Class 3 is a very fit and active class. Each morning we wake up by either doing a Fitness Circuit or a Sensory Circuit. These help us to stay alert and maintain our concentration in lessons for longer. After lunch we like to do Tai Chi, as this helps to keep us calm and helps focus our attention for the afternoon lessons.
We enjoy a range of physical activities each week, including yoga, cycling, cricket, tennis and gymnastics. We regularly walk to the local supermarket and sometimes we cycle there.
Each term we learn literacy skills through oral story telling. We enjoy learning to tell stories by heart and then developing them to create our own stories. We use a computer programme called Lexia to help develop our reading skills. It is very motivating and it gives us lots of incentive to work harder.
In Numeracy, we use Nuimcon to support our understanding of numbers and the number system; from developing early counting skills right up to simple multiplication. We also experience lots of numeracy through cooking and shopping.
In Class 3 we go on our first residential trip. This year we are going to Avon Tyrell, in the New Forest. We stay for one night and participate in lots of fun activities such as archery, orienteering and bush-craft.
