In Trumpet Class we start the day with a fitness activity such as badminton or Just Dance. This helps us to stay alert and maintain our concentration in lessons for longer.
In Numeracy, we use Numicon to support our understanding of numbers and the number system; from developing early counting skills to multiplication and division. We use functional maths skills when we cook and go shopping.
Reading, spelling and writing skills are taught through phonics lessons, where we are encouraged to work with our friends as this also develops are communication skills. 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.
We like to go out as often as we can. Throughout the year we go to the school allotment, where we prepare the soil, plant seeds and harvest our crops. We enjoy cooking our fresh produce back in school. We also go to Andover Tennis Club and Andover Leisure Centre swimming on a regular basis.
