In Trumpet Class we start the day with a fitness activity such as Golden Mile or Just Dance. This helps us to stay alert and maintain our concentration in lessons for longer.
In Numeracy, we use Numicon and other resources 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, too.
Reading, spelling and writing skills are taught through phonics and literacy lessons, where we are encouraged to work with our friends as, this also develops are communication skills. We enjoy learning how to communicate effectively through reading, writing, speaking and listening.
We love creative lessons where we explore lots of different ways expressing ourselves through art. We enjoy working as a team to make new displays in our classroom to make it fun and welcoming.
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.

They have enjoyed making a Chinese wishing tree in the classroom where they all expressed their wishes for the new year. They have been cooking egg fried rice and stir-fry vegetables and using chopsticks! This has increased their indeendence skills. They have also been enjoying learning about China and the traditions Chinese people have.
