Term 6

English

After a very short Term 5, Silver class will continue learning through the book “Aliens Love Underpants” by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort. 

Silver class will be extending their topic through the book Aliens Love Underpants. We will explore space through the story and using role play, Makaton signs and sensory objects. Some pupils will write their own stories with a beginning, middle and end and create their own aliens. Whilst others will practice their reading. Other pupils still use the eye gaze to read the story and make choices.

Each week we will practice our fine motor skills by visiting the dough disco and doing topic based fine and gross motor skill activities. We continue using a reading approach called See&Learn to start our pupils off on their reading, which then progresses into a reading scheme. We try and read twice a week with each pupil.

Attention Autism (bucket) will continue daily for most pupils. Some pupils will take part in phonics groups to support their reading and writing skills. 

Maths – Number

This term our maths will focus on consolidating silver class’ learning. For some pupils, this will be number work involving place value, counting, problem solving or using the number operations. For others, this will be shape, space or measure work, including time and money.
