Swans

Welcome to Swans Class

We are a happy class of 9 pupils aged between 6 and 8. We have 5 members of our class team: Liv is our class teacher and we have 4 great teaching assistants: Tracie, Paige, Antonio and Poppie. Everybody works together to help us achieve our individual goals in all aspects of the school day.

We learn through the EYFS curriculum which supports us in the prime areas of learning – physical development, personal and social development and communication and language. The provision and experiences in class support us to gain the skills necessary to access other aspects of the curriculum, expressive arts, literacy, mathematics and understanding of the world.

There are plenty of opportunities for us to learn through practical play activities. Through play and exploration, both independently and alongside an adult, we learn a whole range of skills across all areas of the curriculum.

We are very lucky to have a spacious classroom with separate rooms for messy play and snack as well as learning and focused work. These facilities really enable the class team to plan and deliver to our individual needs. As well as this we have our own secure outdoor space with a variety of outdoor equipment.

During the school week we participate in a variety of activities including forest school, dough disco, cookery, music and art. We will be able to enjoy our PE sessions with Zac and forest school sessions with Adam. Each of us have our own Structured Support Plan which enables us to have a personalised curriculum to allow us to achieve our individual goals. We enjoy whole group sessions as well as working in smaller groups and individually within the class.

We have a busy year planned, where each term the Primary Department will have a different topic to focus around. This term we are focusing around our topic of ‘Under the Sea’. We will be sharing stories such as ‘Commotion in the Ocean’ and ‘The Rainbow Fish’, and using all our senses to to experience exciting activities.
