonics, attention skills and music so they will be able to mix with their peers and move around the school as independently as possible.
I am looking forward to meeting you at Meet the Teacher soon and will speak to you via the home/ school book weekly.
